The situation of the electricity
remains dire, the need for generators remains urgent, while the search for
solutions became absolutely necessary. In the light of this fact, the Lebanese Industrialists
Association presented a proposal to fill the electricity
deficit in Lebanon with a cost lower than that of Turkish ships.
This Industrial electrical proposal
benefits all categories of Lebanese people and saves the treasury burdens no
The concerned authorities received,
through the media, the industrialists’ proposal to produce energy, most
particularly, through an official letter sent by the head of the industrial
cities committee of the Industrialists Association, Michel Daher, whereby
he declared that “he is ready to establish a power plant with a capacity
of 50 megawatts to illuminate the region of Zahle”.
In this context, the head of the
Lebanese Industrialists Association Nemat Frem said
that the costs of electricity today are very high for the industrialists,
noting that one of the solutions could be increasing the capacity of the
existing power plants used by industrialists and using low-cost fuels.
In a statement to LBCI, Frem said that another
solution lies in selling the surplus of electricity produced by the
industrialists by connecting their production to the network, under the same
conditions given to the Turkish ships.
He noted that the 1000 megawatts needed
by Electricite Du Liban will be costing the company large sums of at least two
billion USD, pointing that in case the private sector produces electricity, it
will help the government save money.
Electricity is considered the most important need
for the Lebanese people, while providing the citizens with 24-hour supply of
electricity remains the biggest challenge.
