The Kenya Power and Lighting Company also does electricity connections to the customers who have not yet received electricity. Kenya Power has also been doing repairing power supply lines that have been damaged or sabotaged.
A good example is when power transformers are sabotaged. This results in huge outages which affect the residents of a given area.

KenGen is also a public corporation that owns all the power-generating assets in the country. The company owns major Hydroelectric power plants, Geothermal power plants as well as wind energy generating power plants.
