The Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) informs that the duration of power cuts will be extended from tomorrow.
Chairman Janaka Ratnayake said that the power outrage for today will remain at 1 hour and 20 minutes as usual.
However, due to the breakdown in the first generator of the Norochcholai Power Plant, the duration of power cuts will be extended from tomorrow as deemed appropriate.
The malfunctioning unit will reportedly take approximately 14- 16 days to repair.
The official announcement of the power cut will be released once approved by the PUCSL.
