From 01 August, 2004 until April 30, 2013 the Authority was mandated with regulating the electricity sector. In 2007 the Government decided that the Lesotho Electricity Authority (LEA) should be transformed to be a multi-sector regulatory body assuming additional powers to regulate urban water and sewerage services in the country. LEWA officially started regulating both electricity and urban water and sewerage services sector on May 01, 2013.
The Authority independently deals with matters such as electricity pricing, complaints handling and resolution and the supervision of the implementation of the Quality of Service and Supply standards (QOSSS) by its licensees.
“To be a world class utilities regulator that facilitates delivery of affordable, sustainable and quality services.”
“To regulate the electricity, urban water and sewerage services in the interests of all stakeholders through transparency, consistency, professionalism and teamwork.”
