Why did this have to happen to my area? Hopefully the government will respond quickly to the electricity problem in Karimunjawa. Do not let it drag on, because this is related to the livelihood of many people.
PLTD should be replaced with PLTG because the purchase of diesel, which is diesel fuel at a price without subsidies, is burdensome for the local district government
Semarang (ANTARA News) – Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo asked the diesel power plant (PLTD) used to supply electricity in the Karimunjawa Islands, Jepara Regency, to be replaced with a gas-fired power plant (PLTG), which is considered more efficient.
“PLTD should be replaced with PLTG because the purchase of diesel, which is diesel fuel at a price without subsidies, is burdensome for the local district government,” he said in Semarang, Thursday.
According to Ganjar, in the Karimunjawa Islands there will be an electricity crisis in the near future if the PLTG is not prepared from now on.
“Now I just have to ask PLN to prepare the PLTG which is planned to be carried out this January, I am still checking with the ESDM Office whether it is ready or not,” he said.
If PLN has not prepared PLTG, he said, then electricity in Karimunjawa will be disrupted again because the Jepara Regency Government does not have the budget to buy diesel.
Head of the Department of Energy and Mineral Resources, Teguh Dwi Paryono, added that the plan to replace PLTD to PLTG in the Karimunjawa Islands is in the process of discussing with related parties.
Previously, Ganjar hoped that the supply of diesel fuel for diesel power plants in the Karimunjawa Islands, Jepara Regency, would be stable so that it would not disrupt electricity supply in the local area.
Ganjar admitted that he had contacted PT Pertamina regarding the issue regarding the supply of diesel fuel to the Karimunjawa Islands.
Previously, Ganjar had also instructed the local Energy and Mineral Resources Office to immediately coordinate with related parties to resolve the problem of electricity supply in the Karimunjawa Islands.
