PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) has announced that Indonesia’s domestic per capita electricity consumption reached 1,150 kWh in 2022, lower than that of other Southeast Asian countries. Additionally, per unit cost of electricity was also lower than that of other SEA nations during the same period.

Compared to Vietnam’s average electricity tariff of USD0.107 per kWh, Thailand’s USD0.107 per kWh, Philippines’ USD165 per kWh, and Singapore’s USD195 per kWh, Indonesia’s average tariff is USD0.101 per kWh.

However, consumption has started to increase in recent months, with October 2022’s electricity consumption rising by 13 percent compared to the average monthly consumption in the last 5 years.

Use of alternative and green energy has also increased in Indonesia, mainly due to PLN’s initiatives like the induction stove program and collaborations with state enterprises for the transition from fuel oil to electric energy in the country.
