Indonesia, especially Java-Bali system is
in the tightness of power supply and demand.
To solve the crisis, the crash program has
been implemented vigorously, to build a coal-fired
thermal plants. They are, however, running
the operation in 2009 if fast, and could
be delayed by one year, in 2010. On September
1, they came into Ramadan for na month. During
this time every year, demand increase by
2.5 percent than usual.
The Indonesian government and PLN are implementing
the power saving program with large demand
consumers for negotiations on power saving.
It is, however, not smooth. This policy may
be similar with the JICA study, which was
implemented a few years ago, to mobilize
the captive powers, self-generating equipment,
into the system. At that time, it might be
difficult because of not only technical but
fuel costs high.
Why do companies dislike? It is why the PLN
power supply is cheaper. Why is that cheap?
The PLN power is coming from the governmental
fuel subsidy, which is always the target
of criticism from international organizations
in the world. Today's article says that,
in 2007, the total amount of subsidy was
33.1 trillion rupiah, equivalent to about
3.61 billion US $, and this year, 2008, the
rising cost of fuel, 88.4 trillion rupiah,
equivalent to about 9.65 billion US $. President
Yudhoyono told to the house that, in the
2009 fiscal year, next fiscal year, crude
oil barrel price 100 dollars was the basis
of the national budget.
The issue of subsidies and electricity rates
are a little confusing for me. Today's article
could give me some figures for my understanding.
A group of companies, out of power saving
measures, are excluded from the fuel subsidy
out. The traditional average of about 6.92
cents per KWh will be increased because of
removing subsidies. As a results, the rate
shall be, in the daytime peak hours, equivalent
to about 10.64 cents, in the evening peak
hours, equivalent to about 21.29 cents, and
in night off-peak hours to about 9.58 cents.
