Background on Plant

The project is included in PT PLN's 2016-2025 and 2017-2026 long range supply plans, with 2 x 200 MW units in 2020, but further details are not available.[1][2]

Opposition to plant

In July 2017 hundreds of protesters rallied against construction of Sulsel-2 in front of parliament offices in Jeneponto, Jl Pahlawan, Kelurahan Empoang Binamu District. Five members of parliament including Chairman of DPRD Jeneponto Muh Kasmin Makkamula signed a petition in opposition to Sulsel-2.[3] Idris Lewa, coordinator of the action, noted that pollution from the plant would include mercury, lead, arsenic, and cadmium, and that it would threaten the survival of the Jeneponto community, especially the Tarowang sub-district.[4]

In March 2018 Commission II of the Regional Representative Council of Jeneponto said that the project had been cancelled due to the cancellation of economic development in the Bantaeng district that would have increased demand for electricity.[5]
