ONENEWS.MY.ID, Jakarta – PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (Persero) or PLN announced that 60 private parties have proposed cooperation to build a Public Electric Vehicle Charging Station or SPKLU. This cooperation will be carried out under a profit-sharing scheme or sharing economic value.
“We will continue to encourage this, so that the provision of this infrastructure will be carried out by the private sector,” said Director of Commerce and Customer Management of PT PLN (Persero) Bob Saril in a written statement, Tuesday, January 4, 2022.
Previously, PLN launched several SPKLU on its own program in several places in the country. Until December 2021, PLN will provide as many as 96 SPKLU units with their own procurement, which are in 73 locations in Indonesia. Meanwhile, the total procurement with other business entities has reached 114 units.
This year, PLN will continue to build new SPKLUs at their own expense. The plan is that in 2022, PLN targets to be able to build 40 SPKLU with an investment of around Rp 55 billion. Because not all of them can be provided by PLN, they are also cooperating with the private sector.
Bob has not detailed which 60 private parties who have registered come from. However, he said that this year PLN will also boost cooperation with apartment owners, shop owners, mall owners and BUMN offices.
Recently, PLN built two SPKLU units at the Office of the Directorate General of Electricity, Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources or ESDM. These are the 16th and 17th SPKLUs installed in Jakarta, with capacities of 25 Kilowatt (kW) and 30 kW, respectively.
