A newly commissioned transformer in Garissa would help improve power supply as the load supply has increased by an additional 2.5 MVA.
Kenya Power has installed a 2.5MVA transformer at the Garissa substation to enhance its capacity and ensure enough supply to Garissa town and its environs.
The utility announced on Monday that the additional transformer was commissioned on 12 May 2019 and energised at 1720hrs. The undertaking was necessitated by an increase in demand within the area since commencement of the holy month of Ramadhan.
Garissa town and its environs has previously been served by a 7.5MVA transformer located at the Garissa substation. The additional load will ensure that residents continue to enjoy reliable power supply.
During the installation, Garissa town Member of Parliament Hon. Aden Duale paid a courtesy call at the substation and was impressed by efforts made by Kenya Power staff to ensure customers within the area have access to adequate and reliable power supply.
