Meanwhile, the Ministry of Power and Energy has revealed the reason for the country-wide power failure stating that the blackout was caused by a high voltage of electricity supply to the grid during a time of low demand.
Secretary to the Ministry of Power and Energy, Dr Suren Batagoda stated that a high voltage of electricity supplied to the grid during a time where the electricity demand is low, has led to the breakdown.
He further noted that an internal investigation has been launched into the incident.
