Kenyans can now enjoy lower electricity bills due to April pricing reductions.

Kenya Power said in a statement on Monday that the decline was caused by the strengthening of the Kenya Shilling and lower fuel prices for electricity production.

"We are happy to note that the reduction has given reprieve to our customers and we are optimistic that the prevailing macro-economic environment and the improved hydrology, which enables us to dispatch less thermal power, will sustain the benefit to our customers," said Kenya Power's Managing Director & CEO, Dr. (Eng.) Joseph Siror. 

Clients in the Domestic Customer 1 (DC1) tariff band who use fewer than thirty units monthly will pay Ksh.629 instead of Ksh.729 for comparable units in March 2024, a 13.7 percent reduction.

Consumers who use 31–100 units on average under the Domestic Customer 2 (DC2) tariff will now pay Ksh.1,574 instead of Ksh.1,773 in March 2024, an 11.2% decrease.

Similarly, customers who exceed 100 units per month and fall under the Domestic Customer 3 (DC3) tariff band will see their monthly payment decrease by 9.7% from Ksh.4,127 to Ksh.3,728.

In February, there was another significant decrease in electricity prices, with a Ksh.3.44 per unit drop for all customers.
