There could be a power crisis in 2018, Power Deputy Minister Ajith P. Perera stated yesterday (Wednesday 20th).

“The Sampur coal power plant is to be completed by 2017 according to the long term construction plan. But it couldn’t be completed due to lots of reasons,” he said.

“The coal power plants cannot fulfil the electricity requirement in 2018 because of the increasing demand,” he said.

He said that as a result the Ministry was considering renewable energy sources.
