The Baringo-Silali Block has an estimated potential of 3,000MW which will be developed in phases. The first phase will develop 300MW; 100MW from Paka, 100MW from Korosi and 100MW from Silali with funding from the Government of Kenya and KfW. Detailed surface studies were completed in early 2013 and an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) License obtained from NEMA. A community engagement framework has been established and the community has given GDC land access rights.

The Government of Kenya (GoK) is funding the construction of access roads and community engagement initiatives while KfW has given GDC a concessional loan of Euros 80 Million or approximately. Ksh8 billion for the drilling of 15-20 geothermal wells, undertaking several consultancies and installing a water pipeline to supply water for drilling.

So far, GDC has completed an access road, over 100km, to open up the Baringo-Silali area for drilling. Drilling commenced in December 2018.
