Sri Lankan government has clarified that there will be no revision of electricity prices, putting an end to media speculation on the matter. The government’s established policy dictates that electricity prices will be subject to biannual revisions, taking place in January and July each year.
Furthermore, the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) has taken measures to ensure an uninterrupted supply of power throughout the entire year, affirming its commitment to keeping the nation well-powered and productive. At present, the CEB is fully utilizing the available capacity of its power plants to generate electricity.
Minister of Power and Energy, Kanchana Wijesekara, commented on the situation, saying “There’s will be no price revision on electricity as speculated in the media. CEB has planned for an uninterrupted supply of power islandwide throughout the year with no scheduled power cuts”.
