State-owned electricity company PT PLN (Persero) has said it is ready to develop power plants with a total capacity of 15,000 Megawatts (MW) within five years, starting from 2015.

“From the government’s program to develop 35,000-MW power plants by 2020, PLN is ready to build power plants with a total capacity of 15,000 MW while the remaining 20,000 MW will be built by independent power producers [IPPs],” said PLN president director Nur Pamudji, as quoted by Antara news agency in Jakarta on Monday.
