The Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) has been ordered to establish a Special Task Force to find alternative power solutions to the power crisis, Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE) Chairman MP Sunil Handunnetti said.

He said the CEB Chairman was ordered to establish the Special Task Force since hydro power was limited and thermo power was expensive.

The MP said COPE had already received a number of proposals on possible alternatives to the power crisis. (Dayasili Liyanage)

    I have solar power grid connected here in Sri Lanka and in the Netherlands.In the Netherlands there was a subsidy for the purchase of the system and there was an exemption from VAT.Also if you produced more than you used the excess was bought by the utilty company.This would stimulate local households to invest in small scale solar systems.Why not try a pilot scheme for a limited number of installations.

    "find alternative power solutions to the power crisis," --- AND followed up by saying " Thermal power is expensive" This is NOT rocket science, for COPE to get excited about. - every one knows this - In the long run it could range from Nuclear , Wave power, Wind Power, Large Solar Farms, right down to many many mini hydro plants. To my simple mind this is about all one could recomend Any knowledgeable person (also being aware of high costs of implementation ) will recommend conventional thermal power - and that for a fast solution will go for gas turbines or diesel engine operation. Also - think of having another 275KV transmission line from Norachcholai to another recieving station as well , and one 300MW set feeding seperately on this line. Better think of similar solutions when coming up with large capacity generating Stations. However these transmission line solutions depend on stabilty studies CEB Engineers preparing the annual generation rolling plan know best
