Hope this problem goes away soon
For more than a week, the electricity for the daily needs of the people in Karimunjawa has not turned on again. This is because the components in the Diesel Power Plant (PLTD) unit Karimunjawa experienced technical problems.
One resident of Djati (30) Rt6 Rw2 Karimunjawa Village said, since December 30, 2014 and until now Tuesday (6/1) electricity in Karimunjawa has not flowed to the public. To carry out daily activities and needs using electricity, his party admitted that they had to use a personal generator and spend quite a bit of money.
“For more than a week, the electricity has gone out, we use generators to turn on the lights and other needs, and this is very disturbing to the community if it is not handled immediately because it requires quite a lot of funds to buy gasoline,” said Djati on Tuesday (6/1).
To turn on the electricity using a generator, Djati admitted that he had to spend as much as Rp. 48 thousand per night. “The liter of gasoline here is 12 thousand, and per night requires a minimum of 4 liters of gasoline. And even then it can only be lit for 10 hours “, he explained.
Djati and other Karimunjawa communities affected by the lack of electricity hope that the government and related agencies will immediately implement the quick and best solutions for electricity problems in Karimunjawa. So that people in the outer islands of Jepara can also enjoy electricity for their daily needs.
Meanwhile, Soleh as the Manager of PLTD Karimunjawa when confirmed said that currently in Karimunjawa there were problems with components in PLTD. So that electricity cannot flow to the community. “The dynamo star and monicon components are having problems, we have coordinated this problem with the Jepara ESDM service to immediately find a solution,” he said.
Furthermore, Soleh explained, currently his party is looking for spare parts for the problematic PLTD component and coordinating with technicians in Surabaya to handle the problem. “We have coordinated with the technicians and are looking for spare parts, hopefully this week we will get spare parts and we will immediately bring them to Karimunjawa so that the electricity problem in Karimunjawa can be resolved immediately. And hopefully the weather conditions in the waters of Jepara can also be friendly, so that the handling is not delayed and can be repaired immediately. “, he concluded.
