Bali Faces More Blackouts Says PLN
State power provider PLN said on Tuesday that it was unable to provide sufficient electricity to Bali and asked people to turn off their lights to conserve usage.
PLN chief Dadan Koerniadipoera said Bali’s many hotels should operate on their own generators at peak times.
He said homes should turn off as many lights as possible during the hours of 6pm and 9pm to relive pressure on the power grid.
The announcement comes as many parts of Bali were plunged into darkness last week in a widespread outage not explained by PLN. The heavily indebted state firm promised last year that after months of rolling blackouts Bali would experience a lesser number this year.Filed under: Headlines
