INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - To reduce the cost of electricity production, PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (Persero) plans to acquire a coal mine. Currently, the majority of the primary energy supply comes from coal.

Head of PLN Corporate Communications Unitt, I Made Suprateka, said that the company is currently conducting a study to purchase coal mines into the company's electricity supply plan (RUPTL).

According to him, so far the majority of PLN's electricity supply comes from primary energy of coal. If coal price rises, it will affect PLN's cost of production.

"If we can control the coal mine, we can reduce the production cost, at least 20 percent of the prime energy needs of the coal can be fulfilled by itself," said Made at Hotel Mulia, Jakarta, Friday (21/07/2017).

The location continued Made, approximately located in Kalimantan and Sumatra, because coal is in two places. For investment needs, Made has not been able to confirm the figures clearly because it depends on the location of the mine and the calories from the coal.

Made hopes, with this acquisition plan to reduce the cost of electricity production in stages gradually the basic electricity tariff prices enjoyed by the community will drop and the government burden for subsidies of this sector to be reduced.
