Feb 07, 2020 (LBO) – The Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL), the electricity regulator is seeking an investigation report on the recent power outage from Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB), a statement said.

Issuing a statement the PUCSL has asked the CEB to submit the said report on or before 12th February 2020.
