The handover, valued at IDR 2,222,468,882, took place at the Ministry of Finance building in Jakarta.


Sumartono, Head of the BMN Management Center, emphasized Indonesia’s abundant solar energy potential due to its equatorial location, making solar energy a highly promising resource for the nation. The ministry, as a leading sector in national energy management, is committed to fulfilling the mandate of the National Energy General Plan, including promoting the use of PLTS in government, commercial, and industrial sectors.

The construction of the Rooftop PLTS at the Ministry of Finance building aligns with the clean energy use program and signifies the administrative and legal transition of BMN use status.
