icolo.io contributes to Kenya’s renewable energy grid with new Hybrid Solar System at its Data Centres

Dear Listers

This might be of interest.

Kenya’s energy grid is more than 75% renewable, making it one of the most
renewable grids in the World and icolo.io continues its commitment to the
sustainability of our industry with the implementation of Solar Energy
systems at our Nairobi and Mombasa Data Centres. The 400kW Solar Systems at
NBO1 and MBA1 will support part of the power needs of each Data Centre
which can deliver 825KW and 675kW of customer power (IT Load) respectively,
thereby helping to manage our energy costs and minimize our carbon footprint.
This forms part of the company’s sustainable Green Energy goals being
implemented across all its campuses in Nairobi and Mombasa.

Data Centers are energy-intensive infrastructure projects, and these
systems help tap into clean renewable energy, these installations are
equivalent to planting back 100 trees per week and reduces the data center
3,200 Kgs of CO2 emissions per week. “One of our greatest natural resources
in Africa is the Sun and our investment in solar is a strategic part of our
global vision to reduce the harmful effects of global warming and conserve
the environment as we continue to scale our business” says Ranjith
Cherickel, CEO of icolo.io.
