PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: ON STEALING METERS

It has come to the attention of the Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC) that unscrupulous individuals masquerading as LEC employees are engaged in acts not sanctioned by the Corporation. These criminals have been stealing customers’ meters and demanding payments to repair faulty lines. These criminals are also engaged in the illegal sales of stolen meters and other electrical accessories which are not meant to be sold.

The LEC wishes to make it unequivocally clear that the activities of these criminals are not authorized by the Corporation. Customers whose meters were stolen are encouraged to kindly notify our Commercial Services Department through writing communication and include meter number and location. The public is warned against buying stolen meters and electrical cables from these individuals.  Kindly report any occurrence of such criminal act in your community to the nearest police station or at our Waterside office.

Individuals involved are warned to immediately desist or face the full weight of the law.
