COLOMBO (News 1st); The Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) on Tuesday (15) stated that no more power cuts will be implemented in the future, although several steps have been taken to reduce the electricity consumption.
Accordingly, the PUCSL stated that the electricity being generated by hydropower stations will be reduced by 50% from Wednesday (16), while large-scale consumers were instructed to purchase standby generators.
Moreover, Janaka Rathnayake, the Chairman of PUCSL said that if residents in housing complexes need to have air conditioning between 06:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m., they will need to use generators, while the power consumption at State Institutions will also be reduced.
He further said that Provincial Councils have been informed to reduce their power consumption by 80%, while mentioning that the power consumed by street lights will also be needed to reduce by 80%, adding that “How people walk in streets is not the issue of PUCSL, but of the Provincial Councils,”.
Moreover, he mentioned that the CEB has been enabled to import the necessary stocks of oil it needs without depending on the CPC for oil.
