Developers of Kenya’s largest mixed-use development, Tatu City will in a fortnight apply for power generation licence with the Electricity Regulatory Commission (ERC).

Tatu City Power Company will on November 20 seek the licence if no individual, company or association objects to the request. The firm plans to supply the power to consumers but has not publicly disclosed the generation method or cost.

The 5,000-acre Kiambu County proposed city has attracted scores of industrial entities to its 425-acre light industrial park special economic zone.
Country head Nick Langford said the project will not hurt any business, environment or individual within the facility.
