COLOMBO (News 1st); Sri Lanka’s Energy Minister Kanchana Wijesekera has questioned why the Ceylon Electricity Board had deprived the opportunity of proceeding with renewable energy projects for many years if the existing act does not need amendments and has the capability of implementing renewable energy projects.
In a tweet on Thursday (9) morning, he also questioned why the Ceylon Electricity Board did not plan for grid capacity development and for least-cost electricity generation.
He said he is prepared to make the changes if necessary, but added that Sri Lanka will never move forward with pressurizing unions that are inefficient and a burden to the economy.
The Minister said that many unions do not fight for the betterment of their trade or their institute, but for the betterment of themselves.
In his tweets, the Minister said that the people have the right to an uninterrupted power supply and least cost generation.
He said that Sri Lanka does not have the option for the public to choose the service to provide, and the public should fight for that right.
