PUCSL requests to reduce electricity consumption during peak hours | Sri Lanka News


The Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) requested electricity consumers and public and private institutions to take measures to reduce the electricity demand during the examination schedule and not cut off the electricity during the examination period and at night.

PUCSL Chairman Janaka Rathnayaka said the Examinations Commissioner General had informed the commission to take action not to impose power cuts during the examination period and at night as the candidates would face inconvenience and difficulty.

In response to that, the PUCSL made recommendations to the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) to avoid power cuts so as to successfully conduct the advanced level examination.

However, the CEB informed the PUCSL that they were unable to implement the recommendations as requested. Therefore, the PUCSL pointed out that it is the responsibility of the government and the CEB to act without letting the candidates continue with the advanced-level exams without any difficulty.

The PUCSL requested that the electricity consumers and public and private institutions take measures to reduce the electricity demand during the examination period for the children.

The Commission hopes that all parties will assist in managing the electricity demand and providing the necessary electricity supply during the examination period.

They said the electricity consumption can be reduced by not using air conditioners, especially during exam periods (peak hours). (Chaturanga Pradeep Samarawickrama)
