“.. 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 pay more to renewable energy producers

Rangga D. Fadillah, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta, Thu, 10/13/2011

The government, state electricity firm PT PLN and businesspeople have agreed to increase fees paid for power produced from biomass, biogas and city waste.

The government hopes this breakthrough can make investment in the sector more appealing, the new, renewable energy and energy conservation director general at the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry, Kardaya Warnika, said Thursday.

According to a 2009 ministerial decree on electricity rates, PLN is obliged to buy power produced from biomass, biogas and city waste (connected to the medium voltage) at Rp 656 per kilowatt hour (kWh) in Java and Bali, Rp 787 per kWh in Sumatra and Sulawesi, Rp 853 per kWh in Kalimantan, West Nusa Tenggara and East Nusa Tenggara and Rp 984 kWh in Maluku and Papua.

For electricity connected to the low-voltage grid, the prices are Rp 1,004 per kWh in Java and Bali, Rp 1,205 per kWh in Sumatra and Sulawesi, Rp 1,305 per kWh in Kalimantan, West Nusa Tenggara and East Nusa Tenggara and Rp 1,506 in Maluku and Papua.

Under the new agreement, in Java and Bali, PLN will pay Rp 945 per kWh for power produced from biomass and biogas, Rp 1,050 per kWh for power produced from city waste using zero-waste technology and Rp 850 per kWh for power generated using landfill.

In Kalimantan, Sulawesi, West Nusa Tenggara and East Nusa Tenggara PLN will now pay  Rp 1,170, Rp 1,260 and Rp 1,020 per kWh. Meanwhile, in Maluku and Papua, PLN has agreed to pay Rp 1,267.5, Rp 1,365 and Rp 1,105 per kWh.

“The price change will be included into the revision of the 2009 ministerial decree on electricity rates,” Kardaya said during a discussion at his office in Jakarta.
