There are economies of scale when it comes to fossil fuel/nuclear type of plants. This limits how small you can get and still make economic sense. This is why the generators are much more expensive to run. This is especially true for the combined cycle gas plants they were targeting. When it comes to renewables, yes scale does not matter much and you can go from small to very large plants with very little issues.I beg to differ, I think smaller scales are more cost efficient and more productive than centralized ones.
Sure, FM and Amal are d*cks too, but I think it's always easier to shift the blame to someone else, shouldn't FPM resign from the ministry if FM and Amal obstruct the projects? Why fight a losing battle? resign and become part of the opposition. I just think it's FPM's way of not taking any accountability for their incompetency in the public energy sector.
Resigning in normal countries works, in Lebanon it's the biggest favor you can do to the corrupts. They'll just replace you with a lackey, have a free hand and not one person will care. Don't blame FPM for this, blame the entire Lebanese electorate.
As for accountability, that is exactly my point. The right parties need to be taken accountable for their deeds. FPM is in part reason for the electricity debacle but they are far from being the main one. Minister Patek Philippe alone cost us $16B and single handedly caused more blackouts. Pinning his misdeed on FPM is disingenuous at best.
