No move to enforce 10-12 hour power cuts

There is no move to enforce 10-12 hour power cuts over the next 2-3 months, the Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) said.

PUCSL Chairman Janaka Ratnayake said that no matter what some people say, based on current data there is no need for long power cuts.

Ratnayake told reporters today that there is a fair amount of rain and more rain is expected in the near future.

The PUCSL also said that there is an increase in wind power owing to the current weather.

He also said that there will not be power cuts on Vesak Day on Sunday. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. It will be very interesting to see Sri Lanka’s situation in six months time and India’s situation after a couple of years. Please be mindful, Covid-19 won’t go away, it is going to stay for another 7-15 years. I suspect, India will have deadly variants. After a few lockdowns India’s economy will be similar to Sri Lankan economy. India is not wealthy and powerful enough to fight back as China does. The western strategy is breaking India before it becomes powerful as China, otherwise the western powers are done.
