Indonesia state electricity firm PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara’s coal-fired power project in Labuan, Banten province, will be fully operational by March and will supply the Java-Bali grid with an additional 600 megawatts. Two other coal-fired projects — at Indramayu, West Java and Rembang, Central Java — were expected to be completed and fully operational by June.

Well, in term of energy defisit, govt should prioritize “other than Jawa”. But again, here come the idiotic paradigm of prioritizing Jakarta, as capital city, and its satellites.
