CEB Requests PUCSL to Verify Calculations with CEB and Ministry before Publishing

The Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) recently uploaded a document titled “Electricity Generation Costs” to its website, indicating what it deemed as unit cost of generation from six selected plants including Coal power. As per the report, the unit cost of oil fired thermal plants, which were among the most expensive sources of power generation, is 45% cheaper than that of the proposed Coal power plant at Sampur. As PUCSL calculations could mislead public and decision makers, CEB sent a letter to PUCSL highlighting the mistakes and requesting a correction. CEB had also given in its reply the actual unit costs from the same list of plants, which significantly differ from PUCSL figures.
