Economy Ministry inspectors carried out the first electricity generator confiscation Tuesday in Baabda's Hadath, after multiple warnings were issued to generator owners violating a decree to install consumption meters.Economy Ministry inspectors at the scene in Hadath told TV reporters the generator owner had failed to install the meters within the given period, despite receiving several violation orders.The Hadath mayor said Bachaalani was among the owners who had stopped providing electricity for two hours earlier this month to protest the new measures.LBCI reported Hadath Municipality was the first to accept operating generators confiscated from their owners, which is why the first confiscation took place in Hadath.Some generator owners have refused to comply with the law in rejection of the electricity pricing, which was set by the Energy Ministry at LL439 ($0.29) per kilowatt-hour for the month of October.
