Despite earlier assurances that repairs were completed on the Gilimanuk sub-station and that Bali's frequent blackouts were at an end, State Electrical Board (PLN) Officials have once again had to make the embarrassing admission that power blackouts are back for at least the short term due to new mechanical problems.

Quoted in, a resident of Gianyar, Ketut Geriya, said: "I am disappointed with the service of PLN who said that there would be no more blackouts after January 8, 2010." Bemoaning that PLN has been unable to complete repairs over the past four months of rotating blackouts, Geriya added, "this is really embarrassing, especially when you consider that Bali is a tourism area where electricity is a Ďlive or die' issue."

Similar sentiments were sounded by an Australian tourist, James Martine, who complained: "There's no guarantee of electricity in Bali, the proof is in the current blackout. I am not comfortable with current lighting conditions. In my country (Australia), if there is going to be a blackout there is an announcement in the mass media, The lights do not suddenly die like they do in Bali."

The Public Relations Officer of the Bali PLN Agung Mastika, confirmed to the press that blackouts have been necessitated again because of mechanical problems at the Gilimanuk and Pemaron sub-stations. He regretfully admitted that due to the serious nature of the breakdowns, he was unable to predict when electrical supplies would return to normal.
