EPRA Issues New Directive On KPLC Power Usage

According to the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (Epra), it has located residences and establishments that are now producing more than one Megawatt (MW) of power for sale without permits.

According to EPRA Director-General Daniel Kiptoo, a rise in developer-business agreements has dramatically increased the number of people who are producing more than one MW of power unlawfully.

Mr. Kiptoo told Business Daily, "I specifically single out the rise in commercial agreements between developers and commercial clients where proponents are not complying with the law."

According to Section 117, residences and enterprises that generate more than one MW of electricity for their ur for must get licenses from Epra.

EPRA marketers export more fuel despite a shortfall, EPRA reduces imports. In a Toe, their reliance on Kenya Power and operational costs, the bulk of enterprises and real estate players are building homes with internal power generation systems.

Prior toBeforeariff drop that reduced electricity costs and relieved pressure on individuals and businesses in January of last year, the cost of power had skyrocketed to extremely high levels in recent years.

Since the government no longer supports the 15% reduction, which is expected to further encourage illicit electricity production, the drop has been reversed, and electricity prices are expected to increase starting this month.
