Nonsubsidi Electricity Rates Increase Starting October PDF Print E-mail
Written by Maizer   
Thursday, 20 October 2016

PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN Persero) back to raise electricity rates. The increase is carried out as per October to 12 non-subsidized classes of customers have followed the tariff adjustment mechanism (TA).  On the other side of the Indonesian Textile Association (API) worried about the tariff increase will hit the textile industry which is one of the largest users of electrical energy.

 

The Commission VII hoped the increase was followed by improved quality of service. The decision to increase electricity tariffs PLN delivered through the release yesterday.

 

Senior Manager Public Relations Murfidi PLN Court explained, the change rate is also only applies to non-subsidized classes. While 25 other group did not change and still receive subsidies from the government.

 

"Customers of small household power of 450 VA and 900 VA, small business and industry as well as social customer included in the 25 tariff categories that do not rise," said Agung in Jakarta yesterday. Based on data from PLN, non-subsidized group totaled 12.5 million consumers or 20% from PLN 62.6 million subscribers.

 

The 25 groups who had no rate change of 50 million consumers, or 80%. Chairman of the Indonesian Textile Association (API) Ade Sudrajat assess such increases do not correspond to the current condition in which the global market has not improved. In his view, the decision to hit the textile industry is one of the largest electricity users. "Demand has not improved.

 

The impact of the industry will run out. So there must be a mutual understanding in order to win win solution. Do not be selfish, "he said. However, the Executive Director of the Institute for Essential Services Reform Fabby Tumiwa considers electricity tariff hike through the mechanism of TA would have less impact on the industry. "That's not the basic rate. It is based exchange rates, oil prices and inflation.

 

Surely easily up and down. I guess not too influential on the industry or business, "he said. Meanwhile, members of the House of Representatives Commission VII Kurtubi hope PLN decision on electricity tariffs must be accompanied by an increase in services. The reason, he admitted that many receive reports from the public to the many complaints about PLN service.

 

"We have received reports that even some die every day to twice a day. PLN reason is the ability of electricity less, wanted to build a power plant can not afford, "he said. Kurtubi also stressed, Commission VII agree if their electricity tariff increase is accompanied by the development of infrastructure in areas lacking electricity as outside Java, both Kalimantan, Sulawesi and other regions.

 

"PLN today less costs of building the infrastructure. On that basis they raise rates, PLN can not build power plant, as a result private wake. It also needs to be informed, our country is still in dire need of power plants, "he said.

 

 

 

Tarif Listrik Nonsubsidi Naik Mulai Oktober

 

 

PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN, Persero) kembali menaikkan tarif listrik. Kenaikan yang dilakukan per Oktober untuk 12 golongan pelanggan nonsubsidi ini mengikuti mekanisme tariff adjustment (TA).

 

Di sisi lain Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) mengkhawatirkan kenaikan tarif tersebut akan memukul industri tekstil yang merupakan salah satu pengguna terbesar energi listrik. Adapun Komisi VII DPR berharap kenaikan itu diikuti dengan peningkatan kualitas pelayanan. Keputusan kenaikan tarif listrik disampaikan PLN lewat rilis kemarin.

 

Manajer Senior Public Relations PLN Agung Murfidi menjelaskan, perubahan tarif juga hanya berlaku bagi golongan nonsubsidi. Sementara 25 golongan lainnya tidak berubah dan masih tetap mendapat subsidi dari pemerintah.

 

“Pelanggan rumah tangga kecil daya 450 VA dan 900 VA, bisnis dan industri kecil serta pelanggan sosial termasuk dalam 25 golongan yang tidak naik tarifnya tersebut,” ujar Agung di Jakarta kemarin. Berdasar data PLN, golongan nonsubsidi berjumlah 12,5 juta konsumen atau 20% dari 62,6 juta pelanggan PLN.

 

Adapun 25 golongan yang tidak mengalami perubahan tarif sebanyak 50 juta konsumen atau 80%. Ketua Umum Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) Ade Sudrajat menilai kenaikan tersebut tidak sesuai dengan kondisi sekarang di mana pasar global belum membaik. Dalam pandangannya, putusan tersebut memukul industri tekstil yang merupakan salah satu pengguna listrik terbesar. “Permintaan belum membaik.

 

Dampaknya industri akan habis. Makanya harus ada saling pengertian supaya bisa win win solution. Jangan mau menang sendiri,” ujarnya. Namun Direktur Eksekutif Institute for Essential Services Reform Fabby Tumiwa menganggap kenaikan tarif listrik melalui mekanisme TA tidak akan terlalu berpengaruh terhadap industri. “Itu bukan tarif dasar. Itu didasarkan nilai tukar, harga minyak, dan inflasi.

 

Tentunya gampang naik turun. Saya kira nggak terlalu berpengaruh terhadap industri atau bisnis,” ungkapnya. Sementara itu anggota DPR Komisi VII Kurtubi berharap keputusan PLN atas tarif listrik harus di sertai dengan peningkatan pelayanannya. Pasalnya, dia mengaku masih banyak menerima laporan dari masyarakat atas banyaknya keluhan mengenai pelayanan PLN.

 

“Kita terima laporan malah ada yang setiap hari mati sampai dua kali sehari. Alasan PLN memang kemampuan listriknya kurang, mau membangun pembangkit listrik tidak mampu,” ungkapnya. Kurtubi juga menekankan, Komisi VII setuju jika adanya kenaikan tarif listrik disertai dengan pembangunan infrastruktur listrik di daerah yang kekurangan seperti luar Jawa, baik Kalimantan, Sulawesi maupun daerah lain.

 

“PLN hari ini kurang biaya dalam membangun infrastrukturnya. Atas dasar itu mereka menaikkan tarif, PLN tidak bisa bangun pembangkit listrik, alhasil swasta yang bangun. Ini juga perlu diinformasikan, negara kita masih sangat membutuhkan pembangkit listrik,” tandasnya.
