About LECO

Lanka Electricity Company was set up in 1983 as a state owned company registered under the Companies Act. The company was assigned the endeavor of operating the dilapidated electricity networks once owned to the local authorities and taken over. A group of engineers lead by our forefather Mr. H.S. Subasinghe took over this mammoth tasks, then thought as an impossibility. The company which recorded a humble beginning, attracted Asian Development bank funds and converted the networks hands over to them, efficient, using modern technology. The electricity losses of these areas once as high as one forth the purchases were reduced below international best values.
