KPLC has announced a long electricity outage tomorrow. The power company has made this announcement on Twitter. Those who live in the areas listed should be prepared in advance for the blackout.
The Kenya Power and Lighting Company do issue periodic notices the company has scheduled an electricity interruption. The Kenya Power and Lighting Company do shut down the supply of electricity as per rule 27 of the Electric Power Rules.
The KPLC do occasionally carry out maintenance as well as upgrading of the power supply systems in Kenya.
As a result of this, Kenya Power cuts the power supply for quite many hours hence leading to a very long power outage. Another thing is, the Kenya Power usually does the installation of electricity to new customers as well as extending the connectivity of power to the areas that still have not been connected to the national grid.
KPLC has dominated the Kenyan economy in terms of power supply. Lately, Kenyans have complained of poor services provided by Kenya Power, however, the company has promised to start a project which will see those who have no access to electricity get solar power. This will be great news to Kenyans.
However, during blackouts, many Kenyans suffer as a result of electricity. Those who operate businesses are forced to close or look for other sources of energy which is usually expensive. It is therefore important to know areas that will face a long electricity outage tomorrow, Wednesday 09.12.2020.
