Uganda eyes wind power for rural areas amid acute power crisis

Following a persistent power crisis due to declining water levels of Lake Victoria, the Ugandan government has given a go ahead to a wind power scheme.

Bergey Wind Power, a U.S. based firm and partner of Winafrique Kenya and Win afriqueUganda, will generate power using wind turbines. The power will be mainly supplied to rural areas that are not covered by the national grid.

The President of Bergey Wind Power, Michael Bergey was quoted by Sunday Monitor as saying the installation of the wind turbines would commence within six months.

The team also planned to light up Kampala-Entebbe road within two weeks to show that wind power can be a solution to the prevailing power crisis.
