The Electricity Regulatory Authority (ERA) has issued a statement on the unexpected power blackout in the country this morning. It went ahead to post this message on its social media walls…
“The country this morning at 06:30hrs experienced a total power blackout occasioned by a fault originating from the Kenya power system.
We, however, wish to inform the country that full restoration of power supply was one within the morning. We apologize to our Esteemed Customers and the General Public for all inconveniences caused by the blackout.
In the same regard, we also wish to inform you that the earlier planned water Release Test procedures on the 380 MW Nalubaale-Kiira Hydropower Complex, the 250 MW Bujagali and 183 MW Isimba Power Generation Plants have been revised to ensure that there will be no load shedding as earlier communicated.
The said tests had been scheduled to take place from 9th to 11th May 2020 between 09:00hrs to 13:00hrs daily, as part of the efforts to test the response of the power plants to increased water discharge as we manage the rising levels of lake Victoria.
