Kenya Power is advising consumers who are currently low on units to purchase tokens before midnight on Wednesday as the system will be shut down fo r adjustments to match the new charges.

In a statement on Wednesday evening, the power supplier said the shutdown will last for 14 hours and the system will be up and running at 2 pm on Thursday.

"Our customers on the prepaid system will not be able to vend for electricity tokens during the shutdown," the company said.

The notice came hours after the Energy Regulatory Authority reduced power tariffs for domestic and small commercial consumers by Sh2 and Sh5 respectively.

ERC Director General Pavel Oimeke said domestic consumers will from November 1 pay Sh10/Kwh down from Sh12 while small commercial consumers would pay Sh10 down from Sh15/Kwh.

The new charges, he said, apply on consumption below 100 units. Charges on consumption of 100 kilowatts and above remain unchanged.
