Kanchana discusses providing uninterrupted power supply


Minister of Power and Energy Kanchana Wijesekera attended a special meeting at the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) to discuss the providing of an uninterrupted power supply and to remove obstacles to the timely implementation of Renewable Energy Projects, in order to end the country’s power crisis.

The Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority was asked to obtain the required amount of fuel per month for the CEB and to approve the renewable projects for which applications had been submitted. This should suffice to cover the current power shortage, he said.
