The Contract signing of the AFDB-lastmile connection

The first Phase of the project is targeted at benefitting approximately 314,200 non-commercial customers (households) resulting in electricity access to an additional 1.5 million Kenyans. Financed by the Government of Kenya and African Development Bank (AfDB) at the cost of KShs.13.5 Billion, this phase will involve extension of the low voltage network to reach households located within 600 meters of a transformer.

In this regard, Kenya Power has identified 5,320 transformers located in all the 47 counties for the implementation of the first phase of the project with actual connectivity beggining in September 2015. To benefit from this project, potential customers will be required to contribute a total of KShs.15,000.
