MINI HYDRO






There will be a mini hydro power project in Jalong Tinggi by the Perak State government. I have carried out a search on this matter. 

The project developer is Perak Hydro Renewable Energy Corporation Sdn Bhd. (PHREC) [908000-H]. This company was incorporated on 14 July, 2010 to developed small hydroelectric projects in Perak state. The Executive Chairman is YB  Dato' Wan Mohammad Khair-il Anuar Wan Ahamd, the Kuala Kangsar MP. The other board members are Dato' Aminudin Bin Hashim (Perak MB Inc. CEO) and Beroz Nikmal Bin Mirdin - Managing Director.

25 sites have been identified and approved for development under the Small Renewable Energy Program. All sites will be under the preview of the Renewable Energy Act 2011 by Sustainable Energy Development Agency (SEDA) where each site will be granted the license to generate power. The power purchase agreement will be signed with TNB with a tenure of 21 years.

This program will allow renewable energy project developers to enjoy the benefits of higher tariff rate via the Feed in Tariff (FiT) mechanism. The approved FiT rate for small hydro is 24c/kwh for projects 10MW and below 23c/kwh for projects above 10MW.

Approximately 130 - 150 MW of renewable energy will be produced from all 25 sites in the span of 5 - 7 years. Once commissioned, PHREC will operate and maintain these mini hydro's.

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT FOR INDIGENOUS PEOPLE







Government through JAKOA has introduced a few programmes to uplift the living standard of the indigenous people in Jalong Tinggi. Rubber, cocoa and banana plantation were introduced however, I was informed that only rubber is successful. Rubber Industry Smallholders Development Agency [RISDA] and Lembaga Getah Malaysia [LGM] have been assisting JAKOA to developed and convert the land successfully. Frequent visits, guides and monitoring from the 2 agencies help the 'Temiar' community a lot, unlike Lembaga Koko Malaysia [LKM].

LKM has trained the people, seeding and fertilizers provided, land developed but no monitoring, guides and visits after planting. The plants are left  to the participants which this plant is new for them. Although training given, they still need monitoring, guides and advise. They are not learned and experience people. They are learning. 

education hut for training, guidance and monitoring  

I have experience with the JAKOA on fish project. I wrote to JAKOA and fishery department request training for the 'orang asal'. The actions from JAKOA is extremely prompt! Canvass, fish food and fishes arrived immediately! Without knowledge, experience, guides, advise and monitoring from the respective departments, all 2,000 fishes dead within 1 month! What's a waste of government fund!

YES! Is a waste but my sixth sense senses that somebody is making something out of it! Where's the integrity and responsibility?

Forum Perpaduan - KENALI NEGARA KITA








'KENALI NEGARA KITA' - an unity forum was organised by Jawatankuasa Penyelaras KRT Sungai Siput, chaired by RT Kg. Bahagia. It was held in Dewan Kompleks Perhutanan Sungai Siput on 25 March, 2014. The co-ordination committee consist of 19 RTs in Sungai Siput.

10 people from each RT and each participant have to bring along a teenager to this forum. The respond is overwhelming. As Chairman of RT Taman-Taman Muhibbah, I am proud to said that 26 multi-racial participants from this RT spreading from the seniors, adults and teenagers irrespective of gender attended.

My family

The lack of interaction between neighbours and no understanding between races were the causes of disunity among Malaysians said Dato' Ahamad Fakeh Adam (RT Kg. Bahagia Chairman) in his welcoming speech. He said that the younger generation is different from the older generation; as the latter can mixed well and there were no racial tension. 

3 speakers were invited to talk on the Principe of 1 Malaysia, Rukunegara and the constitution. The moderator of this forum has done a good job. Generally the whole forum is acceptable but not up to expectation.
