KONTAN.CO.ID -JAKARTA. The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) has finally issued the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Regulation No. 26 of 2021 concerning Rooftop Solar Power Plants Connected to the Electric Power Network. This regulation was promulgated on 20 August 2021.

In the rules obtained by KONTAN, it is stated that the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Regulation No. 26/2021 is set on August 13, 2021 and has just been promulgated on August 20, 2021.

This new regulation is the result of a revision of the previous rule which states that in Article 6 of the ESDM Ministerial Regulation Number 49 of 2018, the electrical energy of exported Rooftop PLTS customers is calculated based on the export kWh value recorded on the export-import kWh meter multiplied by 65%. The calculation of electrical energy for PLTS Rooftop customers is carried out every month based on the difference between the value of kWh of imports and the value of kWh of exports.

With the new rules in Article 6, it is stated that PLN is obliged to buy 100% of the price of electricity sold by PLTS Roofing customers, meaning that PLN must buy electricity for Rp. 1,440 per kWh from PLTS Roofing customers. Previously, PLN only bought 65% of the current electricity price.
