Indonesia aims to increase its electricity capacity to 15,000 megawatts this year to support its economic growth target of 7 percent by 2014, the Jakarta Post quoted a senior minister as saying.

"The15,000 MW capacity can be achieved through construction of new power plants," Coordinating Minister for the Economy Hatta Radjasa told a seminar organised by the Bogor Institute of Agriculture (IPB) in Jakarta on Saturday.

Hatta said that adequate power supply would help boost economic growth and increase competitive edge of the country’s industrial products in the world market.

The extra supply of electricity would keep state power producer from rotating blackouts.

"There would be no longer rotating blackouts throughout the country starting in June," he said as quoted by Antara.

He said the government's middle term target was to overcome power shortage in 2012-2013.
