Lebanon's electricity production has exceeded 2,200 megawatts from 1,650 and 1,700 MW just a few months ago, state-owned Electricite du Liban said in a statement Monday.It added that this brings total electricity supply in Beirut to 21 hours a day while other regions will enjoy 15 to 18 hours of electricity a day.The leasing of two new barges is expected to provide the country with seven additional hours of electricity to be added to the three hours of power generated by the power plants in Zouk Mikael and Jiyyeh.The main idea behind the leasing of the barges is to give the Energy Ministry and EDL more time to build new power plants to provide all of Lebanon with 24 hours of electricity in the future.
