A new working paper by CEGA affiliates finds that despite massive investments in grid infrastructure in Western Kenya, rural electrification rates remain low—5% for households and 22% for businesses—even for structures located within reach of the existing grid. The key feature of this research is a novel dataset of over 20,000 geo-coded structures, which clearly illustrate the extent to which rural Kenyans are living "under grid."
