Near the former capital of Mombasa, the eco-village of Hacienda is on track to be Kenya’s first self-sustaining city. Although some parts are still under construction, this planned development is utilizing eco-technology enabling residents to live in sustainable comfort while preserving the environment for future generations. All of Hacienda’s energy is sourced from solar or wind, and rainwater is collected for residential use.
Hacienda’s futuristic development has a school, and over 10,000 trees have been planted to provide fresh air. Residents also do their part by helping with construction, and utilizing bike paths through out the city.
