Speaking to MTV Lebanon, the head of the Association of Generator Owners, Abdo Saadeh, said that generators cannot cover power cuts for 24 hours. “We currently cover between 18 and 20 hours,” he added.
People in Lebanon rely on backup generators to make up for the regular state electricity cuts, which will now inevitably increase. For certain health reasons, some people cannot afford to be cut from electricity for a single minute.
Now, if Lebanon reaches a point where it is no longer able to supply power, people may have to endure hours without state electricity nor backup generators.
