How are energy costs calculated (KPLC Kenya Power)

Fixed Charge: This is a cost that goes towards making the service available, including installation and maintenance of poles, power lines and equipment, and customer care.

Fuel Index Charge: This is the added cost or rebates to the consumers as a result of fluctuations in world prices as well as fluctuations in the quantity of oil consumed by electricity generation. The fuel cost charge lags one month behind the actual price of the fuel. This money is collected by Kenya Power and all of it is passed on directly to electricity generation companies, who in turn pay fuel suppliers.

Forex Charge: The foreign exchange component is related to the fluctuation of hard currencies against the Kenya Shilling for expenditure related to the power sector e.g. projects loan repayments.
