MONROVIA, March 13 (LINA) - The Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC) has cautioned subscribers to the LEC power distribution network not to purchase installation materials from LEC staff as they are not for sale.
The LEC Consultant for Transmission and Distribution, Thomas Gonkerwon, said installation materials such as wires, circuit breakers and meters, should not be sold to customers as the LEC is working to improve the distribution of power.
He gave the warning Friday at the Ministry of Information daily press conference held at the ministry in Monrovia.
Gonkerwon noted that currently the LEC’s primary goal is to provide as many Liberians as possible the opportunity to get connected to the power grid to improve their daily lives and economic activities.
He disclosed that the LEC is working on plans to connect more communities, while others across the St. Paul Bridge, beyond the Baptist Seminary and along the Gardnerville road will not be connected soon due to road construction works and lack of distribution channels.
Meanwhile, Gonkerwon has urged customers to pay their electricity bills, noting that this is key to enhancing the operation of the LEC.
He said it requires immense capital and revenue generation to enable the LEC operate each of its power units, and as such customers must be willing to pay their electricity bills regularly.
