CEB’s requests denied. No power cuts allowed: PUCSL

The Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) today (15) announced that it had not granted approval to the long term power cut requested by the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) last week.

Speaking to a briefing today, PUCSL Chairman Janaka Ratnayake emphasised that the situation can be managed without launching a power cut in accordance with the data.

Accordingly, instructions have been given to drop the generation of hydro power by fifty per cent until the next rainfall.

The CEB had requested the PUCSL to grant them approval to launch a power cut in the months February, March and April. The PUCSL held a discussion with the CEB in this regard on Saturday (12) and later told media that their conclusion will be disclosed today.

The PUCSL has further made recommendations for public and private institutes and the general public to manage electricity consumption.
