LEC Clarifies Shortage In Power Supply

By Nyema Nma, Jr.
A staff in the Customer Service Department at the Liberia Electricity Corporation says the entity has no intention of providing less kilowatts of power to its customers as it has been alleged by some customers in Monrovia and parts adjacent.
Verity Sonkarlay said the LEC fixed charges are applied every month upon purchase of LEC tokens which most customers are construing as shortages to their power supply.
“Fixed charge is once a month and deduction is made per month,” Sonkarlay said, describing those complaining as new customers who are now actively using the LEC services.
“Most customers are complaining now because they have started buying LEC tokens,” she observed and informed this paper that the tariff was enforced by the Liberia Electricity Regulatory Commission and not LEC as is being speculated by customers. She then encouraged citizens to avoid power theft and utilize the full services of the corporation.
It has been speculated by some customers that the LEC has increased its tariff in the LEC token from US$0.24 to US$0.26 thus reducing the kilowatt from 18kw to as low as 8kw for US$5.
