Press Release (ePRNews.com) - DAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania - Aug 01, 2016 - Ruaha River Power Company Limited announced today that the Company has changed its name to “Ruaha Energy.” The name change reflects the Company’s expanding renewable energy strategy which, in addition to planned run-of-river hydropower facilities, now also includes solar photovoltaic and biomass projects.
The Company’s President, Pete Hemingway, remarked, “The new name – Ruaha Energy – emphasizes our expanding renewable energy portfolio, which is being launched to deliver clean, sustainable electricity to villages and larger rural communities in Tanzania’s underserved rural markets.”
