280,000 households targeted in 4th phase of Last Mile connectivity – Kenya Power
An additional 280, 473 households are projected to benefit from the fourth phase of the Last Mile Connectivity Programme (LMCP) spearheaded by the Kenya Power Company.
The lighting company has commenced preparations inviting bids from turnkey contractors who will undertake the electrification project in 32 targeted counties at a cost of KES 26.8 billion.
The fourth phase of the LMCP project is set to kick off in November 2023 and will entail the installation of 940 new transformers, maximisation of 3735 existing transformers and construction of associated power lines in the identified counties.
It will be fully funded by the Agence Française de Développement (AFD), the European Union (EU) and the European Investment Bank (EIB).
The LMCP project started in 2015 with the goal of providing affordable connections in rural and peri-urban areas as well as accelerating universal electricity access to drive social and economic growth.
Over one million households have so far been connected to electricity through the first three phases of the programme which were funded by the government, the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the World Bank.
Kenya Power reports that through those first three phases, over 75% of the population have electricity access up from 29% in 2012.
A project Impact Evaluation done by AfDB also shows an increase of 83%.
