Baraka Roses powered by solar panels

Baraka Roses Farm, originally a Kenyan company, was established in 2011. The farm is located in Nyandarua 2250 meters above sea level, the ideal height for growing quality roses. The location is blessed with a special micro climate and the perfect cultivation soil. The farm currently has 30 hectares in production.

The operation originated from a family with farming experience dating back to the 1960s, which included wheat, forestry, dairy products and the famous Muchoki Coffee, one of the oldest coffee plantations in East Africa. Cultivation of roses is the latest addition to the family business.

Bosman Van Zaal has installed 440 solar panels with a capacity of 110 kWp. One unique characteristic is the dump-load control. Dump-load control limits the energy production of the PV panels when more energy is generated than is required by the consumers. This avoids problems with the public grid or steam generator.
