The Power and Energy Ministry is set to reach its ’Electricity for All by 2012’ target with solar and dendro power stations to be constructed in remote villages that have not been served by the national grid.
Ceylon Electricity Board sources said some 4,593 rural electrification schemes will be constructed during the next two years.
Power and Energy Minister Champika Ranawaka yesterday said all rural households that cannot be economically connected to the National Grid, will be provided with alternative electrical energy sources under the Ceylon Electricity Board’s Rural Energy Program. .
