The right of reply

Enough is enough. People who proclaim to fight for freedom of expression and free media but censors other's legitimate reply based on their whims and fancy, must realise that on the internet, they cannot suppress peoples' legitimate right to reply and express contrarian views.

IPP: Why must PR bloggers always lie.


I am now having a fight with pro pr blogger donplaypuk.

I really don’t know why these people like to show off their ignorance. And then because of ignorance accuse others of wrong doings. Really something wrong with their values.

Now he alleged like many blind follower that the new IPPs are robbing TNB. He alleges that there’s already 55% reserve margin, so why should we have any new power plants. Any increase is as usual to rob the rakyat.

Man. Some people are really off. So this is my reply. Its sarcastic. Pardon me for my language. ( DPP stands for donplaypuk.) I’ve sanitized a bit. The reply is as follows:

“….. I know what. Why don’t we appoint mahaguru Dpp as our system planner amacam? Lets see how he plans our electricity demand. Nak tak? ….

First lets gets the facts right. We look at peninsular electricity generation capacity. Why not Sabah and Sarawak? Coz they’re not connected. Whatever they do, we can’t use their electricity.

So what is actually the reserve. Is it 55%? Lets see Energy Commission’s figure. Latest figure (2011) says that the electrical generation capacity for peninsular is 21000 MW (megawatt). What does this means? The maximum electricity all plants can produce is 21k MW.

So what’s the usage in 2011? According to EC, 15500MW. There is a difference of approx 6000MW excess capacity. I’m not sure how 55% was derived from. But the next question is this 6k a lot?

How do we decide? We see how much demand and how much capacity we have in the future. Now its public knowledge that in a couple of years, all 1st generation IPP will retire. What’s the total production lost from the system because of it? Its 4300MW. (Just google. its public info) It means we’re going to be short of 4300MW.

What about demand? EC predicted demand to grow by 3%++ per year. Meaning to say if 3% from 2011 we need another 3100 MW by 2016.

So if we appoint DPP who doesn’t believe we should build anymore power plant, what will happen in 2016? Hmmm. 6000 MW minus 4300 MW (1st gen IPP lost) and minus another 3100 MW (growth projection) is … Alamak tak cukup electricity lah.

So you see how [ridiculous] this mahaguru DPP is. Pretend to know. But really an ignorant dumb fool.”

PS: unknown to DPP, no one builds power plant in a day. It takes 3 to 5/6 years. So that’s why we need to plan.

  1. It all depends on the ‘projections’ and ‘assumptions’ by the “con sultants” who can even propose that the Arab population is growing rapidly and so the Arabs must develop the sahara desert. It actual fact they just want their petro dollars and some Arabs want to make castles out of gold.

    • Welcome…. Sorry miss your comment earlier. But I’m fine with EC projection. But the initial road and train concession even by reputable international “con” sultant memang out lah.

  2. Fauziah, you are dead right. That is why we should go for second and third “independent” (read as “different”) opinions which can be expensive and adding extra costs.
