“.. 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. …”

Full Steam Ahead as PLN Targets Geothermal Power

State-owned power producer Perusaahan Listrik Negara expects to generate an additional 135 megawatts of electricity from its three geothermal power plants that are set to go online this year as part of its plans to boost capacity across the nation.

Muhammad Sofyan, director of renewable energy at the state utility provider known as PLN, said on Friday that it expected to operate three new geothermal power plants this year. They include the 110 megawatt Ulubelu plant in Lampung, Sumatra; a 20 MW plant in Lahendong, North Sulawesi; and a 5 MW plant in Manggarai, West Flores.

Sofyan said the Ulubelu plant was expected to start operating by October. Pertamina Geothermal Energy will provide steam for the plant at a cost of 4.3 cents per kilowatt hour, he said.

PGE is a unit of state-owned oil and gas company Pertamina, and it provides steam at other PLN facilities in the country.

The Lahendong plant will similarly work with PGE, Sofyan said, and it should begin operating in February.

Sofyan said the Ulumbu plant would also become operational in February. PLN, he said, would provide the steam for the Ulumbu geothermal plant.

PLN is responsible for improving access to electricity and reducing power outages that are common in many parts of Indonesia.

The country’s electrification rate, which indicates what percentage of households have access to power, is forecast to increase to 75 percent this year from 71 percent last year, PLN said.

PLN is working to provide 20 MW of power from renewable energy sources on remote islands such as Mentawai, Riau and Bangka-Belitung.

Indonesia is an archipelago of more than 17,000 islands, and many volcanoes stretch across major islands such as Sumatra and Java along a range that makes it desirable to tap these geothermal sources for the production of electricity.

Renewable energy also includes production of electricity from water, wind and solar.

Indonesia, a nation of 240 million people, had power-generation capacity at as much as 28,462 MW as of the end of last year, according to PLN data.

Coal-powered plants account for around 42.2 percent of that capacity, with diesel-fired plants 23.7 percent, gas 22 percent, hydropower plants 6.7 percent and geothermal and other renewable energy at 5.4 percent.

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has ordered the Energy Ministry to boost the country’s electricity capacity by implementing a 20,000 MW fast-track program. The program aims to boost the nation’s electrification rate to 80.24 percent by 2014.

Late last month, Yudhoyono inaugurated three coal-fired plants and broke ground on the upgrade of an oil refinery, facilities that are intended to help the country cope with rapidly rising demand for fuel and electricity.

Yudhoyono launched three power plants, two in Banten province and one in Central Java, via teleconference. The three plants have a total production capacity of 1,600 MW and are expected to consume 6.5 million tons of coal annually.
