The electricity sector regulator, the Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL), is planning to spend Rs. 250 million on its Activity Plan 2017 to uplift the electricity sector.
The total budget of the Activity Plan 2017 will be used for 89 proposed activities in achieving key objectives of PUCSL, which also include routine functions and activities of the consumer consultative committee respectively. The activities focus on improving productivity and convenience for electricity consumers, ensuring affordable electricity prices and sustainable financial stability for licensees, improving safety from electricity for every living being, properties of the general public, licensees and operators and improving environmental conditions for humans, animals and plants.
Most of the activities are being developed to uplift the electricity sector, while prominence has been given to draft petroleum regulations and water sector regulations as the government showed the green light to make the two industries under the purview of PUCSL.
The execution of the plan is carried out by nine functional divisions of PUCSL while a project manager has been appointed in respect of each activity.

The PUCSL believes that public consultation is highly effective when identifying major projects in the regulatory process, hence decided to get the public views, opinions, comments and suggestions on its activities Plan 2017.
The plan was articulated according to the organizational result based framework which is critical in meeting management information needs and ensuring accountability at the various levels of the organization, and based on the objectives and functions stipulated in the Public Utilities Commission Act No 35 of 2002 and the Sri Lanka Electricity Act No. 20 of 2009.
