Electricity Rates Discount Expanded PDF Print E-mail

PT PLN (Persero) plans to add more recipients incentive discount electricity rates and lightening delayed payments to support industrial growth in the country. The trick to simplify the procedure for obtaining the incentives it. Indonesian Textile Association (API) spoke to PLN provide feedback related to it. API considers that discount electricity rates for labor-intensive industries, one of the policies of the economic package of volumes III was announced in October 2015 and then, not so perceived impact on the labor-intensive industry.


Therefore, the discount is only given by PLN to increased consumption of electricity used by the plant at 23:00 at night until 8:00 in the morning. For example, the consumption of normal plant at that hour is 100,000 kWh.


Later usage increased to 110000-130000 kWh, then the addition of 10000-30000 kWh that is discounted.


The problem is, the use of electricity in labor-intensive industries such as textile and garment constant. When there is no additional power consumption, the industrial customer is not a discount at all.


He protested provisions according to which the electricity tariff discount policy is not the same in the economic package of volumes III. "Kan should discount 23.00 to 08.00, the same is different from that in the package," he said.


For incentives in the form of a deferred payment, it considered already well underway. The procedure to get it is not too complicated. "If the bills are already way installment," said Ernovian.


Contacted separately, the Secretary General of the Indonesian Employers Association (Apindo), Sanny Iskandar, suggesting PLN provide a discount for the entire electricity consumption at 23.00 at night until 8:00 in the morning as announced in Volume III of economic package, not just the addition of consumption are discounted.


"Requirements should be easy to take into account not only discount of increased consumption of electricity used, but the discount rate should be given to the entire consumption of electricity at certain hours," he said.


Meanwhile, Director General of Electricity Ministry of Energy, Jarman, appreciates the intention PLN expand and simplify procedures discount electricity rates. Jarman also reminded PLN speed up the connection for a new customer.


"Surely discounting in line with government policy. Another thing to do is speed up the connection time for new customer services as envisioned in one door," he concluded.



Diskon Tarif Listrik Diperluas



PT PLN (Persero) berencana menambah lagi penerima insentif diskon tarif listrik dan keringanan penundaan pembayaran untuk mendukung pertumbuhan industri di dalam negeri. Caranya dengan mempermudah prosedur untuk memperoleh insentif-insentif itu.  Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) angkat bicara memberikan masukan untuk PLN terkait hal tersebut. API menilai bahwa diskon tarif listrik untuk industri padat karya, salah satu kebijakan dari paket ekonomi jilid III yang diumumkan Oktober 2015 lalu, belum begitu dirasakan dampaknya oleh pelaku industri padat karya.


Sebab, diskon hanya diberikan oleh PLN untuk peningkatan konsumsi listrik yang dipakai oleh pabrik pada pukul 23.00 malam hingga 08.00 pagi. Sebagai contoh, misalnya pemakaian normal pabrik pada jam tersebut adalah 100.000 kWh.


Kemudian pemakaian meningkat menjadi 110.000-130.000 kWh, maka penambahan sebesar 10.000-30.000 kWh itulah yang didiskon.


Masalahnya, pemakaian listrik di industri padat karya seperti tekstil dan garmen konstan. Ketika tidak ada penambahan pemakaian listrik, maka pelanggan industri tersebut tidak memperoleh diskon sama sekali.


Dirinya memprotes ketentuan diskon tarif listrik yang menurutnya tidak sama dengan kebijakan dalam paket ekonomi jilid III. "Kan harusnya diskon pukul 23.00 sampai 08.00, ini beda sama yang di paket," tukasnya.


Untuk insentif berupa penundaan pembayaran, pihaknya menilai sudah berjalan dengan baik. Prosedur untuk mendapatkannya pun tidak terlalu rumit. "Kalau yang cicilan tagihan sudah jalan," ucap Ernovian.


Dihubungi secara terpisah, Sekjen Asosiasi Pengusaha Indonesia (Apindo), Sanny Iskandar, menyarankan PLN memberikan diskon untuk seluruh pemakaian listrik pada jam 23.00 malam hingga 08.00 pagi seperti yang diumumkan dalam paket ekonomi jilid III, bukan hanya penambahan konsumsinya saja yang didiskon.


"Persyaratan harus dipermudah dengan tidak memperhitungkan diskon hanya dari peningkatan konsumsi listrik yang dipakai, namun diskon tarif harus diberikan untuk seluruh konsumsi listriknya pada jam tertentu," ujarnya.


Sementara itu, Dirjen Ketenagalistrikan Kementerian ESDM, Jarman, mengapresiasi niat PLN memperluas dan mempermudah prosedur diskon tarif listrik. Jarman juga mengingatkan agar PLN mempercepat waktu penyambungan bagi pelanggan baru.


"Tentunya pemberian diskon sejalan dengan kebijakan pemerintah. Hal lain yang perlu dilakukan yaitu mempercepat waktu penyambungan bagi pelanggan baru sebagaimana dicanangkan dalam layanan 1 pintu," pungkasnya.
