A rose farm that is an exemplory model of sustainable development
In the middle of a rose farm, a solar power plant was created at Red Land Roses in Riuru, Kenya.
“The installation of this photovoltaic self-consumption system following a hybrid process that interfaces with the grid and diesel generators has allowed us to save 30% on our electricity bill. But, that isn’t the only benefit. Being our own electricity producer has allowed us to stabilize a part of our supply and to gain control over our energy costs in the long term.” Isabelle and Aldric Spindler, owners of the Red Land Roses farm, Ruiru, Kenya.
Having always been sensitive to environmental issues, the rose farm opted for a sustainable model of horticulture with the installation of a water recycling system and they knew the ecological interest in producing low-carbon electricity on their site.
