Changes in fuel prices imposed by the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority were cited by Kenya Power as the reason for the token cut
The power company explained to Kenyans on Saturday, December 10 that rising fuel costs were the reason for the price increase.
According to KPLC, the rise was also influenced by a number of economic issues that have evolved over time.
Part of the explanation for the price hike was that “the regulator has altered the fuel cost and inflation components of the bill, therefore the rise.”
A search conducted provided more evidence that corroborated the changes made by KPLC.
If you spent Ksh300 on tokens, for instance, you’d get 1.21 less tokens than you expected.
The increase from Ksh101.41 to Ksh104.91 in the fuel energy charge is to blame for the devaluation of the token.
Currency conversion fee increased from Ksh22.45 to Ksh30.52 as well.
But the EPRA charge and the adjustments for inflation went down.
Kenyans took to social media to express their dissatisfaction with the electricity utility company’s recent changes.
Some Internet users also expressed surprise about the increased cost of electricity in light of the recent decline in fuel costs.
Others asked why the electricity company in Kenya didn’t inform its customers of the upcoming changes.
