Environment Minister urges to turn off 50 per cent of light bulbs

Environment Minister Mahinda Amaraweera says that he has instructed the top officials of his Office and its affiliates to reduce the number of light bulbs used during the day by 50 per cent, in a move to solve the electricity crisis.

It is everyone’s responsibility to adapt into a minimum usage of electricity as the country is suffering from a huge power crisis, the Minister pointed out, adding that both state and private institutions should take such action accordingly.

Meanwhile, power cuts of nearly two hours occurred in some areas of the country today (19), in contradiction to the announcement made by the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) that today’s power cut will last only for one hour.
