Jakarta – The government, through the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (EMR) has officially set a new charging service fee at the Public Electric Vehicle Charging Station (SPKLU). The charging fee for fast charging is a maximum of Rp25,000 (USD 1.65), while for ultrafast charging, a maximum of Rp57,000 (USD 3.75).
Jisman Hutajulu, Director General of Electricity of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, said that the provision is contained in the Decree of the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Number 182.K/TL.04/MEM.S/2023 concerning Electricity Charging Service Fees at SPKLU.
“This service fee is a ceiling or maximum limit and is charged for every one-time charging,” Hutajulu said in an official statement. He said the service fee is an incentive for SPKLU Business Entities to continue to develop and expand SPKLU fast charging and ultrafast charging to make it easier for KBLBB owners to charge and support the development of the KBLBB ecosystem.
Hutajulu added that SPKLU business entities can apply service fees under the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Stipulation, with consideration and strategy of each business entity. The amount of the service fee is evaluated every two years to see the economics and reasonableness of the cost.
“Currently, there are 129 SPKLU fast charging units and 47 SPKLU ultrafast charging units. Hopefully, with this service fee, there will be more SPKLU fast and ultrafast charging units, especially on long-distance routes such as toll roads, national roads, and others,” said Hutajulu.
Following the provisions of the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Regulation, Number 1 of 2023, concerning the Provision of Electric Charging Infrastructure for Battery-Based Electric Motorised Vehicles (KBLBB), electric vehicle owners can be charged an electric charging service fee for each one-time electric charge at SPKLU fast charging or ultrafast charging.
Charging technology at SPKLU for vehicles with four or more wheels includes slow charging technology, medium charging technology, fast charging technology, and ultrafast charging technology. Electricity tariffs are applied for charging electricity from SPKLU business entities to KBLBB owners per electricity tariffs for special service purposes (L) using a multiplier factor N of a maximum of 1.5 and is the cost of purchasing electricity or energy charge (kWh).
The Government is also currently implementing the Enhancing Readiness For The Transition To Electric Vehicles In Indonesia (ENTREV) Programme, a collaborative programme between the Government of Indonesia and the United Nations Development Programme to improve the readiness of the electric vehicle ecosystem in Indonesia.
