(12/1/2007)

Tempo Interaktif reports that the State Power Board (PLN) have asked the people of Bali not to engage in their favorite pastime of kite flying during the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) set to take place in Nusa Dua from December 3-14, 2007.

PLN officials told the press that they have forwarded their request to village chiefs across the island because they are worried that kites may interfere with the electrical distribution system.

The extremely large kites flown by many village associations are often held aloft by wires that when they accidentally come in contact with high voltage lines can act as conductors causing short circuits.

The General Manager of PLN Bali, Budiman Bachrulhayat said that if the delegates attending the major conference in Bali suffer even "a moment's power outage, it could embarrass the entire nation." A meeting among PLN workers held in the week leading up to conference saw all the managers of PLN in Bali sign a declaration proclaiming their commitment to keep the lights on during the UN Climate Change Conference.
