සූර්ය බලශක්ති සංග්‍රාමයක්
BBC Sandeshaya 2017 අප්‍රේල් 3

ශ්‍රී ලංකාවේ නිවාස දසලක්ෂයක වහල සූර්ය බලාගාර බවට පත් කරනු ලැබීම ආණ්ඩුවේ බලාපොරොත්තුව බව විදුලිබල හා පුනර්ජනනීය බලශක්ති අමාත්‍ය රන්ජිත් සියඹලාපිටිය පවසයි.

දැනටමත් මෙම ව්‍යාපෘතිය යටතේ සූර්ය බලාගාර බවට පත් කර ඇති නිවාස තුළින් මෙගාවෝට් 30 ක පමණ විදුලිය ජනනය කරමින් පවතින බව ඇමතිවරයා කියා සිටියේය.

ආණ්ඩුවේ ඉල්ලකය එම ප්‍රමාණය මෙගාවෝට් 1000ක් දක්වා වැඩිකිරීම බව ඔහු සඳහන් කළේය.

විදුලිබල හා පුනර්ජනනීය බලශක්ති අමාත්‍ය රන්ජිත් සියඹලාපිටිය ඒ බව කියා සිටියේ බීබීසී සංදේශය සමඟ පැවැත්වූ සාකච්ඡාවක දීය.

සම්පුර්ණ සාකච්ඡාව සහිත වීඩියෝව ඉහතින් අමුණා ඇත.

Listen to the minister- http://www.bbc.com/sinhala/sri-lanka-39485871

government should aim to produce full day time demand from solar power.I think roof tops and reservoir areas sufficient for this purpose. presently only high power demand customers are installing solar power.though it is good as a country the CEB losing some revenue.  The CEB  and government should aim to provide solar power units to low end customer because this segment is the burden  as they are on subsidy. Subsided sector should be given priority in this surya bala sangramaya.  we can save hydro power for night demand. i am using a system which generate around 160-170 units a day  which is sufficient for my home. it covers only small area of my roof and if i cover whole area of the roof with solar panels it can generate 10 times more power. that means it can power 10 more houses.our country do not need fossil fuels if we use solar power . at present we are exporting 99 percent purity silica quartz to china and japan. this is main raw material for producing solar panels.Government should encourage investors or CEB to use the raw material to produce Solar cells in sri lanka.

Listen to the Minister's speech. Link given in my post. He says you can now rent out your roof top to a solar company & get paid monthly. You don't need spend a cent.

Otherside of the coin!!!!
No unsolicited tenders
Tuesday, April 11, 2017 - 01:00

Amali Mallawaarachchi

The Power and Energy Ministry has informed the Board of Investments (BOI) that the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) will not procure power through unsolicited tender procedures.

“The Board of Investments and other institutions bring proposals on power project investors. Even though these projects had received the BOI approval, the CEB by law, cannot accept these power projects,” Power and Energy Ministry Secretary Dr. B.M.S. Batagoda said, adding that it would be in violation of the Sri Lanka Electricity Act.

“There has been a round of meetings in this regard and we have made our position clear to the relevant parties,” he explained. Dr. Batagoda also said, the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) has to abide by the existing law, which is to procure power through competitive bidding only. He also said the CEB will always have to consider the least cost option when purchasing power, for the benefit of the public.

Speaking to the Daily News, Dr. Batagoda said, the CEB has to follow the Sri Lanka Electricity Act when it comes to purchasing power from the private sector.

“Mainly, according to the Electricity Act, the CEB cannot procure electricity from power projects or any such thing without a competitive tender procedure,” Dr. Batagoda said.

“Secondly, any power project has to be included in the long-term generation plan. This 20-year plan has to be updated every two years. In the 20-year plan, we must identify which are least cost generation plans,” he explained.

“We have to consider what power projects have the lowest cost and subsequently be beneficial to the country. This long term generation plan then has to be approved by the Board of CEB, then the Power and Energy Ministry and finally by the Public Utility Commission,” Dr. Batagoda further explained.

He also pointed out that the CEB now gets the approval from the Committee on Economic Management headed by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe for the long term plan as well, before sending it to the Public Utility Commission.

The CEB can procure from the private sector power providers who are included in this long term plan only, Dr. Batagoda also pointed out.

“The CEB cannot procure from or issue tender for any power project which is not included in the long-term plan by law,” he added.

The only exception will be if a certain power project is given by a foreign government to the government of Sri Lanka, Dr. Batagoda said.
