State electricity company PT Perusahaan Listrik


Negara will rent hundreds of diesel and oil-powered
electricity generators to alleviate power shortages in
some outlying provinces.

Renting the generators was an “emergency


measure” to help quickly resolve the shortages, PLN
president director Dahlan Iskan told the House of
Representatives’ Commission VII, which oversees
energy issues, on Thursday. Developing new plants
would take at least two years, he said.

Rather than renting generators, Fabby said PLN


should build small-scale hydropower plants in areas
with the most severe electricity deficits.

“It will be a more sustainable plan for PLN,


considering the construction will take only a year and
they won’t cost much to operate,” Fabby said.

Meanwhile, Dahlan said PLN also planned to buy


more power from independent generators. In
February, PLN plans to buy 231 MW of electricity
from private producers, he said.
