Kirinyaga County MP The Hon. Wakili Njeri Maina has demonstrated her commitment towards advancing the clamour for green energy which is one of the prerequisites to save mother nature from the wrath of climate change.
Hon. Njeri is working in collaboration with stakeholders in rolling out an initiative that aims to promote use of energy saving jikos across Kirinyaga County.
In a distribution exercise on Tuesday, Njeri Maina noted:
“I would like to thank the ministry of energy for facilitating distribution of energy saving jikos across Kirinyaga.
My office will be partnering with the ministry to offer renewable and sustainable solutions to the energy needs of our people across Kirinyaga.
We will also be constructing biogas production zones in select areas across the county in bids to bolster and counter environmental degradation.
She was in the company of MCA Baragwi David Mathenge , Engineer Wangombe, area ACC, Chiefs, Assistant Chiefs, and staff from KAWI; where they distributed energy saving jikos in Gichugu sub-county.
Energy saving jikos are efficient as they provide higher energy content per unit mass, reduce GreenHouseGas emissions, and promote conservation of the environment.
“Every beneficiary of the energy saving jikos will plant a tree in a bid to support the 15B climate action plan by our president William Samoei Ruto.”
