“.. 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. …”

Jakarta Luxury Homes Face Electricity Cap

Having failed to meet the demand for electricity, the state power utility’s latest solution to the rolling blackouts afflicting Greater Jakarta includes cracking down on what it calls excessive consumption by a small number of upscale homes.

In a 10-day program that could begin this weekend, PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara will install “load controller” devices in 200 homes that will automatically cut the power if they use more than a certain amount at peak periods.

“Right now we are still gathering information, and we still need to purchase more devices, but we are expecting to start our house visits at the end of this week,” Purnomo Willy, PLN’s general manager for distribution for Jakarta and Tangerang, told the Jakarta Globe.

“We are targeting homes with power usage of more than 30 kilowatts.”

Meanwhile, 300 businesses were also likely to face tough restrictions on their power use, with PLN saying they should run on their own generators at peak times.

Greater Jakarta faces a daily power deficit of 170 megawatts that has forced PLN to ration power across the city and its suburbs since early this month. The household-monitoring scheme will only save about 3 MW per day, and the devices are expected to cost Rp 1 billion ($106,000).

Nonetheless, PLN is moving forward with the plan, Purnomo said, adding that the areas to be targeted include Pondok Indah, Menteng and Kebayoran Baru.

“We will ask for homeowners’ compliance. I know for sure some will resist or complain, but we are used to it now,” he said.

And they are likely to become more accustomed to it soon. One homeowner, Dien Soeprapto of Pondok Indah, said she was angry about PLN’s service.

“We always pay every month. We are good customers,” she said. “The rolling blackouts are already a disservice to my home and my business. We are 10 years behind. We are worse than Vietnam.”

Purnomo said PLN hoped the load controllers would force homes to reduce their power consumption by up to 30 percent.

State Enterprises Minister Mustafa Abubakar on Thursday said PLN would have to go even further to conserve electricity.

“We are going to impose efficiency measures in industrial areas in Pulogadung and Tangerang by urging 300 businesses to switch some of their electricity use to generators” during peak times, he said, during a surprise inspection of the Cawang power station.

The station has been closed for repairs since a fire there in late September disrupted service and eventually triggered the current spate of blackouts.

“We also urge malls and shopping centers to switch to generators, and they will have to increase room temperatures from 23 degrees to 25,” Mustafa said.

“There will also be socialization [programs] for households to start saving electricity.”
