Kenya’s power imports from Uganda hit Sh1 billion in Q1

Kenya’s payment to Uganda for electricity imports dropped by Sh550 million in the first three months of the year on increased local generation.

Kenya bought 48.69 million kilowatt hours (kWh) from Uganda in quarter one at Sh1.02 billion, down from 75. 09 million kWh worth Sh1.56 billion in a similar period a year earlier.

This eased the pain of a higher tariffs pact the two countries inked in 2014 that puts the cross-border purchase of electricity at Sh21 per kilowatt hour (kWh), up from between Sh8 and Sh10.
