Plans to formulate a new policy with respect to the power sector

Minister Ravi Karunanayake has referred to plans to formulate a new policy in the future with respect to the electricity field. The Minister made this reference at a discussion held at the Ministry of Power, Energy and Business Development.

A discussion with Mini Solar Power Industrial and Suppliers Association and the Sunithya Energy Authority was held under the patronage of Minister Ravi Karunanayake. Discussions centred on the problems encountered by the Mini Solar Power Industrial and Suppliers in the acquisition of land, in the retention of solar power, seeking approval in the launch of power generating projects and securing loan facilities.

Minister Ravi Karunanayake said that what they needed was to use the local resources to the maximum. There was not a single programme for the generation of power for three years but mentioned that only solar power from roofs was gathered. He said that this problem would be sorted out to a considerable extent and it was planned to introduce a new policy in this respect in March this year.
