Installation of meters on generators begins
2018-10-02
Price set at LL410 per kilowatt hour

A government order to install energy meters on private power generators and regulate the price of privately-generated electricity has gone into effect more than a year after it was issued.

The decision, which was jointly issued by the Ministries of Economy and Trade (MoET) and Energy and Water (MoEW) in mid-2017, was roundly opposed by energy generator owners, who threatened to shut down their generators, leaving their customers in the dark, if they were forced to install meters, which measure the amount of electricity consumed.

The two parties have since been through several rounds of negotiations to set a price per kilowatt hour.
