Originally published on Planetsave.

Solar electricity in Indonesia could grow markedly in the next few years, through the use of FiTs.

Indomesia-Bali-shutterstock_347774750-600x400As reported by SolarServer, the Ministry of Energy & Mineral Resources (ESDM) has issued a Government Decree to provide support mechanisms for utility-scale solar photovoltaic systems, exhibition and management services.

The driving support mechanism will be the solar FiT priced at up to USD 0.25 per kWh.

The fundamental points of this decree involve Feed-in-Tariffs (FiTs) for solar power from USD 0.145 cents to USD 0.25 per kWh of solar power. The goal of this decree targets adding 5.000 MWp of solar PV capacity in 2-3 years. The ESDM is optimistic that projects will be implemented smoothly.

This program will offer quotas to Independent Power Producers (IPPs). Through the regulation, Indonesia could get an additional investment of up to Rp 156 trillion (USD 12 billion).

The government of Indonesia has set aside USD 100 million for subsidizing renewable energy in 2017. This rule is viewed as encouraging the development of solar power plants and huge demand in the market, GEM Indonesia has stated.

The goal to grow clean energy in the country was made public in 2015 when the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Sudirman Said Sunday met the Deputy Governor of Bali I Ketut Sudikerta, to discuss and convey a vision to make Bali as a pilot area of clean energy. The meeting was conducted on the sidelines of a working visit to the province of Bali Sudirman Said. In response, Sudikerta welcomed the plan by the Minister. This was regarded as being in line with the vision to make Bali clean and green.

“The choice of Bali as demonstration areas for much visited by tourists, both local and foreign, so its adoption as demonstration areas can be quickly dispersed and followed other areas,” said Sudirman said in a statement.

The push for clean electricity is timely and welcomed.
