In Kwendin, Nimba County, 1000KW Biomass Energy Plant uses wood chips, coconut and palm kernel shells to produce affordable energy for over 200 households and more than 2,500 residents.
The Plant was also planned to supply power to schools, churches and the business community. This plant had been set up as a pilot project financed by USAID. The Rural and Renewable Energy Agency (RREA) is involved in the supervision. A community cooperative operates and manages generation and supply of electricity.
