Energy crisis has reached its peak in Sri Lanka. Day by day need for energy in Sri Lanka is escalating, but the supply is insufficient. Nowadays Sri Lankans are enjoying electricity bills (??). In whole Asia, Sri Lankans are paying highest bills than any other nations. Sri Lankan government is seeking for several alternatives and come up with several ways to solve this problem out.
- Coal Plant
- Import Electricity
Government has taken initiations to build Coal power plant in Trincomalee and Nuraicholai. It is a long term project so we can’t be expecting it to start and work from tomorrow. Also it’s strongly opposed by environmentalist that it’ll cause harm to the environment, but do we have an alternative other than accepting this project?
Latest hot news in energy sector of Sri Lanka is Electricity import from India. Indian government has agreed to offer power from Madurai, Tamil Nadu. Cables under the sea will be built and reception center are expected to build in Anuradhapura and Mannar. Government says it’ll bring down the cost for the electricity production. Feasible studies are undergoing and constructions are expected to start by next month.
I’m pretty sure; India will love this initiation as they can boost their influence in Sri Lanka.
