(2/8/2014)

The general manager of the State Power Board (PLN) for Bali, Ida Bagus G. Mardawa, warned on Monday, February 3, 2014, that the increasing power demands of Bali can only be met if Bali can establish new energy sources not linked to fossil fuels.

As reported by Beritabali.com, Mardawa says current peak demand for electricity in Bali reaches 721 megawatts from a total available supply of 820 megawatts. At the same time, demand for more electrical power increases with each passing year, with most power flowing into the heavily populated tourism centers in Bali's south.

To meet growing power demands PLN must constantly be seeking new energy supplies for Bali. In Mardawa's opinion, Bali will only be able to satisfy its appetite for electrical power in a manner that is dependable and affordable if new power sources not driven by fossil fuels can be created.

PLN is currently working on the installation of new submarine cabling that will add 400 megawatts of new power for Bali. In North Bali, a new steam-powered coal-driven electrical generation plant at Celukan Bawang is currently providing 135 megawatts of additional power with another 270 promised once that power plant becomes totally operational. In addition, work is progressing on the "Bali Crossing" - the world tallest high-power line suspended over the straits between Java and Bali that will be capable of carrying 1,800 megawatts of power from Java to Bali.

"In addition a geothermal power (PLTG) generation plant will be built at Sanggaran with an output of 200 megawatts. There is also the chance of using geothermal energy from a plant in Bedugul. The support of the people is needed for these projects, for without power it will be difficult for Bali to develop in the future.
