The Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) has made the decision to consult the public before making any changes to the proposed energy pricing for 2022.
With the introduction of the suggested pricing, the Ceylon Electricity Board has recommended increasing its revenue by 82 percent.
The Commission advises the Treasury to pay Rs. 60 billion as a subsidy to the Ceylon Electricity Board but the PUCSL feels that the maximum revenue rise shouldn’t be more than 57 percent.
The Commission plans to carry out the stakeholder consultation according to section 17 of the Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka Act No. 35 of 2002 and in accordance with the process deemed appropriate by the Commission for Stakeholder Consultation,
