No more power cuts says Power and Energy Ministry

power_distribution_slider2The Power and Energy Ministry says there will not be any power cuts from today as the Norochcholai coal power plant is back in operation.

The Ministry says most of the repairs on the coal power plant had been completed today and the plant was operational.

The Norochcholai coal power plant broke down last Saturday resulting in island-wide power cuts since Monday.

However the power cuts did not affect Colombo or hospitals around the country. (Colombo Gazette)
