Kenya power has commenced preparations to implement the fourth phase of the Last Mile connectivity programme(LMCP) which will benefit an additional 280,473 Kenyan households.
The company has invited bids for turnkey contractors who will undertake the electrification project in 32 targeted counties at a total cost of Kshs. 26.8 billion.
The fourth phase of the project will entail the installation of 940 new transformers, maximisation of 3,735 existing transformers and construction of associated power lines in the identified counties.
The project is set to commence in November this year. It will be fully funded by the Agence Francaise de Developpement(AFD). the European Union(EU), and the European Investment Bank(EIB).
The LMCP is a Government flagship project that was initiated in 2015 with the aim of providing affordable connection in rural and peri-urban areas and accelerating universal electricity access to drive social economic growth in line with the country’s 2030 development agenda. The program is also aligned with the sustainable development goal(SDG) No. 7 which aims at providing access to clean and affordable energy to all.
