Description

The Solar carport installation at Garden City Mall provides 1.2M kWh of clean electricity to serve the mall’s shops, grocery stores, and movie theatre each year.

As a result of choosing solar power and investing in other energy and water efficiency initiatives, Garden City was awarded Kenya’s first LEED Gold building certification.

It is the largest solar carport in Africa and the largest rooftop solar project in East Africa. It produces sufficient electricity to power over 550 urban homes in Nairobi and will offset around 18,750 tonnes of carbon over the lifetime of the system.
