MONROVIA-The Management of the Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC) has begun testing the second power generating unit of the Mount Coffee Hydro Plant.

It said during testing customers may experience interruptions in power supply, and there will be power outages in preparation to bring the second turbine online.

The completion of the second turbine unit will increase the capacity of the plant to 44 megawatts.

According to a release from the LEC on February 1, 2017, the completion of the unit will increase the corporation customer base. The Management also said that testing will pave the way for tariff reduction.

When the entire project is completed, Mount Coffee Plant will have the capacity of 88 megawatts which is expected to cover Central Liberia.
