The Ceylon Electricity Board states that power cuts may be affected if expected showers do not make land fall during the forthcoming days in October.

Chairman of the CEB Dr. Wimaladharma Abeywickrama speaking to our news team said that although minor showers were being experienced in catchment areas at present, substantial rainfalls were required for the generation of electricity.

At present 85 percent of the electricity synchronized to the national grid is being produced by thermal power plants.

According to the Chairman of the CEB, owing to this the board incurs a loss of around 200 million rupees per day.
