The Ceylon Electricity Board informed yesterday that there would be two hour power-cuts islandwide starting today due to technical faults at the Kelewarapitiya – West Coast and the Puttlam – Lak Wijaya power plants.

However, the CEB is yet to confirm the exact timings and locations of the power cuts.

We spoke to the CEB this morning to find out more details and were told by a senior official that power cuts would occur in chosen areas for a period of two hours each.

The official added that some of these power cuts could occur during the night time aswell.

We also spoke to Minister of Power and Energy Patali Champika Ranawaka regarding the power cuts.

He stated that the timings of the power cuts would be informed to the public either via SMS or through the media.
