Ravi mediates to expedite staggering CEB projects

Power and Energy Minister Ravi Karunanayake has focussed his attention on the progress of CEB ongoing projects.

The minister had met the CEB officials at the Ministry yesterday and discussed the progress of these projects. He called for a detailed report from the officials regarding the reasons for the inability to add the capacity of completed projects to the national power grid.

He noted that in addition to the house mounted solar panel project commenced in 2015, so far no other power project has been initiated, adding that if the CEB is to transform itself into a profit making entity, it should focus on renewable power sources. Therefore, he said focus should be paid to the acceleration of the ongoing projects.

A large group of CEB officials and staff participated in this meeting.
