Electricity supply has not been able to handle the growth in new development in Bali.

Electricity supply in Bali has once again been disrupted. The supply from the Gilimanuk Gas and Steam Power Plant had to be reduced by 130 megawatt due to maintenance operations.

The Gilimanuk Power Plant will be under maintenance from October 10 until December 6 and could lead to further power shortages.

Bali governor, Made Mangku Pastika, said he will seek alternative sources of energy, such as constructing a high-voltage electricity network that stretches across the Bali Strait.

It would be nice if they would consider “greener” electricity supplies, like wind or solar. Or even if they required hotels to use solar power for their outside lighting, which would at least be seen as a positive move.
