Project General Description

The Last Mile Connectivity Project (LCMP) aims to support the Government’s initiatives of ensuring increased electricity access to Kenyans, particularly among the low income groups. The existing distribution transformers shall be exploited to the maximum through extension of the low voltage network to reach households located in the vicinity of these transformers.

Project Objectives

The proposed project includes the following objectives: (i) construction of the distribution system, which entails 11,723 meters of low voltage distribution lines; (ii) installation of equipment for the connection of 250,809 households and 27,868 commercial customers; (iii) project supervision and management and (iv) capacity building in targeted areas of expertise. The project is proposed to be divided into four Lots or Contracts.

Beneficiaries

The direct beneficiaries of the project will be the population connected to the distribution system. The project will foster an increase in economic activity (industrial, services, agricultural, commercial) and social wellbeing (households and social institutions).
