Last Mile Electricity Connectivity 2nd phase Signing

The proposed Last Mile Connectivity Project (LMCP) aims to optimize the use of selected Kenya Power and Lighting Company’s (KPLC) 45 000 distribution transformers located in the country’s 47 districts, through the extension of the low voltage network. It focuses on supporting the Kenyan government’s initiatives aimed at improving access to electricity for the Kenyans, especially the low income groups. The GoK (Government of Kenya) is indeed committed to increase the populations’ access to electricity from 53% in 2016 to 70% in 2017 and 100% in 2020. This support, which is part of this initiative’s Phase II, aims to connect a minimum of about 285 000 individual subscribers and 15 000 commercial subscribers located within a 600-m radius around an existing transformer. To do so, the project entails: (i) the supply of distribution equipment to connect 300,000 new subscribers; (ii) the construction of low voltage distribution lines (LV); iii) the supervision and management; and (iv) capacity building activities in targeted areas of expertise
