We’ve been hearing for weeks now about the political bickering in the Cabinet and Parliament regarding the electricity bill proposed.

If this keeps going the same way and it probably will, power rationing, currently at between 8 to 12 hours a day, especially in Beirut’s suburbs and other areas, will get worse by the summer of 2013. [Link]

My question is if our politicians are so damn worried about us Lebanese getting electricity, why don’t they propose alternative solutions such as solar panels?

Those are easier to install and definitely cheaper than the 1.2 billion dollar bill and more importantly, are environmentally friendly and help lower our energy costs.

If the problem is that they can’t steal money out of a solar panel project, then I suggest Lebanese elect candidates who really care about their well-being the next time.
