    what about time tables for areas outside colombo - do we have to wait in suspense not knowing when the power cut is? CEB's website has links but when clicked it says 'schedule to be uploaded shortly' what a bunch of losers.

    Citizen Tuesday, 24 July 2012 07:02 AM

    Agree that we should be more energy conscious. But surely the present situation has occurred due to no plans by decision makers?

    bimba Tuesday, 24 July 2012 03:31 AM

    Everything in crisis. Soldiers victory also in the dangerous point. No solution for anything.

    unknown Tuesday, 24 July 2012 11:36 AM

    but it will reduce the productivity of working people, i have experienced it, i mean working without AC in city like Colombo is nightmare.

    Jlanka Solar Tuesday, 24 July 2012 03:27 AM

    Generating Solar Power on every possible building roof and supplying to the Grid is one of the best alternate energy solution. this solution is already implemented and successfully operating in many buildings.

    Take away the air conditioned cubicles from all the government and private offices and also from the top guys' cubicles. Demand the curtains pulled away from the office windows and let the sunshine come in, so the bulbs in offices could be put off in the day!
