An International Energy Developer with Local Resources
Helios is a leading developer of small to mid-sized renewable energy projects in Small Hydro, Solar, and Wind segments. We partner with energy entrepreneurs across the country to develop small to medium-sized renewable energy projects (0.5-40MW). Our local partners are members of the communities we work in, who play an active role in project development and receive a share of project ownership in return.
We have a national network of projects under development with our local partners around the country. These energy entrepreneurs not only invest their hard-earned capital in the projects we jointly develop, but they also serve as the front line of Helios’ development team and work on a wide range of local development issues. At Helios we pair that local knowledge and connection with our vast energy development experience and expertise to drive projects to completion. In this way, Helios plays a major role in providing innovative energy solutions that make renewable energy feasible and economical at the community scale.
The Helios breakthrough approach to project development dramatically reduces the costs and risks associated with project development while increasing turnaround time and profitability. In the process, we are cultivating a nationwide network of local champions and arming them with the skill set to develop community scale energy projects at the local level.
The completion and subsequent financial close of projects under development in 2015 is the ultimate measure of the power of our development approach. In addition, our executive team’s leadership at the upper echelons of the renewable energy industry makes us a formidable player in Kenya’s vibrant renewable energy industry. That national presence, along with local resources complemented by our team of experienced employees, has given Helios a reputation that is second-to-none as a reliable and trustworthy developer. In short, we believe in what we’re doing, we do it well and, in turn, our stakeholders believe in us.
To help entrepreneurial individuals, companies and communities generate their own Clean Sustainable Renewable Power.

Our Corporate Citizenship
Meaningful relationships between business and society are at the heart of the Helios mission, which includes a shared goal of building a cleaner world for tomorrow. Corporate citizenship plays a central role in all aspects of our business – from the offices where we work to the staff we hire and the organizations we support.
The Planet has been good to us
To demonstrate our gratitude, we are committed to enriching the communities where we live and work. The nature of our business is to make a difference in the world by producing clean, renewable energy that can help power our lives in the most economical, environmentally and socially responsible ways possible. At Helios, we attribute much of our success to the opportunities we encounter in the confluence of economic, environmental, and social forces. Approaching these opportunities responsibly is the lifeblood of our corporate culture.
Our main objective is to create long-term value for our investors, employees, local partners, communities, partner organizations, and customers by installing clean, safe, and economic renewable energy plants that enrich our communities. We are committed to responsible environmental stewardship while striving to meet the increasing demand for clean power. Whether it’s buying renewable power to offset our corporate energy use, volunteer environmental work we perform in the community, or our sustainable office and business practices, we are constantly looking for ways to practice what we preach in ‘Going Green’.
At Helios, we work to build strong relationships with communities and organizations by respecting their concerns and supporting community development as we grow our business and corporate partnerships.
In the last few years the Helios team has volunteered in various community outreach projects, such as, planting trees, assisting children homes, package donated food for distribution, clean-up and landscape of city parks, just to name a few.
