Participating at a media briefing held in Colombo yesterday the Minister said that the production of hydro electricity was unusually decreasing due to the natural disasters or climatic changes that are currently prevalent or could take place in the future.

Therefore, the Minister appealed to the people to use electricity sparingly.
