Relief for Kenyan households as ERC reduces power tariffs

Households consuming a maximum of 100 kilowatt-hour (kWh) will pay reduced charges of Sh10 per unit as the energy sector regulator on Wednesday increased the lifeline (subsidy) threshold to 100 units, from the 10 units announced in July.

This, however, does not include variable pass-through charges such as 16 per cent valued added tax (VAT), fuel cost charge, forex charge and inflation.

The review, which takes effect Thursday (November 1), will also see small businesses consuming up to 100 units pay a reduced charge of Sh10 per unit from Sh15.60.
