Jakarta – Travelers with electric cars can safely cross the Trans Java toll road without worrying about running out of battery power. PLN started the operation of nine units of Public Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (SPKLU) along the homecoming route, especially those along the Trans Java toll road.
PLN President Director Darmawan Prasodjo, said that he had ensured that supporting infrastructure for electric vehicles (EV) was available on the homecoming route, making it easier for EV users who were going home to be confident not to run out of battery before reaching their destination. Electric vehicle battery charging facilities are already operating in a number of toll road rest areas on the homecoming route.
“We continue to increase (the number of) charging stations so that we can increase public confidence in switching to electric vehicles. PLN is committed to supporting a capable and reliable ecosystem for electric vehicle users in Indonesia,” he said.
The SPKLUs is supported by three types of chargers that are ready to operate optimally to meet the needs of the public. Until now, PLN operates 616 SPKLUs spread across 237 locations in Indonesia, ready to serve charging electric vehicles during Eid homecoming. (Hartatik)
