Indonesia unveils net metering scheme for PV installations

The policy is expected to boost the installation of 1GW of PV systems.

Indonesia will introduce a net metering scheme that will make sure residential, commercial and industrial PV installations are entitled to sell excess power to the grid, pv magazine reports.

According to Ministerial Decree n.49 of 2018, the provisions will boost the installation of 1GW of PV systems and the savings of PV systems owners’ bills by 30%. The rules are intended to favour PV installations with high self-consumption rates.

A minimum amount of electricity will be sold to PLN.

The report noted that Indonesia is also supporting large-scale PV as a number of projects have been announced over the past two years. This shift towards PV systems is on the back of the country’s aim to raise its share of renewable energy from 14% to 23% by 2025.
