Libya to Import Electricity from Egypt, Tunisia

Libya plans to import electricity from Egypt and Tunisia, according to a report from Reuters.

A spokesperson for the Tripoli-based government also said that it intends to rent generators in an attempt to restore power to the city, which currently has only six hours of electricity per day.

Khalifa al-Ghwell, Prime Minister of the Tripoli-based government, said Tunisia is to supply 250 megawatts of electricity, and Egypt 75 MW, adding that the closure of steel firm Lisco would save 100 MW which will be fed into the Tripoli grid.

His government has also rented generators with a total capacity of 240 MW.
