Electricity issues in Lebanon: Let the people talk

Abstract : This paper presents an important issue which is the recurrent electricity outages in Lebanon which affects customers at all levels: residential , commercial, and industrial. People resort to buying electricity from local and private providers to fulfill their needs which seem to be an expensive choice due to high fuel prices. The paper focuses on the residential sector. In that sector, the need for electricity will continue to grow as reliance on electricity-driven appliances in each household will increase and also the population is increasing. So there is a desire to consume more electricity which will lead to more power outages in the future if no appropriate measures are taken. As to where the situation is heading, it all depends on many factors such as political will and availability of fund. This paper presents the results of a survey conducted by the authors during August 2018 on this permanent problem in Lebanon. The survey's objective is to hear the opinion of the participants on this problem and to show how they have managed to face it until now.
