Lights for Jaffna round the clock

The entire Jaffna peninsula will be provided electricity without any interruption by mid September, according to officials of the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB), Jaffna.

The power supply in the peninsula is stopped in rotation for one hour during peak hours between 6 pm 10 pm daily due to the work being carried out, according to the Deputy General Manager of the CEB Jaffna, M. Muthuratnanthan. A private company called Northern Power is currently engaged in installing the turbines and other vital machinery in various parts in the peninsula as there was no electricity for the past several years.

The supply of electricity to the islet areas is nearing completion in the peninsula and the entire Jaffna peninsula region will receive an uninterrupted supply of electricity in one month Muthuratnanthan said. At present several small industries have started operations.

However, with the restoration of electricity in the region several mega projects are also expected to be launched under plans to be worked out by the Northern Development Task Force, which was set up three months ago by President Mahinda Rajapaksa under the Chairmanship of Minister of Social Services Douglas Devananda, the sources said.
