The power outage has been extended to 2 hours and 20 minutes until Sunday: PUCSL

The Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) today approved request of the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) to impose 2 hours and 20 minutes until Sunday (25).

PUCSL Chairman Janaka Ratnayake said the extended power cut will come to effect from tomorrow.

He said the approval was granted considering the dysfunctionality of Old Laxapana Stage 1 and lack of fuel availability at Westcoast and due to sudden increase in demand.

Accordingly, the areas that come under groups A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V and W will experience the blackout for one hour during daytime and one hour and 20 minutes during night
