Electricity supply declines to 7 percent in 2013

Indonesia:President director of state-owned utility company PT PLN Nur Pamudji said on Wednesday that electricity supply throughout the country had declined to 7 percent from 10 percent last year.

“The [slowing] national economic situation has contributed to the decline in electricity supply,” he said. Nur added that PLN planned to add more plants with a total capacity of 4,000 to 5,000 megawatts (MW) each year to anticipate the country’s need of electricity. He said it might take five years to fulfill all the country’s electricity needs, including in the remote areas.

PT PLN had developed smaller plants with a total capacity of 1 to 3 MWs for providing electricity in the remote areas under the electrification plants development program funded by the state budget.

“We receive Rp 3.5 trillion [US$ 330 million] every year [from the state budget] to develop electrification plants in remote areas,” Nur said. He also said PLN planned to develop 15 steam-powered plants (PLTU), which would be named Merah Putih, throughout the country.
