What Assaad Nakad did to Zahle is a dream come true for a lot of Lebanese. He supplied them with 24/7 electrical energy, 24/7 water and united them in opposition to the generator mafias. EDZ has been offering 24/7 electrical energy to Zahle residents since March 2015, nevertheless its contract ends in 2018 and it seems that the present Vitality Minister does not want to renew its contract.
In a current businessnews article, Minister Abi Khalil said that “EDL will regain management over energy distribution within the metropolis, similar to we did in Aley two years in the past, and can do in Jbeil when the concession there expires”. His claims are that the price of energy manufacturing by EDZ is 20 cents per kilowatt hour, double that of EDL, which is true however somebody ought to remind me we’re not getting 24/7 electrical energy and EDZ wouldn’t have existed if there wasn’t an influence scarcity difficulty.
I’m hopeful that Zahle residents wouldn’t permit that to occur, as a result of that will imply going again to paying a invoice for EDL and one other for the turbines and it could be a significant setback to companies and residents.
