Repairs cause increase in electricity rationing

Zahrani power plant.

BEIRUT: Electricite Du Liban Friday said several areas in the country would suffer severe cut offs in the coming days due to work on the Zahrani Power Plant, while promising that the rationing would improve afterward.

In a statement, the company said it was installing a new adapter to replace an old one that “broke down in September 2013, impacting electricity supplies in areas that benefit from the Zahrani plant: Zahrani, Nabatieh, Msaileh, Sidon and Siblin.”

The adapter will be temporarily isolated for a six-day period to allow maintenance teams to make the swap.

“Electricity rationing will drastically decrease in areas that are connected to the power plant, but the company will compensate the areas by increasing electricity hours after work is complete.”

Replacing the adapter will improve electricity rationing in Zahrani, Nabatih and Msaileh, it said.
