The government of Kenya has received a credit from the International Development Association (IDA) and grants under Scaling Up Renewable Energy in low income countries under the Strategic Climate Fund Grant towards the cost of Kenya Electricity Modernisation Project (KEMP).

It is intended that part of the proceeds of this credit and SREP grants will be applied to eligible payments under the contract for design, supply and installation of solar PV power generation plants (SPGP) with associated power distribution network (PDN) in selected un-electrified areas in Kenya.
