History of PLN
Beginning in the late 19th century, the field of sugar factories and electricity factories in Indonesia began to be improved when several Dutch companies engaged in sugar and tea factories set up electricity plants for their own purposes.
Between 1942-1945 there was a shift in management of Dutch companies by Japan, after the Dutch surrendered to Japanese army forces at the beginning of World War II
The process of transferring power occurred again at the end of World War II in August 1945, when Japan surrendered to the Allies. This opportunity was used by young people and electricity workers through the delegation of Electricity and Gas Workers / Employees who together with the Central KNI Leaders took the initiative to face President Soekarno to hand over the companies to the Government of the Republic of Indonesia. On October 27, 1945, President Soekarno formed the Electricity and Gas Bureau under the Ministry of Public Works and Energy with a power generation capacity of 157.5 MW.
On January 1, 1961, the Bureau of Electricity and Gas was changed to BPU-PLN (Bada General Chairman of the State Electricity Company) engaged in electricity, gas and coke which was dissolved on January 1, 1965. At the same time, 2 (two) companies the state, the National Electricity Company (PLN) as the state-owned electricity manager and the National Gas Company (PGN) as the gas manager, was inaugurated.
In 1972, in accordance with Government Regulation No. 17, the status of the National Electricity Company (PLN) is stipulated as the State Electricity Public Company and as the Holder of the Electricity Business Authority (PKUK) with the task of providing electricity for the public interest.
Along with the Government's policy of providing opportunities for the private sector to move into the electricity supply business, since 1994 the status of PLN has shifted from a Public Company to a Company (Persero) and also as a PKUK in providing public interest until nowSee more
