Government owned electric company PLN has installed a third power supply to South Bali in order to help ensure there are less blackouts in the touristy hotspots of Nusa Dua.

Less Blackouts in South Bali

PLN said the latest power supply came from an electricity substation near Ngurah Rai International Airport in Badung, Bali.

The company connected the airport substation to southern Bali’s power grid on Saturday using a 2.85 circuit kilometer high-voltage underground power line (SKTT). The power line can carry up to 250 megawatts (MW) of electricity according to the Jakarta Post.

Connecting the third substation reduced chances of a blackout should the others undergo maintenance or shutdowns, said PLN spokesman Agung Murdifi in a statement that day.
