United Selections Transitions to Renewable Energy

July 19, 2019

United Selections is a premier rose breeder headquartered in Nakuru, Kenya. For several years, the company has operated by its slogan “breeding a colourful future.” It’s through this mantra that the company strives to create a better environment for everyone by being sustainable in all their operations.

In view of this, United Selections has closed a lease contract with Kenyan-based project owner Ecoligo Ltd (100% subsidiary of the Ecoligo GmbH). Together, they’re planning to roll out a solar-powered system.

The planned photovoltaic system with a total capacity of 110 kWp will power the farm in Nakuru, Kenya. As a result, United Selections will not only save on the electricity costs but also the CO 2 emissions of the company which will reduce by up to 113 tonnes of CO 2 per year.

Leveling of the site ongoing

This project is expected to kick off in August/September of this year. We’ll keep you updated on all the developments as they happen. Stay up to date on social media – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Pinterest.
