Despite the many technical obstacles, a few developments totalling up to 50 MW have been proposed till September 2009. In October 2009, numerous cases were files over political interference connected with the approving of wind projects, leading to a complete halt in the wind power industry in Sri Lanka. The Ministry made allegations of wrongdoing in allocating energy licences, including the structuring of the wind power tariff. There were also allegations that energy licenses are being sold, similar to how car licenses have been sold.
From December 2009 to March 2010, permits for another 50 MW of projects were issued by the Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority (SLSEA), before concerns relating to the issuing of permits were raised again, leading to another deadlock in the industry. As of June 2010, issuing of permits for the development of private wind farms are currently stopped.
In July 2010, engineers at the Ceylon Electricity Board raised further concerns regarding the approval of private wind projects with extra high tariffs, presumably some of the highest tariffs in the world. A review of the current wind power tariff is expected to be carried out on the 12 of September 2010, after an agreed postponement
CEB projected that CEB need to go for Coal power to meet energy requirements. UPFA/CBK instead of doing it awarded diesel power plants for private companies in the agreement that they will buy back power from them.
UPFA awarded these license to their cronies and henchmen.
That why even Champika can t control those power mafia.
