The Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) has recommended that the province undertake a detailed academic review of solar energy and wind power as alternative power supplies in Bali.
Beritabali.com says the DPRD-Bali sees the proposed study as essential to measure the viability of solar and wind-drive energy generation and in order to avoid repeating situations such as the stalled wind-power project on Nusa Penida island.
The chairman of Commission III of the DPRD-Bali, Putu Agus Suradnyana, told the press that the House is basically in support of plans to develop solar energy that is environmentally friendly, but any eventual plans must be realistic in their scope.
Saying he hoped that the government would move beyond merely undertaking feasibility studies, Suradnyana said: "The problem of wind power has been a long standing proposal with no visible results to date. If we see England or Germany it is because this is their own technology. If this is new technology I agree."
Conscious of Bali's severe power shortage, the Parliamentarian called on the government of Bali to be more focused on the Bali Crossing project that will connect Bali to the Java power grid. [See: Bali Electricity to Go Sky High].
