Liberia: Commissioning of Mount Coffee

President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf speaking at the commissioning of Mount Coffee

On December 15, 2016, Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Linda Thomas-Greenfield and Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) Nancy Lee joined Liberia President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and international partners to celebrate the start of power generation from the first turbine at the Mount Coffee Hydropower Plant, expanding access to power for people, communities, and businesses in Liberia.
 With U.S. Government investment in the rehabilitation of Mount Coffee through the Millennium Challenge Corporation’s $257 million compact with Liberia, and other partners supporting the rehabilitation, the facility now provides an additional 22 megawatts of clean, renewable and affordable power—doubling the amount of power the utility provides to Liberians. When all four turbines are commissioned by the end of 2017, the plant will quadruple the amount of power the utility provides to Liberians.
