How to Report Power Outage to KPLC Via SMS

Many businesses in Kenya have embraced social media as a way of connecting to their customers as well as attending to their queries and questions. KPLC is one such company. We all know that you can report power outage through calling, via Twitter or even facebook. But did you know that you can do the same by  simply texting?

How to Report Power Outage to KPLC Via SMS

All you need to do is send Stima#AccountNo#Description of Outage to 95551.

e.g. Stima#123456789#No power since yesterday.

You will receive a message with a reference number under which your complaint has been booked. This makes it easier for you to follow up on the progress of your case.

This service comes in handy when you do not have data bundles to contact them via social media accounts or when you just don’t want to spend your hard earned cash calling their numbers.

There’s no reason why you should stay in darkness. Have a bright day.

  4. It's sad tha a big company like Kenya power is using non functioning website.

  5. It is really unfortunate that you don't respond to any comments. We have a transformer at Darajambili, Maseno which switches off at the slightest whiff of rain. This is after our earlier transformer exploded and replaced. However, the alleged new transformer has not lived to our expectations.It goes off at any time especially during this rainy period while other nearby transformers are working. Can you tell exactly what is wrong. Or is it overloaded?

    Kenya power used to be a good company long time ago. But with the emergence of the so called prepaid meter Kenya power deliberately abandoned their core duties of ensuring swift responses on the emergencies like power outages, fallen poles, discontinued cables e.t.c. i do get amazed to see some of the so called power technicians some of whom have never attended any electrical class not even the lowest level of a youth polytechnic while those who are actually qualified to do those jobs are just languishing in the juakali. This has been the fact about a myriad of frequent power outages.
