TDL will not be lowered

State Electricity Company (PLN) stressed that it will not lower the base electricity tariff (TDL) for households and industries although the price for power plants’ fuel has plummeted. According to PLN’s President Director Fahmi Mochtar, the fall of crude oil price does not impose significant impact to the electricity’s production cost. The weakening of rupiah against the US dollar already affected the SOE’s performance, such as for the maintenance of PLN’s power generation equipments, which are mostly imported.
