Media Minister Dullas Alahapperuma said that ministers and parliamentarians have to make great sacrifices at this juncture as policymakers to manage the current power crisis.
He was speaking at a media briefing today (25).
The Minister said that if one 25 watt light bulb could be switched off during the peak five hours of the afternoon, 140 megawatts could be saved.
Alahapperuma also said that air conditioners have been activated in some offices unnecessarily and according to electrical experts those should be kept at 26 degrees Celsius.
He further emphasized that the government MPs and ministers should make the greatest sacrifice at this moment and set that example as policymakers.
