Sofyan mentioned that the location of the power generation site is ideal for wind power generation since the speed of wind in the location is around 6m per second. He added that the preliminary stage of the plant will produce power of 10 megawatts.
According to Luluk Sumiarso, Director General for New and Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation at the Ministry, mentioned that other than the wind farm project, the government has planned to offer three letters by next month, enabling PLN to procure electricity from companies producing geothermal energy.
Luluk stated that the government would support energy projects in rural regions to attract private investors. He added that they have decided to develop several solar power plants in rural regions at both the household and community scale and the Sukabumi wind power project can bring in additional investment.
