Sri Lanka utility regulator rubbishes “baseless” power cut forecasts by politicians

May 22, 2022 11:02:23 AM - economynext.com

ECONOMYNEXT – Politicians’ extreme forecasts of 15-hour power cuts or zero power cuts in cash-strapped Sri Lanka from June 1 onwards are baseless and unscientific, Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) Chairman Janaka Ratnayake said.

“Some politicians are making baseless, unscientific claims about the power situation. Recently, one said that we would have 15 hour power cuts. That is untrue. Another said that there will be no power cuts from June. That is also untrue. The PUCSL is the authority for electricity in this country, and we trust that the public will listen to only verified information,” said Ratnayake on Sunday (22) at a press conference.

Ratnayake further said the Norochcholai power plant that was being repaired would be back online on Sunday, enabling the smooth implementation of a new power cut schedule.
