Minister of Environment Mahinda Amaraweera says there is no guarantee of a continuous supply of electricity.
Speaking to media in Kandy the Minister said the reason for the present situation is the failure to practically implement the renewable energy programmes that have been discussed.
Minister Amaraweera noted the Minister of Energy had claimed fuel will be provided for a week to generate electricity while the Minister of Power claimed electricity will be supplied when fuel is provided.
He added however there is no guarantee.
The Minister claimed no one can be blamed for the present situation adding it is the result of the failure to formulate a programme in this regard.
Minister Amaraweera said in the “Vistas of Prosperity and Splendour” national policy framework it was stated that renewable energy will be increased to 70 percent by 2030.
He added it is a difficult goal that must be achieved.
The Minister claimed even with the necessary funds solar panels cannot be installed at present due to the dollar shortage adding if the programme was initiated seven years ago as planned, solutions can be provided to several issues.
