The chairman of Electricite du Liban, Kamal Hayek, has said Monday that new power plants were needed to meet rising energy demands, adding that severe electricity rationing in the summer was only normal given the country's production rate.While EDL produces around 1,500 megawatts, the actual demand is no less than 2,500 megawatts.The minister insisted that increasing electricity production could cause EDL's deficit to increase to alarming levels, and for this reason he favored revising the electricity rates as the best choice.
