The state railway company PT KAI launched solar panels at 40 stations and two railway workshops as part of its commitment to contribute to Indonesia’s environmental goals through the use of new and renewable energy.


KAI’s President Director, Didiek Hartantyo, stated that the implementation of solar panels aligns with the government’s initiative to reduce greenhouse gases and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060.


In 2023, KAI installed solar panels with a total capacity of 1,072.5 kWp in 40 stations, meeting nearly half of the buildings’ electricity needs. The solar panels also fulfil 39% of the two railway workshops’ electricity requirements.


Key stations include Pasar Senen, Tanjung Priok, Jakarta Kota, Bogor, Yogyakarta, and Surabaya Gubeng, among others. Additionally, the solar panels contribute to KAI’s environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals.
