The Chief Executive Officer of the New Energy Electric Vehicles (NEEV) Liberia has disclosed that US$250 million " Solar Power Grid& quot company is expected to be established in Liberia.  Mr. Cassell Anthony Kuoh Sr., said the establishment of the solar power grid company will go a long way to transform the electrical system and protect the ecosystem in Liberia from air pollution.

He noted that solar power grid is one of the means to reduce global warming and climate change which are affecting many parts of the world and Liberia is no exception. He asserted that NEEV Liberia will work along with the Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ensure that Liberian people have access to electricity across the country through the solar power grid. Mr. Kuoh explained that as the result of climate change which is affecting the weather condition in more countries, e-mobility has been introduced through manufacturing vehicles which are using electricity rather than gasoline.

He noted that the regulation of commercial motorbikes and Keke on major streets in Monrovia should be welcome by Liberians for the transformation of the development in the nation and its people. According to him, countries around world which are develop currently, their leaders have to use veto power to ensure that major developments are achieved for the benefits of every citizen and Liberians especially the motorcyclists and their owners should exercise restraint as government put in placed these measures to protect lives and properties. He acknowledged that as human being, we are quick to adopt to situation and Liberians are no exception to soon be adoptable to the regulations being instituted by the Liberian Government to move the transport system forward.
