PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PT PLN), Indonesia’s state-owned electricity company, and PT MAS Sumbiri, a multinational firm engaged in the production of clothes, have signed a contract for the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates (REC), demonstrating PT PLN’s commitment to increasing the legality of the use of new and renewable energy through the provision.
By purchasing this 1,385kVA REC, PT MAS Sumbiri contributed to the government's effort to accelerate the accomplishment of Indonesia's new renewable energy mix target of 23% by 2025.
The contract was signed by the Manager of PLN UP3 Semarang, Eric Rossi Priyo Nugroho, and the General Manager of PT MAS Sumbiri, Sajith Danansooriya.
As stated by Eric Rossi Priyo Nugroho, REC is a form of PLN's commitment to achieving Indonesia's Net Zero Emissions target by 2060.
The PLN REC service product, according to PLN, can be a solution to encourage the use of renewable energy in the country, particularly in Semarang. Meanwhile, Sajith Danansooriya, General Manager of PT MAS Sumbiri, praised PLN for supplying REC, “I am grateful to PLN for providing us with REC. This makes PT MAS Sumbiri the first MAS Holding company to use entirely renewable energy. I hope that this cooperative relationship will continue.”
