Expensive Electricity Rates Due to High Gas Price
Thursday, January 12, 2017 1:03 pm
TRIBUNNEWS.COM, JAKARTA – The government has set a gas price cuts for three industrial sectors named Steel, Fertilizers and Petrochemicals.
However, such rates are not given to PT PLN (Persero) for Gas Power (power plant).
Chairman of Trade Unions (SP) PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN), Jumadis Abda, explained the purchase price of gas for power plants was above 9 dollars per mmBtu.
That number was above the discount gas prices for industry that was only $ 6 per MMBtu.
“The high price of gas supply for the power plant is touted as a major contributor to the high price of electricity for the community,” said Abda, Wednesday (11/01/2017).
According to Abda, the price of gas becomes a problem for PLN.
It is because it greatly affects the cost of production and electricity tariffs to the public.
“The average national price of gas is 9 dollars per MMBTU including the price of gas is still 9 dollars per MMBTU. This is still relatively expensive,” said Abda.
Abda added that competitiveness of PT PLN as the state electricity provider was not against private enterprise.
Abda also thinks that it could be detrimental for PLN and consumers.
“So no wonder that high electricity increases will always be charged to the consumer because the components can not be controlled before,” said Abda.
