Electricity tariffs: Relief for faith-based establishments
A relief will be provided for electricity tariffs charged from faith-based establishments, revealed Chairman of the Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) Janaka Ratnayake.
Accordingly, faith-based establishments consuming more than 180 power units on a monthly basis will be shifted from the ‘charity’ category to the ‘common work’ category, thereby reducing the charge from Rs. 65 to Rs. 35 per unit, he noted.
The revision will be considered effective from August 10, 2022.
Nevertheless, religious establishments consuming less than 180 power units are bound to pay their bills the usual, Ratnayake further added.
