Public Participation on the Draft Mini-grid Regulations 2021

Call for Comments on the Draft Mini-grid Regulations

To streamline the mini-grid sector, EPRA, together with industry stakeholders, has developed the Draft (Mini-grid) Regulations, 2021 alongside the associated Regulatory Impact Statement and technical guidelines.

The regulations provide a framework for mini-grid tariff approval, licensing requirements, guidelines for operations, performance and reporting requirements.

Stakeholders are requested to review the aforementioned documents and provide feedback that will be considered for incorporation in the regulations that will be Gazetted.

Comments on the draft regulations can be sent via email to or by memoranda clearly marked “PUBLIC COMMENTS ON DRAFT MINI-GRID REGULATIONS “and be delivered to the Authority’s head office or satellite offices on or before Thursday, 8th July 2021.

Further, EPRA will hold public participation workshops in Garissa, Nairobi, Mombasa and Lodwar in July. More information about the workshops is available on the attached public notice.
