Renewable Energy (RE) is perceived to play an increasingly important role in fast-tracking accessibility to affordable electricity as an alternative to the nonconventional sources. The role of such REs in mitigating negative environmental effects has been given much emphasis. Developing isolated mini-grids has been one of the potential projects in scaling up RE to achieve rural electrification in line with Kenya’s energy solar PV-Diesel Hybrid minigrids systems are discussed. Further, the proposed Simulation Software policies. In this paper, the environmental effects of solar PV Minigrid, Diesel minigrid and the corresponding (Homer) and the Case Study (Turkana County) are discussed.
