Kenya Electricity Generating Company Limited (KenGen) generates and sells electricity in Kenya and for consumption in East Africa sub-regions. Electricity is generated through hydro, thermal, geothermal and wind power generation plants with a combined installed capacity in excess of 1 600 megawatts. KenGen was incorporated in 1954 under the Companies Act as Kenya Power Company (KPC) to construct the transmission line between Nairobi and Tororo in Uganda, as well as develop geothermal and other power generating facilities in the two countries. KPC sold electricity in bulk at cost to Kenya Power under a management contract. Following energy sectoral reforms in 1996, the management of KPC was separated from Kenya Power and a new enterprise was established called KenGen. The power utility owns 31 power-generating plants and operates in a liberalised power generation environment. Its head office is in Nairobi, Kenya.
