Media spokesman of the Ministry of Power Sulakshana Jayawardena said that electricity supply was restored to the affected areas last night itself.
The power supply to several areas was disrupted due to a breakdown in the transmission line from Kotmale to Biyagama.
The ministry said that the outages were caused by breakdowns in sub-stations at Sapugaskanda, Kurunegala, Kiribathkumbura, Peradeniya, Kandy, Gampola, Biyagama, Kotugoda, Habarana, Galle, Matara, Pannipitiya, Ratmalana, Sri Jayawardenapura Kotte, Athurugiriya and Kosgama.
