15 Things We Need Electricity For

Just a simple reminder of what we need electricity for and why power cuts should not be a regular part of our daily routine.

Editorial Purpose: We are sharing this piece of content to give a voice to our people and possibly mobilize change.

1. The fridge

Otherwise all your – now insanely expensive – food will go bad.

2. Charging our phones

And laptops, and iPads, and all other electric appliances.

3. The internet router

Because you simply cannot rely on 3G.

4. The elevator

Stairs are the healthy way to go but not when you live on the 15th floor.

5. Garage doors

Pretty self-explanatory.

6. The microwave

We just want to heat our food man.

7. Street lights

Seeing Beirut in pitch black darkness is too eerie.

8. House lights

Pretty basic needs.

9. Air conditioning/fans

We’re in summer and the heat is unbearable.

10. The washing machine

Do we have to elaborate?

11. VAPE machines

The mosquitoes are eating us alive.

12. Health needs

Like oxygen machines and other medical equipment.

13. TV

To keep up with the Minister of Energy’s statements on the power cuts.

14. Hair dryer

Because our moms won’t let us go out with wet hair.

15. The house-line

Especially when your phone runs out of battery.
