Brookside pushes for green en­ergy use across op­er­a­tions

The Star (Kenya) - - News -

CYN­THIA ILAKO/ Brookside Dairy is go­ing green after in­stalling so­lar pow­ered wa­ter heat­ing sys­tems at its milk cool­ing sta­tions to save en­ergy. The sys­tems cur­rently run­ning in Ki­tale and Sotik raw milk bulk sta­tions and at the Sa­ba­tia cool­ing cen­tre in El­dama Ravine will even­tu­ally be adopted across the dairy com­pany’s 55 cool­ing sta­tions, the com­pany said in a state­ment.

“We are keen to ra­tio­nalise our power costs through adop­tion of clean en­ergy sys­tems in all spheres of our op­er­a­tions,” said Brookside di­rec­tor of milk pro­cure­ment, John Gethi. The milk pro­ces­sor is also ad­vo­cat­ing for the adop­tion of bio­gas by its 145,000 con­tracted farm­ers in the coun­try.
