The government through the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources continues to encourage the use of Renewable Energy (EBT) in the country. It aims to reduce reliance on fossil energy use.

Technology companies also welcomed the government’s move. A number of companies continue to develop new renewable energy sources both to meet the needs of electricity in buildings and mobility through electric vehicles. One of the ones currently developed is solar cell.

Pt Utomodeck Metal Works Rooftop Industry Practitioner Anthony Utomo said it is possible for electric vehicles to utilize solar cell sources. Where this technology is equally carrying the concept of environmentally friendly. In addition, commercial buildings or commonly called high rise buildings become one of the trends in urban development. Where the concept of intelligent building or smart building with clean energy can be applied integrated with solar roof, solar glass or solar pedestrian.

“Through this phenomenon, building owners, architects, home designers and governments should be able to understand trends and challenges including mixing clean energy to build integrated photovoltaic (solar/PV) solutions. Including for the energy source needs of electric vehicles,” he said in Jakarta.

He sees the opportunities for the development of solar energy sources in Indonesia are huge. Moreover, indonesia’s geographical location makes it one of the best energy sources in the world.

Economically, Anthony claims the use of Rooftop Power Plant can save electricity costs up to 15 percent-30 percent per month, while the investment is covered in the 6th to 9th year after the hydropower plant is operated. In addition, the period of use of solar panels according to him can reach 30 years with minimal maintenance.
With that advantage, it is natural that the demand for solar PV installation continues to increase, especially since the publication of Permen ESDM No. 49 Year 2018, where building owners can utilize Solar PV as the main power source without batteries with export system – import to PLN with various applications such as PV Glass Window, Solar Rooftop or PV Road,” he said.

Utomodeck said he now offers a solar panel rental system for use for up to 30 years. But for this system the new Utomodeck provides it for the government, factory, and commercial building segments.

As for residential according to him still use the system of selling – buy with investment of Rp15 thousand per 1 wp (watt peak).

Anthony said during the lease period of solar panels, it guarantees the maintenance and repair of equipment. “Actually our solar PV will be minimal maintenance, most only routine cleaning of dirt with a tool usage period of 25 years to 30 years,” he said.

Anthony said it has now partnered with solar panel hired to generate 660 kwp of electricity spread across 11 locations. The cost of renting the tool according to him depends heavily on the location of the user.

Meanwhile, in order to accommodate the growing demand of customers who want the use of solar PV must be in accordance with the design of the building as well as local wisdom, Otomodeck has established a partnership with Hanergy Group. It is the world’s largest manufacturer of thin solar cell films.

Hanergy’s production is not only solar rooftop, but can also be applied in glass windows of buildings, carports to the street or other.

“So if there is a request for design, including a request for the integration of solar PV applications, we are ready to support and we have also partnered with Hanergy, so that the final application is not only on the roof, but also in other places as customers want,” he added. [idr]
