Afghanistan’s state-run power company neglected to mention on Tuesday that the Taliban, which seized control of Afghanistan’s government on August 15, 2021, has failed to pay bills owed to its electricity suppliers, including those in Uzbekistan, since coming to power.

Not a high priority for the new folks in power.
Given the slap-dash nature and good-enough mindset amongst many there, purchasing a bunch of portable Honda generators and paying a lacky to constantly monitor and fill its gas level is a perfectly acceptable solution.

They didn't have electricity in the 7th century, why should they need it now?

“We’ve asked the UNAMA in Kabul to assist the people of Afghanistan to pay the country’s power suppliers as part of their humanitarian aid

That's screwed-up enough, the UN just might do it, too.
