Minister of Power and Energy Kanchana Wijesekera, stated that in the event of the Electricity Board realizing any operating profit by December, attributed to the favourable rain conditions, a strategic decision has been made to allocate these gains to consumers in April.

Furthermore, Minister Kanchana Wijesekera highlighted that the Electricity Board is currently facing a financial deficit of Rs. 12 billion. However, given the prevailing rain conditions, it is anticipated that there may be a positive turn in the financial outlook, as indicated in the upcoming financial report of the Electricity Board in December.

Minister Wijesekera shared these insights during his participation in a Press Briefing held at the Presidential Media Centre (PMC) on November 25, organized under the theme ‘Collective Path to a Stable Country’.
