New Electricity Bill Endorsed, Enacts Major Reforms

June 28, Colombo (LNW): The new Sri Lanka Electricity Bill, passed in Parliament three weeks ago, received endorsement from the Speaker of Parliament yesterday (27), coming into effect immediately.

This landmark legislation aims to implement comprehensive reforms in Sri Lanka’s electricity industry. Key provisions include the establishment of the National Electricity Advisory Council and the designation of the Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) as the industry regulator.

The bill mandates the creation of corporate entities under the Companies Act No. 07 of 2007 to manage the generation, transmission, distribution, trade, supply, and procurement of electricity. Additionally, it repeals the Ceylon Electricity Board Act No. 17 of 1969 and the Sri Lanka Electricity Act No. 20 of 2009, marking a significant shift in the legislative framework governing the sector.
