The Jaffna Peninsula was linked with the National Grid after a lapse of 20 years.

The official ceremony to mark this occasion took place today at Killinochchi under the patronage of President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

A Ceylon Electricity Board official said over 121 thousand electricity consumers in the province will benefit by the project and plans are underway to open 24 Mega Watt thermal power station next year to cater to the soaring power requirement of the people in the peninsula.

CEB completed the erection of the Kilinochchi high voltage transmission lines and constructed 238 transmission towers from Vavuniya to Kilinochchi within a period of 2 years at a cost of 3.2 billion rupees.
