Due to the current fuel crisis in the country, there could be delays in the restoration of emergency power outages and other maintenance, the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) announced.

Although the challenge of limited resources is beyond the control of CEB, they said they are always committed to providing electricity as soon as possible to minimise the inconvenience to the consumers.

“The current fuel crisis in the country is also a challenge for CEB too. CEB has had to identify the priorities and direct the vehicles in the field service of CEB for the restoration of power outages and other maintenance work, due to the lack of fuel. Due to this, there may be some delays in the restoration of emergency power outages,” CEB said. (AK)
