400 Customers Connected in Nimba County, Says LEC

By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe

MONROVIA, May 22 (LINA) -An estimated 400 customers have been connected to the Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC) network in Nimba County, LEC Deputy Managing Director Joseph Myers has disclosed.

According to Mr. Myers, these customers are paying their bills and goods and services tax to government, thereby helping to contribute to the economy of the country.

According to the Liberia News Agency (LINA), Myers made the disclosure Wednesday in Monrovia when he appeared before the Senate Committee on Public Works and Rural Development and the House Committee on Health and Social Welfare for a public hearing on the National Housing Policy of Liberia in the joint chambers of the National Legislature.

He addressed the hearing on the Topic: “Providing and sustaining energy efficiency to help advance the overall quality of affordable housing”.

It can be recalled that the Governments of Liberia and Cote d’Ivoire, the West African Power Pool (WAPP) and the European Union (EU) signed an Agreement in 2008 for the construction of distribution lines from Cote d’Ivoire to Nimba, Grand Gedeh and Maryland Counties to feed 18 communities in the three counties as the initial phase of the project.

According to Myers, the distribution lines have been completed, and customers are now connected in Ganta, Sanniquellie and Karnplay, adding that other cities yet to be connected in Nimba County include Loguato, Duoplay and Saclepea.

Myers also revealed that as of May 17, 2014, the distribution network in Maryland County has been energized from Cote d’Ivoire and street lights are currently on in Harper City and other towns in the county.

The LEC Deputy Managing Director further indicated that the connections of customers in Maryland County will soon commence.

At the same time, Mr. Myers has said that the distribution network in Grand Gedeh County is expected to be energized between May 19, 2014-24, commencing from Toe Town, Zwedru, Blodiala and Tappita.
