State Power Board Says Bali Power Grid is Under Severe Strain.

(10/21/2007) Bali is facing a growing threat of severe power shortages following the loss of 130 megawatts from the Bali power grid.

Wayan Redika, a spokesman for the Bali State Power Board (PLN-Bali) said the power shortage dates from September 2, 2007, when repairs were carried out the East Java Gilimanuk Power Station.

The spokesman estimates that the current Bali power grid can only supply 430 megawatts of electricity against an estimated peak consumption requirement of 439 megawatts.

The bulk of Bali's power supply is provided via submarine cables connecting the island to various power production plants on Java.
