    Liberia has one of the lowest grid electrification rates in the world with less than 10% of the population connected to grid power. The grid in and around Monrovia is powered by the hydro plant Mount Coffee and Diesel generators operated by the Liberian Electricity Corporation (LEC). Further, there are three cross-border medium voltage grids importing electricity from Côte d’Ivoire that are planned to cover 2,800 customers. Extending the grid and adding mini-grids is key towards increasing access to electricity.
