Kenya Electricity Generating Company PLC (KenGen) is the leading electric power generating company in East Africa. KenGen was incorporated in 1954 under the Kenyan Companies Act as Kenya Power Company (KPC), with the mandate to generate electricity through the development, management, and operation of power plants. The shareholders of the Company later contracted East Africa Power & Lighting Company (EAP&L) to manage KPC. In 1983, EAP&L changed to Kenya Power & Lighting Company.
KenGen’s strategy is to deliver affordable clean energy by creating value for shareholders while expanding energy sources and revenue streams. The company’s installed generation capacity mix includes Hydro (825.69 MW), Geothermal (713.13 MW), Thermal (253.5MW), and Wind (25.5MW).
