This program is extended for three months, namely October, November and December 2020.
The government decided to extend incentives in the form of electricity bill exemptions and discounts for subsidized 450 VA and 900 VA household customers.
As well as the 450 VA business and industry groups until December 2020.
Initially, the electricity bill stimulus for subsidized 450 VA and 900 VA household customers was only in effect from April to September.
Meanwhile, the stimulus for business and industrial customers is 450 VA, initially set for May to October.
However, the government decided to extend it until the end of the year, after seeing the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic that is still being felt by the community today.
To date, there are 24.16 million 450 VA household customers who get free electricity and 7.72 million subsidized 950 VA household customers who get a 50 percent discount.
