UEGCL is a body corporate, incorporated under the Companies’ Act (Cap 110), the Laws of Uganda and in conformity with the Electricity Act, 1999. The company was incorporated in March 2001 to operate and maintain the formerly UEB’s Generation Stations at Nalubaale and Kiira Power Stations, and to complete the construction of Kiira Power Station.

UEGCL’s mandate changed from operations and maintenance of the Electricity Generation Complex in Jinja (NPS and KPS) to concession monitoring when the complex was concessioned out to a concessionaire (ESKOM (U) Ltd) for 20 years effective April 2003. The change in mandate requires UEGCL to ensure that the complex is operated and maintained in accordance with the acceptable utility standards, and preservation of the facilities. With the completion of Kiira Power Station, UEGCL moved on to development of other large and small hydropower stations in various parts of the country.
