The Management of the Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC) wishes to inform its valued customers that due to unforeseeable challenges with power generation in Cote d’Ivoire, CI Energies, the electricity supplier through the Transco-CLSG transmission lines, is no longer able to supply Liberia with electricity beyond contracted capacity.
The impact of such an unfortunate development is that LEC may not be able to meet domestic peak demand, which is currently 74 MW, well above the current generation capacity of the corporation. LEC is hopeful that water inflow into the Mt. Coffee dam will improve over the coming days to enable the full operation of the dam. Until then, LEC may be required to undertake selective load-shedding to match electricity demand to the available capacity.
