The electricity infrastructure is believed to support investments and industrial and economic development along the transmission line. With the big hydro-power development in Ethiopia this provides a certain electricity market stability and supply. At the same time it creates a certain competitive element in the development of national power projects. The main direction of electricity is expected to be from Ethiopia to Kenya.
The transmission line will cross from Ethiopia into Kenya approximately 90 km West of Moyale town and traverses Marsabit, Samburu, Isiolo, Laikipia, Nyandarua and Nakuru.
The project has been funded by the African Development Bank (AfDB) jointly with the French Development Agency (AFD), the World Bank and the Government of Kenya.
