Caretaker Energy Minister Cesar Abi Khalil said Monday that new power plants would be built in Lebanon to meet the country's electricity deficit, regardless of the obstacles.Abi Khalil's comments came after the minister, along with American Ambassador Elizabeth Richard, participated in an event publicizing an electricity project that marks the single biggest investment by an American company in Lebanon, according to the pair.The conference was held by American company PrimeSouth, which, in 2016, was awarded a contract to operate and maintain for five years the power plants in Deir Ammar and Zahrani in southern Lebanon.Lebanese political factions agree that fixed power plants are the solution to Lebanon's energy crisis, however, these projects have been met with several years of delays.
