  • Officials say proper management of fuel-fired power generation can help prevent power cuts

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa stressed that steps should be taken to find a solution to the power crisis without disrupting the lives of the people, a statement from the President’s Media Division (PMD) said.

The statement said the President made these remarks during a discussion held at the Presidential Secretariat yesterday with the Heads of the Power and Energy sectors regarding the issue of power cuts. According to the statement, the officials pointed out that this situation had arisen due to several issues in relation to the generation of electricity using coal and fossil fuels. 


Managing the coal reserves in Sri Lanka is adequate to avert a power crisis. The officials also said that proper management of fuel-fired power generation can help prevent power cuts. 
The Ministers of Power and Energy stated that all steps have been taken to manage the current situation and maintain the livelihood of the people.
