There are several ways that the cost of electricity in Kenya can be lowered:
Increase renewable energy generation: Kenya has made significant progress in developing renewable energy sources such as geothermal, wind, and solar. Increasing the share of renewable energy in the energy mix can help to reduce the cost of electricity and promote sustainable development.
Promote energy efficiency: Energy efficiency measures such as the use of energy-efficient appliances, LED lighting, and building insulation can help to reduce energy consumption and lower electricity bills.
Improve transmission and distribution infrastructure: Upgrading and modernizing the transmission and distribution infrastructure can help to reduce transmission losses and improve the efficiency of the energy system, which can lead to lower electricity costs.
Encourage competition in the electricity sector: Promoting competition in the electricity sector by allowing independent power producers and encouraging private sector investment can help to lower the cost of electricity and improve service quality.
Implement demand-side management measures: Demand-side management measures such as time-of-use tariffs, smart meters, and demand response programs can help to reduce peak demand and lower the overall cost of electricity.
These measures require significant investments, policy changes, and stakeholder involvement, but they can help to reduce the cost of electricity in Kenya and promote sustainable development.
