PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (Persero) (PLN) provides an electricity tariff discount of 30% for electric car owners who charge electric car batteries through a home charging facility. The discount is provided with the condition that the charging of the electric car battery is carried out from 22.00 to 05.00 local time. The President Director of PLN, Darmawan Prasodjo, said that the discount reduces the electricity tariff from Rp1,450 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) to Rp1,100 per kWh. Darmawan explained that the discount provision is an endeavor by PLN to increase electricity consumption because the utilization of power plants is decreased at night in line with the decline in community and industrial activities.

In addition, the discount provision is also intended to improve the domestic electric vehicle ecosystem. For information, PLN carries out digitalization for home charging services so that consumers who buy an electric car may obtain a home charging facility which is part of the equipment from the purchase of the electric car. The home charging facility will be directly connected to the server owned by PLN using fiber optic internet. For PLN customers who install home charging for the electric car, the electricity bills for daily electricity usage and home charging usage will be separated.
