(4/11/2008)

Tempo Interaktif writes that the State Power Board (PLN) recorded a Rp. 3 billion (US$326,000) drop in power usage during Baliís traditional day of silence or Nyepi on March 7, 2008.

Bali's transformation for 24 hours into a virtual ghost town with all streets empty, places of business closed and airport shut down allowed PLN officials to cease operations at the 80-megawatt Steam Generation Station at Pemaron and the 130-megawatt gas generating station at Gilimanuk.

Experts also estimate that Bali's 24 hour shut down reduced by 20-30,000 tons of amount of hydrocarbon emissions from the 200,000 vehicles and 80 airplanes that went silent in Bali on March 7, 2008.
