How working on the Garissa Solar Plant has enabled Anthony Chesang grow his engineering skills

Anthony Chesang was trained as an Electrical Engineer at the University of Nairobi then went off to China and Egypt for two weeks each for further training. In China, he was able to learn about solar plants, solar PV, inverters, transformers, and control systems. Due to the fact that the solar plants in China are similar to the one here in Garissa, he has been able to transfer the knowledge and skills he acquired to enable him and his colleagues undertake the project and run the plant. Anthony adds that he has seen the production process of different types of Solar PVs and believes that in future they can help the country decide on which Solar PVs are suitable.
