Use electricity carefully

Although the power generation capacity of all the major reservoirs have drastically come down the CEB will not resort to power cuts, assured Power and Energy Minister W.D.J Seneviratne.

However, the Minister appealed to the consumers to use the electricity sparingly, since the Government was spending huge sums of money for thermal power generation using fossil fuel.

The Power and Energy Ministry also requested the public to consume electricity with care as the power generation has greatly been affected with the drop in water levels in the main reservoirs.

Power generation of all powerhouses including Victoria, Randenigala, Rantembe, Kotmale, Lakshapana, Samanala has come down from 1,260 to 300 gigawatt hours.

Sri Lanka's daily power requirement is 1,800 megawatts. The diesel engines generate only 1,050 megawatts. The public is requested to switch off unnecessary lights in houses and refrain from using air-conditioners and energy guzzling equipment in households.
