Biography

John Magiro is the founder and director of Magiro Hydro Electricity Limited (MHEL), which has developed an innovative small scale 30 kW hydropower plant in Mihuti Village, which is solely composed of locally available standard engines, recycled bicycle parts and generates electricity from a local waterfall.

As MHEL avoids the common connection charges of electricity suppliers and offers flexible pricing for its electricity supply, it offers affordable rates for both private households and local businesses, charging as low as USD 1 per month.
