A major blow has landed on Kenya Power as KeGen gets ready to supply electricity to consumers directly. This is going to put an end to the monopoly of Kenya Power and Lighting Company over Kengen for more than 100 years where they have been dominating the entire market.

Rebecca Miano the KenGen CEO explained that they have only been awaiting the new regulations under the Energy Act 2019 to be finalized so that they can go ahead and officially start selling power to large larger consumers.

"The Energy Act 2019 has provision for us to sell power directly mostly to large consumers. The only thing left is finalisation of the regulations and how the infrastructure will be developed. We believe that when the new laws are ready, the possibility (to sell electricity) will be there,” said Rebecca.
