Government to Declare 20K Penalty for All Kenyans Caught With these House Types

The Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) has drafted new rules that will change the way homes and businesses are built in the country. EPRA has suggested in the draft that has already been put out for public comment that all owners of new and old buildings should include plans for putting in solar water heaters.

If you don't do this, you will have to pay a fine of KES 20,000 or go to jail for six months. When the new rules go into effect, all Kenyans who own their own homes will have to follow them. It will be against the law to own a home without plans to install solar panels.

The Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority says that the new law will make it easier for people to use renewable energy sources in the country, which is in line with Vision 2030.

All new and existing residential and commercial buildings, such as hotels, restaurants, lodges, and laundries, are on the list of buildings to be attacked. The new order will have to be followed by hospitals and educational institutions like universities, colleges, and boarding schools.
