Expect power disruptions between 5.30 PM & 9.30 PM today: CEB

The Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) has informed the public that there will be island-wide disruptions to the power supply between 5.30 p.m. and 9.30 p.m. today (07).

According to the officials, the power cut is expected to last for a period of one hour.

The cause for the outages is the breakdown of a generator at the Kelanitissa power plant as well as the high electricity demand.

Owing to this, many areas including Colombo and suburbs had experienced sporadic power cuts until 9.30 p.m. last night (Jan. 06).
