Cost of power tokens: Cost of power for domestic and Small Commercial Consumer has been reduced by Sh. 2 and Sh. 5 Kilowatts per hour respectively.

Energy Regulatory Commission Director General Pavel Oimeke on Wednesday said the charge for domestic consumers will now retail at Sh. 10/KWh down from Sh. 12KWh.

In the electricity tariff structure, only households using up less than 10kWh had been granted a discounted charge of Sh. 12 per unit, with those consuming higher electricity levied Sh. 15.80 per kWh.

The new structure will see homes incur a bill of Sh. 1,517 in November, 31.63 per cent less than Sh. 2,219 in October if VAT and adjustable costs were to remain constant.

The charges are for consumers who spend 99 units and below within a specific period of time.

Charges for 100 units and above have been maintained hence customer in this category will not have any changes in their current bill.

This means that for every 99 units bought, consumers will be able to save slightly above Sh. 400.

Kenyans who bought tokens today reported that they were given 3.32 units at Sh. 50.

A purchase of tokens for Sh. 500 had 33.15 units which is an increase from the 22.62 units that consumers would previously receive for an equal amount cash.

For Sh. 1,000 consumers will now receive 66.31 units an increase from the 45.1 units receivable in October.
