The Company abstracts its water from the Narok River, a few metres upstream of the Thompson Falls, using surface pups operating on grid power.

As the demand for water supply as grown over the years in Nyahururu so has the cost of electricity. Hence, the broad objective to cut the cost electricity for running water pumps by shifting from total reliance on grid power.

This shift to solar power will enhance consistency in water production and supply in Nyahururu town and its environs, regardless of grid power supply downtime, cutting down utility operations cost in the long run.
