Electricity token charges set to increase this month.
Tough times for Kenyans as Electricity token charges set to shoot this month again.
This move comes after the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) increased the fuel and foreign exchange details comprised in the power bill.
EPRA stated,”The notice is given that all prices for related electrical energy specified in Part II (the Schedule of Tariffs 2018) will be liable to a fuel energy cost charge of plus 709 Kenya cents per kilowatt hour (kWh) for all meter readings to be taken in October 2022.”
Kenyans have raised compaints on the depletion of tokens.
One netizen said,”Hello Kenya Power, your tokens are like volatile liquids. One moment you have them and the next, they’re gone. They’re depleting even when all electrical appliances are off. What are you doing.”
“For a Ksh100, I am getting 3.9 units. During (former president) Uhuru’s time I would get 5.4 units but what shall we say,” another Netizen complained.
