Phase I of the project is expected to provide 100 MW. The Government of Kenya (GoK) is funding the construction of access roads and community engagement initiatives while KfW has given GDC a concessional loan for the drilling of geothermal wells and installing a pipeline to supply water for drilling.

GDC has also developed a scope of collaboration with the Baringo County Government for GDC to provide specialized training in geothermal resource development for youth in the area.
