2. An announcement was made on 10 July 2020 for the exemption of 75 units from the electricity bills of consumption from 1 July to 15 July when COVID-19 preventive measures were increased.
3. An additional exemption (free of charge) of 75 units will be deducted from the electricity bill from 16-7-2020 to 31-7-2020 as COVID-19 preventive measures were extended. Thus, a total of 150 units from domestic consumption between the dates of 1 July and 31 July 2020 will get exemption (free of charge) from the electricity bill.

5. All relevant households that have consumed from 1 to 150 units of electricity will have their meter bill and service fees exempted (free of charge) while consumption of 151 units and above will have K11,550 for 150 units deducted from the total meter bill.
6. Domestic consumption of 151 units and above will have to make payments according to the different levels of consumption rate. Local civil society organizations in the NGO category are the only type of non-domestic consumers that will have the exemption applied to them.
