Bu­sia to pro­vide en­ergy-sav­ing cook stoves

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

The Bu­sia ad­min­is­tra­tion will in­tro­duce en­ergy-sav­ing Im­proved cook stoves. “Two to three pieces of fire­wood can be used in the im­proved stoves, com­pared to the amount used with the [tra­di­tional] three stones,” En­ergy ex­ec­u­tive Bernard Yaite said on Wed­nes­day. The depart­ment will part­ner with Ger­man En­er­gis­ing De­vel­op­ment. “Res­i­dents should look on long-term ex­pen­di­ture and re­alise that mod­ern en­ergy is less costly,” Yaite said . GIZ EnDev clus­ter man­ager Ever­lyne Minikhu said the pro­gramme tar­gets to pro­vide clean mod­ern en­ergy. “Jiko kisasa and Roket stoves save up to 40 and 50 per cent of fuel, re­spec­tively,” she said.
