“.. Nuclear Power Revealed

So let me tell you what else they did. They just showed you what's wrong with nuclear power. "Safe to the maximum," they said. "Our devices are strong and cannot fail." But they did. They are no match for Gaia.

It seems that for more than 20 years, every single time we sit in the chair and speak of electric power, we tell you that hundreds of thousands of tons of push/pull energy on a regular schedule is available to you. It is moon-driven, forever. It can make all of the electricity for all of the cities on your planet, no matter how much you use. There's no environmental impact at all. Use the power of the tides, the oceans, the waves in clever ways. Use them in a bigger way than any designer has ever put together yet, to power your cities. The largest cities on your planet are on the coasts, and that's where the power source is. Hydro is the answer. It's not dangerous. You've ignored it because it seems harder to engineer and it's not in a controlled environment. Yet, you've chosen to build one of the most complex and dangerous steam engines on Earth - nuclear power.

We also have indicated that all you have to do is dig down deep enough and the planet will give you heat. It's right below the surface, not too far away all the time. You'll have a Gaia steam engine that way, too. There's no danger at all and you don't have to dig that far. All you have to do is heat fluid, and there are some fluids that boil far faster than water. So we say it again and again. Maybe this will show you what's wrong with what you've been doing, and this will turn the attitudes of your science to create something so beautiful and so powerful for your grandchildren. Why do you think you were given the moon? Now you know.

This benevolent Universe gave you an astral body that allows the waters in your ocean to push and pull and push on the most regular schedule of anything you know of. Yet there you sit enjoying just looking at it instead of using it. It could be enormous, free energy forever, ready to be converted when you design the methods of capturing it. It's time. …”

PLN to Open Bids For 83 Power Plants

The Jakarta Globe, Reva Sasistiya, January 16, 2009 

State electric utility company PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara, or PLN, will open tenders in February for a second “fast-track” program to build 83 power plants that would supply a total of more than 10,000 megawatts to the national grid by 2014, a PLN official said on Thursday. 

The first construction tender would be for a $2.57 billion coal-fired plant in Pemalang, Central Java Province, with a 2,000 MW capacity, Bambang Praptono, PLN’s director of planning and strategy, said. 

“Some major companies have shown interest, including Japan’s Marubeni Corp., German’s Siemens Corp. and France’s Areva,” Bambang said. 

Indonesia desperately needs additional generation capacity to deal with the frequent blackouts brought about by PLN’s low reserve margin of 20 percent, the amount by which capacity exceeds maximum demand. 

PLN wants independent power producers to supply a majority of the planned additional capacity, said Jacobus Purwono, the Ministry of Energy’s director general of electricity. PLN expects to handle only 30 percent of the new capacity. 

“We want IPPs to take the lead in the second fast-track program,” Purwono said. 

The project is expected to be completed in 2014, with a total installed capacity of 11,144 MW, 68 percent of which would be provided by coal, 19 percent from geothermal sources, 10 percent from gas and hydropower for the rest. PLN said 18 plants would be in Java, while the rest would be spread across Indonesia. 

PLN’s first fast-track program began in 2006 with total expected construction costs of $4.5 billion. The program is expected to provide an additional 10,000 MW of capacity when it goes online in 2010. PLN said total capital expenditures for 2009 may reach Rp 46.37 trillion ($4.17 billion). 

Previously, 152 IPPs had shown interest in the program, but only 16 successfully obtained funding. Purwono said the government had yet to decide on whether it was going to guarantee loans used to fund the construction of private power plants . 

Indonesia’s electricity demand has been growing at an annual rate of about 7 percent for the past five years and is expected to rise to 9 percent per year over the next decade. Of the total installed capacity of 29,422 MW, PLN supplies 85.7 percent and 16 IPPs contribute the rest.
