Rolling blackout in Libya’s peak summer heat will be 5 hours a day
Posted – 19th March 2021
The Head of the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL), Wiam Al-Abdali, said Libya could see five hours of rolling blackout a day in the peak summer heat, but there couldn’t be any power outages if GECOL managed to provide additional 1500 megawatts.
These remarks came Thursday in a meeting for Al-Abdali with the Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity (GNU) and the Governor of the Central Bank, Al-Siddiq Al-Kabri, GNU Ministers and GECOL officials.
GNU media office said the meeting discussed power outages and reviewed the short-term and long-term work-plans to end this dilemma, reiterating that the GNU would support GECOL with all its needs.
The Prime Minister, Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah, reaffirmed the need to end the obstacles facing GECOL in order to help it provide better services to Libyans.
Meanwhile, Al-Abdali said they have a plan to produce 1200/1500 megawatts to end the crisis of power outages and decrease rolling blackout hours immensely.
