SURVEY OF EXISTING ELECTRICITY GENERATION

In December year, YBUL and Chevron surveyed initial site for project implementation in (1) Desa Pulosari, Kec. Kalapa Nunggal, Sukabumi and (2) Desa Ciasmara, Kec. Pamijahan, Bogor.
The objective of the survey is to evaluate the condition of existing pico-hydro and assess local technical visibility for electricity generation.

The result are: (i) The site in Pulosari is not recommended for natural resource utilization due to limited water-flow in dry season and aluvulial land-structure along the river band, which is vulnerable for land-slide. (ii) The site in Ciasmara is technically visible for natural resource utilization due to steady water-flow in dry season† but revitalizing existing pico-hydro will be very expensive.

Comparing these two sites, initial recommendation was to improve existing community-based efforts on traditional mills for generating electricity should the community wanted. However, since the PLN poles was present, the community request Chevron assistance for installation fee.

This issue was clarified on 11 May 2010 through a small meeting, which was held in Balai Kelompok Tani Ciasmara. This meeting was attended by Mr. Dali Mulia (Chevron), Gita Gemilang and Ligan Panggabean (YBUL) and Kades Ciasmara, several community leaders. In this meeting, Chevron clarified that electrification is† central and/or regional government authority, in which PLN acted as implementer. Chevron can† help, but limited to training, cooperative/micro-financing development, and education. Pak Dali further explained that Chevron did assist YBUL to see the river utilization potential for electricity generation in Ciasmara. But Chevronís role is only introducing the site and the community.

In this meeting, YBUL also clarified the finding of the survey. Although the potential is promising; however, the turbine, generator and control panels are broken and need to be replaced. In addition, power house, intake dam and penstock require new civil work. The revitalization cost is closed to the cost of building a new. Thus, considering the high revitalizing cost and the existence of PLN poles in the lower end of the village, revitalization of existing pico-hydro in Desa Ciasmara is not recommended.
