The Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) published the one-hour load shedding schedule on its official website categorising feeders into four categories A, B, C and D.

Meanwhile, CEB officials said they were compelled to put-off its scheduled load shedding plan yesterday (10) in a bid ‘not to contradict’ the assurance by Minister Gamini Lokuge.

CEB’s AGM in charge of power generation, A.R. Navamani said the load shedding plan published is the approved one they received from the Public Utilities Commission (PUCSL) . 

“However, like yesterday this might be subjected to changes depending on the demand and generation capacity of each feeder assigned. We can’t assure how long we can continue without adhering to the schedule as there may be power outages due to maintenance issues,” Navamani added.

According to CEB, load shedding will continue for one hour from 5:30 p.m. to 9.30 pm (17.30-18.30, 18.30-19.30, 19.30-20.30, 20.30-21.30)
