Jokowi launches mega power plant projects

President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo launched on Monday his ambitious plan to build power plants to produce 35,000 MW of electricity.

The 35,000 MW for Indonesia Program is expected to be realized within the next five years in 240 places across Indonesia.

“The program is part of efforts to not depend on fossil fuel,” Jokowi said in his keynote address at Goa Beach, Cemara, Gadingsari, Sanden, Bantul, Yogyakarta.

Jokowi acknowledged that many had criticized the 35,000 MW for Indonesia Program as being too lofty because Indonesia had only managed to build plants that produce 50,000 MW of power in the past 70 years.
