Kenya Energy Expansion


This project planned to scale up the Kenya Power and Lighting Company's model of delivering electricity connections in to the poor in urban and peri-urban areas in Nairobi through use of a small, targeted, subsidy.

The estimated US$50 subsidy per household would be disbursed based on the "output" of connecting a household to the national grid infrastructure. The subsidy was to be used only in informal settlements, initially Kibera, but with the potential to expand into other settlements.
