Caretaker Economy Minister Raed Khoury suggested Friday that the state's electricity pricing may be adjusted, if meters are implemented, after meeting a delegation from Chouf and Aley, who belongs to a committee of generator owners.Jad Nahle, a spokesperson for the group, said many generator owners in Chouf had already installed meters years ago.Khoury reportedly clarified that the violation notices issued to generator owners who had not complied with the decision could be reconsidered if the owners come around.Earlier this year, the state issued a memo ordering generator owners to install meters, effective this past Monday.After the memo was issued, generator owners hit back at the pricing, saying that the rate stipulated by the Energy Ministry would make the sector unprofitable.
