Sri Lanka to resume power cuts from today


The power cuts today and tomorrow (16th and 17th) will be limited to 2 hours and 15 minutes, said the Chairman of the Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) Janatha Ratnayake.

Accordingly, the power cuts will be imposed today and tomorrow between 8.00 am and 6.00 pm for 2 hours and 15 minutes. There will be no power cuts cut after 6.00 pm, the PUCSL Chairman said.

The Ceylon Electricity Board said the power cuts will be carried out regionally as previously planned.

Power cuts were not imposed during the past three days, in view of the New Year.

Meanwhile, the PUCSL chairman says he believes that the power cuts will be reduced after the 18th.
