KPLC launches maintenance programme as electricity shutdown drops by 40 per cent

Kenya power has launched a live line maintenance programme set to reduce planned electricity shut downs.

The power company has flagged off 32 trucks to Kenya power operational regions across the counties which are meant to improve revenue generation and power supply stability.

“The company is focused on the provision of quality power supply by strengthening the electricity network and streamlining internal process to improve customer experience and stakeholder confidence.” Said Kenya Power acting MD and CEO Jared Othieno.

KPLC stated that number of planned shutdowns have reduced by approximately 40 per cent.

“We believe that improving the reliability of power supply to our customers is crucial in accelerating the development and growth of our country,”said Othieno.

144 live line maintenance personnel have been trained through the World Bank Funding during the pilot phase.
