The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

CYN­THIA ILAKO / Liq­uid Tele­com­sowned East African Data Cen­tre yes­ter­day said it hopes the Sh500 mil­lion Kenya Power sub­sta­tion at its premises will help it re­duce diesel fuel from 15 to three per cent. The telco ex­pects to source 97 per cent of its power from Kenya Power’s green en­ergy. “For EADC, the move to se­cure 97 per cent avail­abil­ity of Kenya Power’s unusu­ally green elec­tric­ity has now po­si­tioned the data cen­tre as an ex­cep­tion­ally sus­tain­able op­tion, of­fer­ing it a com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tage over data cen­tres else­where in Africa,” East African Data Cen­tre chief ex­ec­u­tive Dan Kwacha said.
