LEC Prepares To Electrify Grand Gedeh County

By Chris Nyenapee, LINA Grand Gedeh Correspondent

ZWEDRU April 15 (LINA) -The Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC) has begun pre-registration of customers in Grand Gedeh County ahead of connection to the West African Power Pool (WAPP) cross-border electrification program.

Making the disclosure in Zwedru recently, LEC focal person, Harry Quiah, told the Liberia News Agency that the exercise is necessary for technicians to advise on the right type of wiring the customers would need for the WAPP high voltage current.

He said the WAPP was a heavier power supply compared to the power generators that are being used in the county for electric power.

Quiah said already, a total of 4,300 customers have registered, out of which 120 structures are in line with the required wiring.

Meanwhile, the LEC official is cautioning potential customers to seek technical advice from LEC technicians at the Corporation’s Zwedru office to facilitate smooth connection when the power supply time comes.

He did not say exactly when the WAPP power supply will commence in the County and Zwedru City, but expressed optimism it would be in the near future.
