API: The Use of Industrial Electricity Decreases PDF Print E-mail

The Indonesian Textile Association (API) states that the absorption of electricity in the textile industry if summed down to 20%. This is considered an increase in electricity demand is low by PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN). According to the calculation of electricity absorption PLN only increased by 1%.

 

Chairman of the API, Ade Sudrajat said, the current purchasing power of textiles is reduced because of the removal of electricity subsidies made by the government to customers 900 kilovolt (KV). So people are burdened with electricity needs.

 

As a result, textile purchasing power has declined. "If viewed as a whole, in the first half of 2017, our electricity consumption decreased to 20%," explained Ade, Friday (28/7).

 

With the lack of people's purchasing power on textiles, Ade says, many textile industry firms are making efficiency. How, by not producing at peak load. "Anticipation is now yes, many companies are slow down production," he explained.

 

Efficiency is also done by taking longer Lebaran holidays. For example add the Eid holiday from the previous three days to 20 days. "We are also holding back the expansion. At least, look for export markets that have never been touched. For the price can be negotiation, "said Ade.

 

Just so you know, in the first half of this year PLN recorded sales volume to 108.4 terra watt hour (TWh). It edged up 1.17% compared to the same period last year which amounted to 107.2 TWh.

 

The increase in sales was due to the addition of 1,663 megawatt (MW) power plant capacity generated from 463 MW PLN power plant and additional capacity of 1,199 MW Independent Power Producer (IPP) and completion of 1,489 kilometers of circuits (kms), transmission lines and Substation at 5,750 MVA.

 

PLN Finance Director Sarwono said the increase in sales volume was due to an increase in the number of customers. By the end of June PLN recorded 65.9 million subscribers. That number added 1.6 million subscribers from the end of last year which was 64.3 million subscribers. "The increase in demand kWh is dominated by electricity consumption in industrial tariffs," he explained through a written broadcast.

 

Referring to data on electricity usage in the first half of 2016, the electricity consumption increase reaches 7.8% from the first half of 2015. Therefore, it is clear that this year's increase is lower than the previous year.

 

Executive Director of the Association of Iron and Steel Industry of Indonesia, Hidayat Triseputro said, in this year there is no increase in electricity consumption in the iron or steel industry. The reason, the company is still holding sales while waiting for the decline in gas prices to US $ 6 per MMBTU realized.

 

"Since our utility is not yet optimal, so the electricity consumption does not go up. We are also still demanding equality for more competitive gas prices. So not just for SOEs, "he said.

 

API:Pemakaian Listrik Industri Menurun

 

 

Asosiasi Pertekstilan Indonesia (API) menyatakan bahwa penyerapan listrik pada industri tekstil jika dijumlahkan turun sampai 20%. Inilah yang dianggap kenaikan permintaan listrik rendah oleh PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN). Menurut hitungan PLN penyerapan listrik hanya naik 1%.

 

Ketua API, Ade Sudrajat menyatakan, saat ini daya beli tekstil berkurang lantaran adanya pencabutan subsidi listrik yang dilakukan oleh pemerintah kepada pelanggan 900 kilovolt (KV). Sehingga masyarakat dibebani dengan kebutuhan listrik.

 

Dampaknya, daya beli tekstil ikut menurun. “Jika dilihat secara keseluruhan, pada semester I 2017 ini, pemakaian listrik kami menurun sampai 20%,” terang Ade, Jumat (28/7).

 

Dengan kurangnya daya beli masyarakat terhadap tekstil itu, kata Ade, maka banyak perusahaan industri pertekstilan melakukan efisiensi. Caranya, dengan tidak memproduksi pada beban puncak. “Antisipasinya sekarang ya itu, banyak perusahaan yang slow down produksinya,” jelasnya.

 

Efisiensi juga dilakukan dengan cara mengambil libur lebaran yang lebih panjang. Misalnya menambah libur lebaran dari yang sebelumnya haya tiga hari menjadi 20 hari. “Selain itu juga kami menahan ekspansi. Paling tidak, mencari pasar ekspor yang belum pernah dijamah. Untuk harganya bisa negosiasi,” tandas Ade.

 

Asal tahu saja, pada semester pertama tahun ini PLN mencatat volume penjualan menjadi 108,4 terra watt hour (TWh). Ini naik tipis 1,17% dibandingkan dengan periode yang sama tahun lalu yang sebesar 107,2 TWh.

 

Peningkatan penjualan ini lantaran penambahan kapasitas pembangkit sebesar 1.663 megawatt (MW) yang berasal dari pembangkit PLN sebesar 463 MW dan tambahan kapasitas dari Independent Power Producer (IPP) sebesar 1.199 MW serta penyelesaian 1.489 kilometer sirkuit (kms), jaringan transmisi dan Gardu Induk sebesar 5.750 MVA.

 

Direktur Keuangan PLN Sarwono mengatakan, peningkatan volume penjualan ini karena ada kenaikan jumlah pelanggan. Per akhir Juni PLN mencatat 65,9 juta pelanggan. Jumlah tersebut bertambah 1,6 juta pelanggan dari akhir tahun lalu yang sebanyak 64,3 juta pelanggan. “Kenaikan permintaan kWh tersebut di dominasi oleh pemakaian listrik di golongan tarif industri,” terangnya melalui siaran tertulis.

 

Jika merujuk pada data pemakaian listrik pada semester I tahun 2016, kenaikan pemakaian listrik mencapai 7,8% dari semester I tahun 2015. Maka dari itu jelas, angka kenaikan tahun ini lebih rendah dibandingkan tahun yang sebelumnya.

 

Direktur Eksekutif Asosiasi Industri Besi dan Baja Indonesia, Hidayat Triseputro menyebutkan, pada tahun ini tidak ada peningkatan pemakaian listrik dalam industri besi maupun baja. Pasalnya, saat ini perusahaan masih menahan penjualan sambil menunggu penurunan harga gas sampai US$ 6 per MMBTU direalisasikan.

 

“Karena utilitas kami belum optimal, makanya pemakaian listrik tidak naik. Kami juga masih menuntut kesetaraan agar harga gas lebih kompetitif. Jadi bukan hanya untuk BUMN saja,” tandasnya.
