As reported by, Jonan speaking on Thursday, December 21, 2017, declared that power supplies to Bali are sufficient for the New Year period. “I was told that the electrical supply in Bali is 1,200 megawatts. Meanwhile, at periods of peak demand the maximum power required is 800 megawatts. This means we have a surplus supply of 50%. That should be enough.”

Jonan was also used his visit to make sure power supplies would be maintained during the visit to Bali by President Joko Widodo on Friday, December 22, 2107. During his inspection, Jonan called on the State Power Board (PLN) to coordinate with the hotels used by the President to ensure a smooth flow of electrical supplies.

Jonan explained that the Presidential visit to Bali was to demonstrate to the world that Bali remains safe and there was no reason to delay a holiday on the Island. Jonan continued, saying, that the “danger zone” in Bali is limited to an 8-10 kilometer radius from Mount Agung’s peak with the remaining 98% of Bali safe for visits.

Jonan said his personal plans are to spend New Years Eve in Bali together with his family.
