The electricity subscription is contained in the agreement, namely the Power Purchase Agreement (SPJBTL) in the form of a standard agreement and the agreement has been determined and made unilaterally by PT. PLN (PERSERO). The standard agreement allows for problems in practice in the field, such as turning on the electricity supply, slowing down the rotation of the meter. In this case, it is an act of default which is detrimental to PT. PLN (PERSERO).
