Kenya Power to issue 3m energy saving bulbs
Kenya power plans to distribute 3 million energy saving bulbs to the public before the year ends.
The development comes after the government secured funds from the French Development Agency (AFD) to aid in the procurement process.
The Sh1 billion funds received will be used to procure bulbs for low income earners.
Acting chief manager for commercial services engineer Joshua Mutua said that the bulbs are set to replace incandescent bulbs in low income households across the country and assist in reducing power consumption during peak periods.
He spoke during the disposal of 1.25 million incandescent bulbs which were replaced in 2010.
