The largest solar carport will be opened here in Kenya by Solarcentury at the newest large mall in Kenya called Garden City Mall. This will cut the carbon emissions by around 745 tonnes annually.
Dual mode technology will be used. This means that solar energy will be used during the day and less power from the grid. Also when the grid is down the building wont need to use expensive diesel fuel as power back up. This reduces electricity expenses to the tenants of Garden City Mall.
Around 1256MWh will be generated every year from around 3,300 solar panels on the top most storey of the car park.
