However, they will not be able to sell the electricity in this process. The Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) has decided to remove legal barriers to the generation of electricity through solar energy. It was therefore proposed to exclude from obtaining a licence to sell electricity to the national grid electricity consumers who produce small-scale power plants through rooftop solar power plants. Prosumer should ensure that payments of all charges to be paid are made within specified time frames, in order to prevent the EE system, including the power supply, from being cut off from the grid. In case of non-correction after an improvement period, the Prosumer account will be permanently closed, which will result in the termination of the follow-up contract. As a result, the prosumer is removed from the scheme. The decision was taken at a time when promoting electricity generation from renewable sources has become a priority for the Sri Lankan government and individuals. The government is implementing "Soorya Bala Sangramaya", a solar power generation program, to encourage people to produce electricity for themselves. Under this program, any household or building owner with a valid electricity account can export the electricity produced by the solar installation to the national grid under the three systems mentioned net metering, Net Accounting and Net Plus.
