The CEB officials earlier warned about increase in power cut durations in the coming days with supply disruption of diesel to thermal power plants.

CEB, media Spokesman, Andrew Navamani, told EconomyNext on Friday (01), that with the water levels in reservoirs depreciating gradually, more weight will be put on thermal power plants to generate electricity.

“We are running out of diesel to operate thermal power plants,” Andrew Navamani, CEB spokesman told EconomyNext.

“And with the water levels dropping, it is possible that the power cut duration can increase again”
However, Navamani said, no decision has been taken yet on such an increase in power cut.
