Bad News to Kenyans as Electricity Charges are Increased

The Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) has announced increased charges that will affect consumers' usage of electricity in the country.

This is bad news to Kenyans who are already going through a difficult economic time because of the increased taxation that has affected several factors of production in the economy.

According to EPRA, the increment has been occassioned by the fact that the Fuel charges have been increased affecting the oil that they use in the thermal power production in the country.

“Notice is given that all prices for the electrical energy…will be liable to a fuel energy cost charge of plus 397 Kenya cents per kWh for all meter readings to be taken in October, 2021,” said Epra in the gazette notice.

It said power consumed over the same month would be liable to a “foreign exchange fluctuation adjustment of plus 103.92 cents per kWh”.

It also comes at a time when the Cabinet Secretary in charge of the Ministry of Energy as we as that of the Petroleum have refused to appear before Parliament to answer questions related to the riding cost of petroleum products in the country.
