CEB quarterly loss Rs 24.4B – Ravi K
United National Party Parliamentarian Ravi Karunanayake, during his adjournment motion, stated that the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) had incurred a loss of Rs 8.4 billion in the month of February. He also stated that the CEB had incurred a loss of Rs 8.1 billion in January and a loss of 7.9 billion in March. He challenged the government to check if his statistics were wrong.
He also stated that the Sampur Power Plant agreement was signed without the CEB being aware of the scope of activities. He added that the former Minister of Power had mentioned that such an agreement was detrimental to the interests of Sri Lanka.
He said the CEB was not permitting solar, wind and mini hydro projects thus it was not helping to generate a cheaper energy source.
Karunanayake’s challenges could not be clarified and debated as Parliament adjourned abruptly due to there being no quorum.

So, can anybody guess what Ravi Karunanayake will be telling to the parliament if government/CEB begin charging the real cost of an electricity unit to the consumers?
It’s easy Indra, Ravi K is a big investor mini hydro power projects which support the CEB network. Irrespective of these mini hydro projects supply power or not, these investors are paid stand-by charges.
Mr Ravi K is at corruption max. he has the licenece to operate al private buses to the north. The private bus network in the Jaffna peninsula belongs to him.
