PLN VS LISTRIK SWASTA

image

Kementerian Energi dan Sumber Daya Mineral (ESDM) akan segera Mengeluarkan peraturan agar swasta bisa menjual listrik langsung ke masyarakat.

Direktur Jenderal Ketenagalistrikan Jarman menyatakan, pada 2018 Indonesia akan mengalami krisis listrik. Hal ini terjadi karena keterbatasan keuangan PLN yang tidak akan mampu memenuhi seluruh kebutuhan listrik nasional. Oleh sebab itu layanan listrik oleh swasta akan diperbolehkan. Jarman mengatakan: “Kalau konsep IPP, swasta bangun pembangkit, listriknya dibeli PLN. Kita mau buat terobosan, dimana pihak swasta bisa bangun pembangkit, bangun transmisi, lalu jual langsung ke konsumen”.

Rencana pemerintah memberi kesempatan kepada swasta memasuki bisnis pelayanan listrik hingga menjual langsung ke konsumen harus ditolak. Pola tersebut akan merugikan konsumen karena akan membayar biaya pemakaian listrik yang lebih mahal. Selain itu, sesuai Pasal 33 UUD 1945, pelayanan listrik adalah sektor strategis yang menyangkut hajad hidup orang banyak, sehingga harus dikuasai negara melalui BUMN sebagaimana diperankan oleh PLN selama ini. Karena itu, kebijakan pelayanan listrik swasta langsung pada konsumen dapat dianggap sebagai pelanggaran konstitusi.

Pelayanan listrik di Indonesia harus dijalankan berdasarkan monopoli alamiah sebagaimana berlaku di banyak negara di dunia.  Dengan monopoli alamiah, biaya pembangunan sarana menjadi lebih murah karena faktor skala ekonomi (economic of scale). Selain itu, dapat pula ditetapkan penggolongan tarif (sosial, rumah tangga, industri, komersial, pemerintah, dan lain-lain) sesuai kemampuan dan kelayakan, sehingga tercipta mekanisme subsidi silang antarkonsumen.

Pemerintah dan DPR dapat menetapkan tarif dan subsidi yang tepat sasaran dan berkeadilan guna menyejahterakan rakyat, sekaligus menjamin keberlanjutan PLN menyediakan pelayanan.

PLN Jadi Kerdil
Pada 2011, total kapasitas listrik yang dipasok swasta kepada PLN melalui pola independent power producer (IPP) berjumlah sekitar 4 GW. Total kapasitas pembangkit yang dimiliki/pasok PLN sekitar 30 GW. Sementara total biaya yang ditanggung PLN sebesar Rp 206 triliun, dimana terdapat pembayaran kepada IPP Rp 30 triliun. Artinya, hanya untuk 13% pasokan PLN harus membayar 16% biaya operasi kepada IPP. Dalam hal ini, PLN harus membeli listrik IPP yang lebih tinggi sesuai harga keekonomian.

Sementara PLN harus menjual sesuai biaya pokok penyediaan (BPP) dengan margin rendah dan menanggung biaya sarana transmisi/distribusi seluruh Indonesia. Pola seperti ini jelas selalu menguntungkan IPP dan merugikan PLN.  Keuntungan yang diperoleh swasta yang memberi layanan langsung minimal akan sama seperti yang dinikmati IPP saat ini karena boleh menjual listrik sesuai harga keekonomian.

“Rasulullah berkata dalam sebuah hadisnya : “Barang siapa yang menjaga diantara hidung dan dagunya (mulut) maka dia akan masuk ke dalam syurga””

Apa itu menjaga diantara hidung dan dagu ? iyalah menjaga Lisan (perkataan/ucapan) Dia tidak akan mengucapkan selain kebaikan. Jika dia tidak bisa mengucapkan ucapan2 yang baik, maka ia diam. #adab

Barang siapa yang beriman kepada Allah dan hari akhir, hendaknya ia mengucapkan kata-kata yang baik atau diam” (HR Bukhari Muslim). 

Muslim yang paling baik adalah, “Seseorang yang membuat muslim lainnya selamat dari gangguan lisan dan tangannya” (HR Muslim).  Mereka menjaga lisannya dari segala ucapan yang bisa menyakiti hati orang.

 

Pelajaran di Awal Tahun (2014)… :)

Mmm..ipit mau ceritalah, diawal tahun ini ada berita2 berikut komentar2 enak2 ga sedap dikit nih :D, ditambah semacam rasa rujak dari perasaan yang campur aduk, haduuhh duuuhh.. ga menahanlah >_< tp klo ingat2 kata2 ini : “Maka nikmat Tuhan kamu manakah yang kamu dustakan?" Ya Allaahh.. maaphkan lah ipit ya Allah.. ipit bergitu banyak maunyaa :((

ingin ini, tapi ga mau kaya gitu. pengen kesini tp ga mau klo ujung2nya gitu..haduuhh X_x,

Sepenggal Kisah Sumatera Bagian Utara dan PLN yang katanya Perusahaan Listrik ‘Lilin’ Negara

Tahukah anda pemakaian listrik mengalami beban puncak sjak pukul 5 disore hari smpai dgn pkl 10 malam? 

Tahukah anda beban puncak di sistem listrik sumbagut stiap malamnya lebih dari 1000mw?!

Tahukah anda bahwa listrik sumbagut sangat kekurangan daya dan anda bertanya kenapaa??!!

Jawabnya : hitunglah brp bnyk bisnis industri yg tumbuh setiap tahunnya, dn bisnis estate perumahan yg berjamur?! sudah?! :)
Kemudian tambahkan lg ukm, koperasi, dan rumah2 penduduk yg bertambah - dan ironinya pembangkit listrik blm kunjung mengimbanginya

PLN terus menerus melakukan kejar mengejar dalam mencari  dan menyuplai Daya Listrik-nya dengan Kebutuhan Listrik Konsumen yang tak kunjung berhenti untuk bertambah.

Lalu anda kemudian kembali bertanya KENAPAA?! Karena membangun pembangkit listrik tidak semudah membangun industri atau real eastat :)

Pembangkit Listrik perlu ijin pembebasan tanah sebagai lahan yg bisa memakan waktu bertahun-tahun karena administrasinya

Pembangkit Listrik butuh tempat pembuangan limbah yg tepat demi menjaga kesehatan dan lingkungan sekitar, dan PLN butuh bantuan Anda, bantuan Pemerintah, bantuan Kita semua untuk melistriki Nusantara.

Bantuan Anda utk PLN : Dengan menggunakan Listrik scr bijak, Membayar Listrik tepat waktu, dan Berfikir, Bersikap, dan Berkomunikasi dgn Cerdas

Bantuan Pemerintah utk PLN : Membentuk Standar Operasional utk memudahkan adm ijin kepemilikan dan pemakaian lahan, utk membangun pembangkit, dan seterusnya. PT PLN (Persero) membutuhkan kerjasama kita semua demi melistriki nusantara.

Bersambung…

"Airport Tax" Kuala Namu Diusulkan Rp 100.000

Kementerian Perhubungan (Kemenhub) sudah menetapkan Bandara Kuala Namu Internasional akan mulai dioperasikan pada 25 Juli 2013.

Bandara ini akan dilengkapi fasilitas yang lengkap, mulai dari sistem check-in terpusat juga adanya sarana transportasi kereta api ke bandara. Sehingga, pajak bandara (airport tax) ini pun diusulkan naik hampir tiga kali lipat.

Herry Bakti, Dirjen Perhubungan Udara Kemenhub menyampaikan, pajak bandara itu sangat bergantung pada fasilitas yang diberikan di bandara tersebut. Fasilitas yang dimaksud seperti luas ruangan bandara, ketersediaan garbarata, dan fasilitas lainnya.

"Usulan dari Angkasa Pura II, airport tax Bandara Kualanamu naik menjadi Rp 100.000. Usulan kenaikan tarif itu karena adanya penambahan fasilitas,” ungkap Herry kepada wartawan di kantornya, Senin (22/7/2013).

Harry bilang, sampai saat ini pihaknya masih belum memutuskan besaran airport tax Kualanamu. Jadi, airport tax bandara tersebut masih akan menggunakan tarif yang lama sebesar Rp 35.000.”Setidaknya airport tax di atas Rp 50.000 karena fasilitasnya sudah bagus,” ungkap Herry.

Herry mengungkapkan dalam beberapa bulan ke depan pihaknya akan memutuskan besaran airport tax tersebut. Dia juga berjanji akan mengajak Yayasan Lembaga Konsumen Indonesia (YLKI) untuk menetapkan airport tax.

Sebagai informasi, luas area keseluruhan Bandara Kuala Namu 1.365 hektare (ha) dengan luas terminal penumpang 11,8 ha. Bandara ini mempunyai panjang landasan (runway) 3.750 meter x 60 meter.

Dengan panjang landasan tersebut, Bandara Kualanamu mampu didarati pesawat berbadan lebar sekelas Boeing B747-400 sampai pesawat Airbus A380. Bandara ini diproyeksikan dapat menampung sebanyak 8 juta penumpang per tahunnya. (Oginawa R Prayogo)

PADAM LISTRIK, DON’T PANIC!! :D

Untuk teman-teman di Kota Medan dan sekitarnya :) - Dikarenakan pemeliharaan mesin pembangkit yang mengharuskan pihak PLN melakukan pemadaman bergilir, ada baiknya memastikan Battery Handphone teman2 dan PowerBank (jika ada) dalam keadaan penuh, Lampu Emergency dalam kondisi baik untuk dinyalakan (untuk siaga jika pemadaman terjadi dimalam hari), dan jika mempunyai genset - pastikan genset dalam kondisi ok untuk di pergunakan sewaktu2 jika pemadaman terjadi, terimakasih :)


Nah, dari pada panik ketika pemadaman dan menghabiskan energi untuk emosi negatif alias amarah2 hehe :D ayo, kita buat persiapan, supaya komunikasi ga terganggu dan belajar jalan teruuss :)

God alone is the Almighty, the Creator, the Sovereign, and the Sustainer of everything in the whole universe.  He manages all affairs.  He stands in need of none of His creatures, and all His creatures depend on Him for all that they need.  He is the All-Hearing, the All-Seeing, and the All-Knowing.  In a perfect manner, His knowledge encompasses all things, the open and the secret, and the public and the private.  He knows what has happened, what will happen, and how it will happen.  No affair occurs in the whole world except by His will.  Whatever He wills is, and whatever He does not will is not and will never be.  His will is above the will of all the creatures.  He has power over all things, and He is able to do everything.  He is the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, and the Most Beneficent.  In one of the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad Peace Be upon him, we are told that God is more merciful to His creatures than a mother to her child.  God is far removed from injustice and tyranny.  He is All-Wise in all of His actions and decrees.  If someone wants something from God, he or she can ask God directly without asking anyone else to intercede with God for him or her.
God is not Jesus, and Jesus is not God.  Even Jesus himself rejected this.  God has said in the Quran:
{ Indeed, they have disbelieved who have said, “God is the Messiah (Jesus), son of Mary.”  The Messiah said, “Children of Israel, worship God, my Lord and your Lord.  Whoever associates partners in worship with God, then God has forbidden Paradise for him, and his home is the Fire (Hell).  For the wrongdoers,3 there will be no helpers.” } (Quran, 5:72)
God is not a trinity.  God has said in the Quran:
{ Indeed, they disbelieve who say, “God is the third of three (in a trinity),” when there is no god but one God.  If they desist not from what they say, truly, a painful punishment will befall the disbelievers among them. Would they not rather repent to God and ask His forgiveness?  For God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.  The Messiah (Jesus), son of Mary, was no more than a messenger… } (Quran, 5:73-75)
Islam rejects that God rested on the seventh day of the creation, that He wrestled with one of His angels, that He is an envious plotter against mankind, or that He is incarnate in any human being.  Islam also rejects the attribution of any human form to God. All of these are considered blasphemous.  God is the Exalted.  He is far removed from every imperfection.  He never becomes weary.  He does not become drowsy nor does he sleep.
The Arabic word  Allah means God (the one and only true God who created the whole universe).  This word  Allah is a name for God, which is used by Arabic speakers, both Arab Muslims and Arab Christians.  This word cannot be used to designate anything other than the one true God.  The Arabic word  Allah occurs in the Quran about 2700 times.  In Aramaic, a language related closely to Arabic and the language that Jesus habitually spoke, God is also referred to as Allah.

The Arabic word  Allah means God (the one and only true God who created the whole universe).  This word  Allah is a name for God, which is used by Arabic speakers, both Arab Muslims and Arab Christians.  This word cannot be used to designate anything other than the one true God.  The Arabic word  Allah occurs in the Quran about 2700 times.  In Aramaic, a language related closely to Arabic and the language that Jesus habitually spoke, God is also referred to as Allah.

More about the first pillar:
God alone is the Almighty, the Creator, the Sovereign, and the Sustainer of everything in the whole universe.  He manages all affairs.  He stands in need of none of His creatures, and all His creatures depend on Him for all that they need.  He is the All-Hearing, the All-Seeing, and the All-Knowing.  In a perfect manner, His knowledge encompasses all things, the open and the secret, and the public and the private.  He knows what has happened, what will happen, and how it will happen.  No affair occurs in the whole world except by His will.  Whatever He wills is, and whatever He does not will is not and will never be.  His will is above the will of all the creatures.  He has power over all things, and He is able to do everything.  He is the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, and the Most Beneficent.  In one of the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad Peace Be upon him, we are told that God is more merciful to His creatures than a mother to her child.  God is far removed from injustice and tyranny.  He is All-Wise in all of His actions and decrees.  If someone wants something from God, he or she can ask God directly without asking anyone else to intercede with God for him or her.
God is not Jesus, and Jesus is not God.  Even Jesus himself rejected this.  God has said in the Quran:
{ Indeed, they have disbelieved who have said, “God is the Messiah (Jesus), son of Mary.”  The Messiah said, “Children of Israel, worship God, my Lord and your Lord.  Whoever associates partners in worship with God, then God has forbidden Paradise for him, and his home is the Fire (Hell).  For the wrongdoers,3 there will be no helpers.” } (Quran, 5:72)
God is not a trinity.  God has said in the Quran:
{ Indeed, they disbelieve who say, “God is the third of three (in a trinity),” when there is no god but one God.  If they desist not from what they say, truly, a painful punishment will befall the disbelievers among them. Would they not rather repent to God and ask His forgiveness?  For God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.  The Messiah (Jesus), son of Mary, was no more than a messenger… } (Quran, 5:73-75)
