Wind, solar cut Sh6bn of Kenya Power diesel uptake

The value of diesel-generated electricity that Kenya Power sold to consumers between July and December last year dropped by Sh6 billion, even as users’ power bills remained unchanged.

Half-year results released by Kenya Power last week showed that only 10 percent of the electricity that was sold to customers came from expensive diesel plants.

This helped the majority State-owned power firm to cut fuel costs by 44 percent to Sh6.88 billion from the comparative July to December 2017 cost of Sh12.29 billion.
