Epicenter Africa recently completed a solar street lighting project in the town and installed 400 lumps across the whole town.

SUPERIOR HOMES, ATHI RIVER

Superior homes, a real estate developer has put up over 700 units in Athi river area in the outskirts of Nairobi. The main source of water is borehole characterized by high levels of dissolved salts and minerals above the recommended WHO standards making the water unsuitable for consumption. The capital cost of building a treatment plant for this population proved extremely expensive. The anticipated operation and maintenance costs were also prohibitive. Epicenter Africa installed 400 mini reverse osmosis units fitted under the sink in every home with a daily capacity of 400 litres of purified drinking water. This solution has provided savings of up to Kes.4,000 monthly per home to the residents on household budgets for bottled drinking and cooking water. Health benefits have also been realized from the fluorides, hardness and other harmful minerals in the water removed. The value of these homes has also gone up significantly.

MR. & MRS. WACHIRA, SYOKIMAU

Mr. & Mrs. Wachira are elated home owners living in Syokimau area. They were earlier challenged by escalating power bills in their home, that went as high as kes.40,000 a month. This was not sustainable and they resulted to power saving methods which became uncomfortable, and denied them the opportunity to enjoy their beautiful home. We proposed a lighting solution the included solar as the primary power source with back up from grid power. Since then, their bills have drop to an average of kes.700 a month. They can now enjoy security lighting throughout the night, uninterrupted power supply and hot water showers, without worries of an odd bill at the end of the month.
