INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Central Bureau of Statistics (BPS) has not been able to answer with certainty the possibility of simplifying the class of non-subsidized household electric utility class to inflation.

"I have not counted, the principle is that there is no tariff increase," said Head of BPS Suhariyanto in Jakarta, Tuesday (14/11/2017).

The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources says, the simplification only applies to customers with 900 VA without subsidy, 1,300 VA, 2,200 VA, and 3,300 VA. All of these classes will be raised and added power to 4,400 VA.

While the 4,400 VA to 12,600 VA classes are raised and powered up to 13,000 VA, and the 13,000 VA class on top of its power will be stark loss.

Thus in the future the household electrical customer class will only be divided into:

1-Subscribers with subsidized electricity (450 VA and 900 VA subsidies)

2-4,400 VA and 13,000 VA non-subsidized electric customers.

3. Non-subsidized electric subscriber 13,000 VA and above (loss stroom).
