Lower power tarrifs as Masinga Dam overflows

21 December 2011, 12:04

Nairobi - According to Business Daily reports, due to the recent heavy short rains, Masinga Dam, the main reservoir for the Seven Forks hydro-electric power complex, is now spilling water after passing the 1,056.5-metre level.

Kenya Electricity Generating company (KenGen) expects to produce enough power that will reduce the proportion of electricity from fuel-based sources to below 10 per cent, compared to more than 30 per cent in the middle of the year as all all but one dam at the River Tana cascade spilling.

Electricity charges in Kenya are among the highest in the region and have been blamed to the high cost of doing business.
