“.. 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 expects Rp 7.2t in net profits this year

Nani Afrida , The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Sat, 11/28/2009 1:06 PM

PT PLN, currently exercising rotating blackouts in part of the country to manage electricity problems, is about to post hefty net profits this year.

Having long sunk in losses, PLN expects to return with a bang with full-year profits estimated to reach a handsome Rp 7.2 trillion (US$760 million), president director Fahmi Mochtar said Thursday.

The figure is a stark contrast to the Rp 12.3 trillion and Rp 6 trillion losses in 2008 and 2007 respectively.

Fahmi said as of June this year, the company had posted Rp 6.25 trillion in net profits.

Among the contributing factors was the government's decision to award the company a 5 percent margin in the distribution of electricity where the fare was subsidized by the state budget.

Fahmi said the margin was expected to increase operating profits to Rp 14 trillion by the year-end. By comparison, the company posted Rp 3.6 trillion in operating losses.

He said another factor was its efficiency programs such as converting fuel to natural gas to fire its power plants. Its steam-fired power plants were also working well without much weather disturbance unlike previous years.

According to Fahmi, between 2009 and 2015, PLN would need at least Rp 80 trillion per year for investment to meet rising power demand.

"Today, only 65 percent of Indonesia has electricity," he said. "We are trying to increase more power to areas lacking electricity access such as in regions of Papua and West Nusa Tenggara."

By 2014, PLN aims to boost electricity circulation to at least 80 percent of the country.

Since1998, Indonesia has experienced an electricity crisis because PLN's power capacity cannot meet the ever-increasing demand for electricity, causing power deficits and frequent blackouts across the country.

The condition is better in Jakarta than many other regions. However, the capital also experiences problems, such as the explosion of PLN's largest electricity substations, Cawang Baru, on Sept. 29, when fire razed two output transformers.

Fahmi said the Cawang Baru substation would be fully restored by Dec. 19 at the latest.

"The restoration is progressing well," he said. "Now there are no longer blackouts in Jakarta.

"By Dec. 29, Jakarta will have more electricity, although the supply is not enough *to meet the demand*."

Currently the government is working on the 10,000 megawatt electricity crash program to help speed up resolve electricity shortage in the country.

In 2009, PLN expects to produce 136,000 gigawatt-hours of electricity, 6.6 percent higher than the 127,600 gigawatt-hours produced in 2008.

Of the total production, 17.8 percent will be generated by oil-fired power plants, down from 23 percent last year.
