Lebanon’s Electricite du Liban (EDL) has said the country could face harsher electricity cuts this summer if the government fails to revise a decision to reduce allocations to the state-owned firm, The Daily Star has reported. “If we follow the instruction of the cabinet that EDL should not exceed the LL2.869trn ceiling then we will be forced to increase power rationing to at least 14 hours a day and we may also increase the cuts to the capital Beirut,” an EDL official told the daily. “All of our plants are ready to supply electricity if the allocations are increased to LL3.96trn. But if the subsidy amount remains unchanged then EDL will have to increase rationing,” the official said.
