Wheeling of Electricy

Wheeling is the term used to describe the free movement of electricity along interconnected transmission lines. Technology is available today to transport or "wheel" electricity generated in one part of the country to a customer in another part of the country or even electricity generated in one country to a customer in another country.

KETRACO will facilitate open access to electricity generated within Kenya as well as electricity generated in any country connected to the national grid through regional inter connectors, in exchange for a wheeling charge that will be adequate to cover the company’s operations and maintenance costs.
