TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The General Manager of PLN Distribution Main Unit (UID), Dody Pangaribuan, met with Jakarta acting governor Heru Budi Hartono to discuss preparation for extreme weather.
"We discuss PLN's readiness to face extreme weather at the end and beginning of the year that results in flooding and damage from falling trees," Said Dody in a written statement, Wednesday, November 23, 2022.
During the one-hour meeting at the Jakarta City Hall, PLN reported several matters in the discussion, including the current condition of electricity in Jakarta and issues requiring strategic decisions.
PLN has also conversed with their customers regarding turning off the electricity at home when a flood occurs. PLN will also do a power cut if there is a high flood that endangers the occupants of the house.
“We urge residents to be patient when the electricity goes out due to flooding. If the flood conditions have receded, we will coordinate with the head of the neighbourhood and community units (RT and RW) to ensure safety before turning it back on," he said.
During the meeting, Heru Budi Hartono requested PLN UID to prioritize the safety of human lives when extreme weather occurs.
