The Media Bureau of the Head of the Government of National Accord and its Presidential Council, Fayez Al-Serraj said Wednesday that GECOL will begin the projects this year and will aim to end them between 12 and 18 months ahead with a capacity of over 2000 megawatts.

Libya has been troubled with the outages of power for three years now with every year becoming worse than the previous one, leading to the suffering among residents as they would have to bear with both hot weather and no electricity or cold weather and also no electricity.
