Home Charging as a Supporting Infrastructure for Electric Vehicles

  • PT. PLN (Persero) also provides Home Charging services for electrical vehicle users, where electric car battery charging can be obtained at home.
  • PLN’s efforts to add electricity infrastructure, one of which is the Home Charging service, aim to improve services and convenience for electric vehicle users while also increasing public interest in using electric vehicles.
  • The use of electric cars can save costs 10 times more efficient.

PLN President Director, Darmawan Prasodjo expressed support for the government’s efforts to achieve Net Zero Emissions in the transition to renewable energy, and urged the government to accelerate the development of electric vehicle (EV) use by adding electricity infrastructure. PLN continues to develop electric vehicle infrastructure, such as the General Electric Vehicle Charging Station (SPKLU), the General Electric Vehicle Battery Exchange Station (SPBKLU), and Home Charging services.

As of March 2022, there were 267 General Electric Vehicle Charging Stations operating in 195 locations across Indonesia. The total General Electric Vehicle Charging Station owned by PLN is 120 units spread across 92 locations. PLN intends to build 580 General Electric Vehicle Charging Stations by the end of 2022 to make it easier for electric vehicle users. The General Electric Vehicle Charging Station location can also be checked on the PLN Mobile App via the Electric Vehicle feature, allowing EV users who want to travel long distances to make the best travel plans for themselves.

PT. PLN (Persero) also provides Home Charging services for electrical vehicle users, where electric car battery charging can be obtained at home. The total number of customers using Home charging services currently stands at 226.

PLN’s efforts to add electricity infrastructure, one of which is the Home Charging service, aim to improve services and convenience for electric vehicle users while also increasing public interest in using electric vehicles.

The use of electric vehicles is highly desired by the government because it can help the government suppress APBN fuel subsidies, save foreign exchange, and create national energy independence.

By converting fuel-based vehicles to electric, we will shift from imported to domestic energy, from expensive to cheap energy, and from high to low emissions so as to create a cleaner environment because it is free from pollution.

The use of electric cars can save costs 10 times more efficient. With a consumption of 1kWh, the Kona Electric is able to run for 9 km in the city. This is nearly the same as a conventional car using 1 liter of non-subsidized fuel, which has now reached Rp. 18,000.
