There will be no power cuts today, but power will be interrupted from Tuesday due to inadequate fuel supply, Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) Acting General Superintendent Dr. Susantha Perera said.

He told the media that if there is a power outage on Tuesday, the public will be informed ahead.

"The Kelanitissa power station has diesel only for five and a half days. Sapugaskanda fuel stocks ended at 12 noon yesterday.

 Sapugaskanda thermal power station is currently  unproductive. There were no power outages yesterday or today.The capacity will diminish on Monday. This issue would be solved if we get fuel on Monday (24). If there is no fuel on Tuesday (25), "then we have to face the tune," Mr. Perera said.

When there is a shortage during the peak demand even at nights, power cuts would then become inevitable.

No power cuts will be imposed without informing the people. Now the hydro power plants have reached their maximum level due to dwindling water levels. The CEB will seek advice from the Public Utilities Commission before imposing power cuts. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    The only accomplishment of this government is blaming the earlier governments for its inability and stupidity.

    Arnold Sunday, 23 January 2022 09:22 AM

    What is the use of a government and ministers who continue to suck the country dry?

    Minister with his experience mentioned that he was planning to provide power.

    This is a pathetic joke, one say no one say yes.. Sri lanka is nothing but a kleptocracy run buy a mafia criminal gang of thieves and the supporters and cohorts, and the buddhist taliban aided buy the corrupt to the core judiciary. Only idiots who do not realize it.

    All these years power cuts were a bygone era. Why now it emerging? We boast of hydro power, selling excess power to India etc., now the entire nation is facing a delima. We call upon the executive president to take the wip to his hands.
