    Rains fail to reduce electricity prices

    05/08/2015

    The ongoing rains have failed to lower the cost of electricity with the fuel cost levy in power bills remaining unchanged for the third month in a row. Data from the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) indicates that the fuel adjustment levy, which is linked to the amount of power generated from expensive diesel, for post-paid bills to be settled next month will remain at Sh2.51 per kilowatt hour (kWh). The rains were expected to increase the share of hydropower and further cut that of expensive thermal power. But the injection of more hydropower to the grid was offset by reduced use of geothermal power plants. Kenya injected 280 megawatts of geothermal power between August and Decemberwhich has cut electricity costs by nearly a third since August, but households have seen little changes compared to 15 months ago due to the higher tariffs awarded toKenya Power last year.
