Kenya: Sh3 Billion Set Aside for Power

About 330,000 customers will benefit from a five year Sh3.3 billion project that will avail credit to clients who require financing for electricity connection.

In the published annual report for 2013, Kenya Power acting managing director and CEO Ben Chumo said 44,000 customers have already benefited from a Sh450 million revolving fund pilot loan facility that was supported by French Development Agency.

"Kenya Power also implements some rural electrification projects on behalf of the government. In the year under review, Kenya Power completed 61 rural projects valued at Sh228 million and is also in the process of implementing 51 additional schemes at a cost of Sh1.1 billion under this programme", Chumo said.
