Hydro-power generation a challenge despite rains


2017-08-13

The Ministry of Power and Renewable Energy has stated that even though the water levels of certain reservoirs have risen with the recent showers being experienced in those areas, hydro-power generation still remained a challenge.

However, Ministry Spokesman Sulakshana Jayawardana informed NewsRadio that the daily electricity generation was being continued nonstop.

Meanwhile, the deactive third generator of the Norochcholai Power Plant has been reinstated as of now.

Sulakshana Jayawardana added that the Chinese expert team which had arrived to inspect the deactivated generator had submitted a report to the Ministry as well.
