The Ministry of Power and Renewable Energy requests the general public to use electricity sparingly as the power demand has increased due to high temperatures.

Media Spokesperson of the Ministry Sulakshana Jayawardana said that water levels of reservoirs used for hydro power generation have also decreased due to dry weather.

Meanwhile, Astronomer Anura C Perera said that deforestation, increase in construction activity and vehicle usage were reasons for the increase in temperatures.
