The National Electricity Corporation (PLN) will completely shut down the electricity in Nusa Penida in observance of the Day of Silence (Nyepi) on March 3.
The Public Relations Manager of PLN for Bali, I Made Arya, confirmed that there would be a blackout in Nusa Penida during the Day of Silence, as was requested by the local authorities.
“This implementation is in fulfillment of the request of local officials, as the noise from the generators can disturb the silence during the celebration,” Arya said on Friday (25/2).
Arya explained that the implementation would last 24 hours, starting from the morning of March 3.
“The blackout will start from 6:00 am on March 3 to 6:00 am the next day. The residents will have access to electricity once the celebration ends,” Arya added. This policy will only be implemented in Nusa Penida.
“Unless a problem arises during the celebration, Mainland Bali won’t be affected by the blackout as it will only be implemented in Nusa Penida. In any case, our staff is ready to respond if mainland residents will have issues with their electricity,” Arya concluded.
