Why is it that in Kenya, only KenGen+KPLC have the mandate to produce and distribute electricity?
They sell their power at higher tariffs than Kengen because most of them are in Thermal .
Tsavo Power Mombasa(Diesel)
Rabai Power Rabai(Diesel)
Triumph Power and Thika Power(Heavy Fuel Oil)
We do have a few like Lake Turkana Wind and OrPower4 which runs Olkaria 3 which are not in Thermal.AGIL is also investing in Geothermal.Despite this private entities ask for higher feed in tariffs than Kengen.
70% of our energy is produced by Kengen.
