Bold Idea 

Realize sustainable, decentralized micro-hydro energy and distribution systems to provide electricity to rural Kenya.


Robert Mutsaers, a designer and construction supervisor from Holland, moved to Kenya in 2002 to renovate a lodge on Mount Kenya. He attributes a meeting with local farmers for sparking his interest in creating Green Power in order to develop a new solution for rural electrification.
