Jakarta (ANTARA News) - State-owned electricity company (PLN) is considering imposing a sanction on suppliers who delay their coal supplies to PLN, its president director Fahmi Mochtar said.

"A fine will be imposed as part of efforts to remind them on the importance of their responsibility for uninterrupted national electricity supply," the PLN president director said when attending a function here on Sunday.

On the occasion he was attending the announcement of national electricity saving movement by Vice President Jusuf Kalla`s wife, Mrs Mufidah Kalla.

Fahmi said that the plan should not be viewed as an effort by PLN to take a profit from the fines. "This is more on their responsibility to the national interest," he added.

He said that there would be no problem if coal suppliers were disciplined in supplying their coal. "We hope the fines would resuscitate them of their mistake, so that they would not repeat it."

He said that coal supplies became increasingly important as today the government was realizing a nationwide 10,000 megawatts (MW) coal-fired power plant project crash program.

On the occasion, Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro called on electricity consumers to stop wasteful use of power in order to help curb the increasing electricity consumption.

"If we all lower our power consumption it will help around 100 million Indonesians who have not yet enjoyed electricity supply," the minister said. (*)
