Even this December ,Lake Turkana Wind will be curtailed(it has reached its annual threshold) so KenGen Hydros and Geothermals will run full capacity untill year end.

But why would it be curtailed if the electricity is half price on threshold being exceeded?

The reason why Lake Turkana Wind was given prominence in dispatch is because they have deemed generation contract...KPLC has to dispatch them upto the threhhold or pay them.....after the threshold is reached per year, no firm obligation to pay them...What has been happening is that KenGen plants(hydros and geothermal) have been curtailed to favour LTWP dispatch....despite a marginal costs of Geothermals and hydros being almost 2.5 shillings per kWh...LTWP is tariff is 11 shillings per kWh....even if the tariff is half for LTWP, its still expensive than KenGen Geothermals and Hydros....Olkaria IV and Olkaria I has been venting steam

That grand Jubilee plans and tall tales of industrialization in 5-10 years have fallen flat.

Flat. By the way they have really messed up the energy sector with numerous supply side costs that's even remotely impossible to reduce cost of electricity by even a cent/kwh in the coming 5 years
