KPLC Launches Last Mile Electricity Connection in Kibwezi West

In a significant move to enhance electricity access, the Kenya Power and Lighting Company (KPLC) has initiated the Last Mile Electricity connection in Kibwezi West.

With a total investment of Ksh. 102,230,418 million, the project aims to expand the reach of existing transformers to more households in the region.

Under this initiative, the connection fee for new customers will be structured into affordable installments, integrated into their monthly electricity bills. This innovative payment plan is designed to alleviate the financial burden on low-income households, enabling broader access to electricity.

“This phase is expected to benefit 1,238 households,” Mwengi Mutuse, MP Kibwezi West in a Facebook post added.

“I’m following up to ensure the contractors come to the site and implement these projects for the benefit of our people.” He added.

Mutuse further highlighted the ongoing efforts and plans under the Government of Kenya and development partners funding through the Rural Electrification and Renewable Energy Corporation (REREC).

“The ultimate goal is to achieve over 80 percent electricity coverage in the next few years, marking a significant stride towards improving the quality of life in Kibwezi West,” he added.
