The Ministry of Energy is drafting regulations that will specify the dates and terms for Kenya Electricity Generating Company (KenGen) to enter the power sales market. State-owned Kenya Power currently has a monopoly on power sales but the Energy Act 2019 provides for the opening up of the sector to competitors. Until now, KenGen has been restricted to electricity generation, alongside IPPs, but the company is keen to carry out direct sales, especially to industries near its plants.
