Addressing representatives of 22 trade unions of the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) yesterday, Mr. Siyambalapitiya said the government would focus its attention on renewable energy and try to phase out the use of costly thermal power.

“We will not encourage the setting up of any more coal power plants either. Discussions are underway to convert the proposed 500 MW coal power plant funded by India and 1,200 MW coal power plant funded by Japan. We have also initiated discussions with a number of countries, including Japan Australia and China, to set up solar power plants in the south,” - Minister Ranjith Siyambalapitiya, 29/07/2016
