“.. 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. …”

ADB may help finance PLN transmission lines

Alfian, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Sat, 12/12/2009 1:01 PM

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has indicated that it will provide loans for state power utility PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) to help the company finance three major power grid construction projects requiring about US$980 million.

The three projects are the 500 kilovolt (kV) Java-Bali power transmission line, the 275 kV West Kalimantan-Sarawak power transmission line, and the 500 kV Sumatra-Melaka power transmission line, ADB said in a statement published on Friday.

"We are very happy to cooperate with PLN in projects that will strengthen the *PLN* system," director of the energy and water division at the ADB's Southeast Asia Department, Anthony Jude, said as quoted in the statement.

According to ADB, the Java-Bali transmission line will require $340 million. The West Kalimantan-Sarawak and the Sumatra Melaka transmission lines will require $150 million and $490 million, respectively.

The statement did not explain how much ADB would contribute to the three projects. However, in an earlier interview, Rehan Kausar, the ADB's infrastructure specialist with its Indonesia resident mission said they might provide $100 million for the Java-Bali transmission line.

The Java-Bali transmission line will facilitate power supply from the Paiton power plant in East Java and a floating power plant in Denpasar, Bali, to surrounding areas. PLN planning and technology director Bambang Praptono said the latter transmission line could use either tower transmission or deep-sea cables. He added that the company would conduct feasibility studies in January 2010.

"We expect to complete the studies in six months," he said. The transmission systems are expected to help the existing power system to meet the high growth of electricity demand in the Java-Bali system which is about seven percent a year.

The Sumatra-Melaka and the West Kalimantan-Sarawak power transmission lines are covered by an agreement signed between ASEAN countries. In 1997 ASEAN countries agreed to cooperate in developing 11 cross-border transmission points allowing them to exchange power during peak periods. These interconnections are expected to be working by 2015.

With the regard to the Sumatra-Melaka Peninsula power transmission line, PLN had announced that the company and Malaysia's utility company Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) had agreed to transfer up to 300 megawatts of electricity to each other at their different peak periods. PLN said the interconnection would enable the company to reduce its oil-based fuel consumption during peak hours which will cut the company production cost by about Rp 1,300 per kilowatt hour (kWh).

Bambang said that PLN would begin the preparation for the three power transmission line projects in 2010 and expected the projects to be operational by 2015.
