Electric current as an energy source predates back to the prehistoric era whereby a streak of lightning colliding with a tree branch led to the accidental discovery of fire capable of being used as sources of both heat and light.
Over the years, knowledge has enabled mankind to tap into this energy through conversion of its various forms.
In Kenya for instance, Kengen is regarded as East africas largest energy producer relying on geothermal, hydro, thermal and wind energy in the generation of electricity which is later distributed through KPLC for industrial or household consumption.
However, in-order to access this electricity, one needs to be subscribed to some form of payment system which includes either prepaid (payment before use) and postpaid (payment after use).
Furthermore, for postpaid, a bill is sent to the consumer showing the amount of consumption while for prepaid, one needs to purchase tokens either directly from KPLC or through authorized 3rd parties.
Below we look at some of the android apps that allow the option of purchasing KPLC tokens.
