The Government of Liberia has taken giant steps to ensure access to stable and affordable electricity in the country. TRANSCO CLSG, a regional transmission company established by the West African Power Pool (WAPP) is excited about the latest move by the government, The Analyst has learned.

Meanwhile, the Management of TRANSCO CLSG is applauding the Government’s decision to allocate $14M (USD) through the recast budget, which was approved recently by the legislature, for 2022 towards efforts to improve access to stable and affordable electricity in the country.  

“This is a significant step towards Liberia’s national and regional commitments,” says the General Manager of TRANSCO CLSG, Mohammed M. Sherif. He praised President George Weah and his illustrious team for the allocation of the money that will go a long way to provide the much-awaited access to stable electricity.

TRANSCO CLSG welcomes the bold development and views the government’s action as a sustained commitment of the people of Liberia through their government, led by His Excellency President George Manneh Weah, to tackle the energy delivery issues in the country.  

The appropriation was recently passed by the Senate following its passage by the House a few weeks ago. Once sign into law by the President, Liberia will be able to move to effect the necessary commercial agreements including the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Cote d’Ivoire and the Transmission Service Agreement with TRANSCO CLSG, which will pave the way for the delivery of light to millions of Liberians who are patiently awaiting the electricity. 

The Republic of Liberia is an integral partner in the TRANSCO CLSG process. Of the 1, 303km of high voltage transmission line that runs from Man in Cote d’Ivoire, 537km of this line passes through Liberia with five stations in Yekepa, Botota, Buchanan, Monrovia, and Mano. Four of the five substations, except Botota, have been completed, energized and ready to serve. 

With the recent development announced by Liberia, TRANSCO CLSG is excited and looks forward to seeing Liberia concluding commercial framework documents that will welcome the country onboard. We look forward to fulfilling our mission of connecting light to lives in the CLSG region.
