Sri Lanka’s worst power cuts predicted in March and April 2023


Sri Lanka’s worst power cuts may come as early as March and April, as the country has failed to secure sufficient coal stocks required for thermal power generation, Nihal Weerarathne of the the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) Engineers Union said.

“Our hydro power generation capacity will not be sufficient as the rainfall was less this year. To provide thermal power however, Sri Lanka is struggling to secure the necessary stocks of coal. We now predict a dark March and April, months ahead of the power cuts we predicted for July,” Weerarathne said.
