first_imgReacting to the concerns of the General Services Agency (GSA) Road’s residents and businesses, the Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC) has admitted it is facing serious constraints in the country’s energy sector.They admitted that concerns expressed by residents and businesses on the GSA Road are genuine and plans are being worked out to ensure the area is fully connected this year. LEC, however, pointed out that some parts of the GSA Road have been connected on their power lines in Paynesville.In an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer Monday, April 28, LEC’s Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Joseph T. Mayah, claimed that the nation’s electrical system was almost completely destroyed as a result of the civil conflict.He said prior to the 15-year-civil war, the LEC operated nationally with total assets of US$700,000,000. Unfortunately, the company’s power plants and related facilities were completely destroyed rendering the system useless.“We must be realistic with Liberians and let them know that the LEC has many hurdles to clear. Liberians should continue to exercise patience as we translate our plans into practical solutions. We are doing all we can to provide the nation with the best service possible,” Mr. Mayah explained.He disclosed that Liberia’s electricity sector has received strong support from the Liberian Government, and its partners from around the world.The LEC’s Deputy Chief said the Corporation’s major donor partners were the World Bank, European Development Bank, African Development Bank and United States Agency for International Development (USAID).Shedding light on the Mount Coffee Hydro project, Mr. Mayah said steady progress has been made with a commitment from government and its partners of US$260,000,000 to complete the plant. If things work out according to schedule, the hydro should be completed by 2015.He said the LEC is in the business of selling a product and should therefore be able to provide reliable power to its many customers in the country.“Our expansion initiative in Kakata in Margibi County is nearing completion, as bulk of the power lines connections have been installed,” he added.According to him, the expansion project has received a contribution from Japan of US$27,000,000; with the World Bank pledged US$16,000,000 and the Liberian Government promising US$30,000,000. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
