The government is ready to welcome the peak of the G20 Summit by providing supporting facilities for electric vehicles such as the Public Electric Vehicle Charging Station (SPKLU) in Bali. A total of 88 SPKLUs are available in Bali for now.
To welcome the G20, SOEs are intensively monitoring the readiness of the 88 SPKLUs.
Deputy Minister of SOEs, Pahala Nugraha Masury, and his entourage visited the location directly in front of the old Tiara Dewata on Sunday, October 16, 2022.
According to him, the provision of SPKLU is a form of support for the implementation of the G20 Summit and the electric vehicle ecosystem.
The energy transition aims to reduce carbon emissions to achieve Net Zero Emission by 2060,” said Pahala.
Darmawan Prasodjo as the President Director of PLN who accompanied the Deputy Minister said that his party had set a target for the development of the SPKLU. With the support of SOEs and other parties, the construction itself has been running smoothly.
“There are already 88 SPKLU to support the G20 which was built by PLN itself and also franchising.
Of the 88 units, there are 66 Ultra Fast Charging units and 22 fast charging units,” explained Darmawan. 86 of the SPKLU units have been installed while the other two are used with the mobile method.
In addition, 200 Home Charging units have been prepared spread throughout Bali.
To access strategic locations, PLN cooperates with banks, offices, malls, hotels and coffee shops, and other parties. Cooperation, which is a new way of life, is also established with provider technology investors.
From the results of the SPKLU review, the Deputy Minister stated that the readiness of the facilities was very good and accessed easily. The convenience side of the community has also been fulfilled well.
“We have seen for ourselves how the fast charging stations built by PLN here can already use the PLN mobile application. The payment itself can be done very easily with existing applications,” said the Deputy Minister.
With good preparation, it is hoped that it can increase the use of electricity for the community. Furthermore, people’s convenience is also expected to be achieved by charging electric vehicles.
