Expect your electricity bills to reduce by the end of this month.

In a statement issued to newsroom, KPLC has alluded to His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta speech during Jamhuri day celebration to cut power costs by 30 per cent 

“The reduction of the cost of electricity will be implemented in two tranches of 15 per cent each; with the first 15 per cent, which will be achieved through initial actions focusing on system and commercial losses being reflected in the December bills, and a further 15 per cent reduction in the first quarter of 2022.” Said Kenyatta.

In fulfilment of this pledge, Kenya Power wishes to inform its customers that the first 15 per cent reduction in the cost of power will be implemented on power consumption in the month of December, 2021. 

This will be reflected in power bills covering that period, which, as is normal practice, will be sent to consumers in the following month, in this case January 2022.
