 The Power and Energy Ministry today introduced a star rating system and Energy Conservation Label for electrical equipments including fluorescent bulbs, refrigerators, air-conditioners and fans in a bit to save a minimum Rs. 10 billion a year for the CEB.

Power and Energy Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka said the energy saving electrical equipments will be sold with a star rating and energy conservation label to ensure their energy serving and eco friendly capacity under the supervision of the Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority (SLSEA) that implements the project.

    One of the few people who knows what he's talking about..

    Asela Thursday, 14 October 2010 05:36 AM

    Thank god no hike in electricity bills....
    The only minister who does some work in this government

    Hats off to you Champika

    chandima L Thursday, 14 October 2010 05:37 AM

    Good news... thank you mr. minister, put CEB also in order just like the way you cleared environment ministry

    you are a doer a man with a vision for country

    mario Thursday, 14 October 2010 05:39 AM

    Super... wished all other ministers also can follow you.
    you are a misfit in this govt because you are the only one who works and does an excellent job of whatever you do
    keep it up
    mario

    No spoilers please....
    Appreciate it when somebody does something good irrespective of party politics
    I don't agree with his political views but have heard a lot about efficiency as a minister.
    Good work minister

    wije Thursday, 14 October 2010 05:51 AM

    its not easy to clear the CEB debts piled up over years due to the mismanagement by corrupt ministers.
    hope you can clear the place and bring some order. there's no reason why CEB should become a loss making body if its run properly

    wije Thursday, 14 October 2010 05:54 AM

    thank you mr minister
    can you tell Jonny not to increase vegetable prices also or would you mind taking over consumer affairs and put that place also in order

    malkanthi Thursday, 14 October 2010 05:56 AM

    The main political parties consist mainly corrupt members. The Red and JHU fellows are comparatively clean. But people vote for the corrupts, how can we change the system?

    Knight Rider Thursday, 14 October 2010 05:57 AM

    Dear Minister, Please, please light up our main roads using solar technology, night driving is so annoying and blinding since most drivers have to use their head lights, halogens or extra lighting since most of our main roads do not have street lighting. Also introduce solar panels on all school, commercials buildings, parking lots, supermarkets, people into solar business should market these solutions widely.

    Don't give to multi-national pressure when giving ratings... there are guys who try to bribe ministers, beware, but of course we know you are a straightforward guy.

    viraj Thursday, 14 October 2010 06:03 AM

    Agree malkanthi, people vote for corrupt guys and useless ones and then complain.
    In Colombo Wimal got over two lakhs of votes and duminda silva came second and champika was third.
    If people have brains champika who had a proven track record, having done a super job with environment ministry, should have topped the list while wimal and duminda should have gone to the bottom of the list like Bogollagama.

    DIlan Thursday, 14 October 2010 06:09 AM

    You are really fit to ur ministry post. since you were an electrical engineer once. I appriciate your good work

    wasala Thursday, 14 October 2010 06:19 AM

    definitely the best minister and i can't think of an equally focused one even in the UNP

    he would have gone further if he had more liberal views on ethnic politics. glad that he has stopped making racist comments lately. perhaps he is learning...

    paul Thursday, 14 October 2010 06:26 AM

    nice work.. somebody is doing something

    sltk2004 Thursday, 14 October 2010 06:38 AM

    CFC bulbs already have a an energy star rating. Any one can check that before buying. Isn't this re-doing what is already available ? (Like standardizing the already standard Sri Lankan time?)

    kasun Thursday, 14 October 2010 06:54 AM

    He shows how to work.

    Thush Thursday, 14 October 2010 07:16 AM

    No second thoughts, you are the best Minister in the cabinet. I mean better than even Basil.

    Daya Thursday, 14 October 2010 05:47 PM

    And Ranil on the other side !

    great8 Thursday, 14 October 2010 07:23 AM

    One of educated, working, clean and forward thinking minister in recent politic.
    Also should give this knowledge to rural areas though people in cities may know what this is but they are not.

    migara Thursday, 14 October 2010 07:23 AM

    sltk2004
    The earlier rating system had its own faults and the world trend for rating has changed. the new one it looks is for all lighting products with new definers for energy saving as done in many developed countries

    Lokka Thursday, 14 October 2010 07:41 AM

    you are r8

    migara Thursday, 14 October 2010 07:53 AM

    thush, Basil? are you in your proper senses...how can you compare champika with Basil...? what an insult to champika?

    Ruwan Ferdinandez Thursday, 14 October 2010 08:03 AM

    The Reds are clean? Have they completely washed off the blood stains from 88-89 from their hands?
