Some electricity generator owners are still refusing to install consumption meters in protest of the government's new pricing, a source from the Central Committee of Generator Owners in Lebanon said Thursday, despite the state ramping up efforts to enforce the installation.One generator owner was interviewed Thursday by local TV station Al-Jadeed in front of State Security's regional headquarters in Baabda, saying he had been held there for 24 hours for questioning. Khoury said that since the protest, 21 generator owners suspected of cutting their services have been so far called in by State Security.A source from the generators' committee said the committee hired an expert who set the price per kilowatt-hour at LL560 .The ministry had also set a monthly subscription fee for owners to cover their fixed costs, at LL15,000 for a 5-ampere subscription, LL23,000 for 10-amperes and LL30,000 for 15-amperes.
