The plan is, to hold discussions for find solutions, so investors could continue to run their businesses in Batam.

"Later we will meet with the company. The solution offered, tariff of 10 hours (operations) is a thousand. For 14 hours and above, so that's all. It's not clear," said Rudi.

Meanwhile, if this PLN is reduced, they cannot be subsidized. This problem arose after Rudi revealed complaints from investors who had opened an iron management business over electricity tariffs.

"If oftenly blackout, who is responsible," he said.

Companies engaged in the management of metal or iron, complained if the tariff to be charged was almost twice at normal rate. If you want a normal rate, then electricity usage is done only at night.

Previously, Rudi said the investor was offered, if you want to use electricity at cheap rates, then at night. So they were asked to work at night.

"If you work in the middle of the night, you will get a cheap price. If you work during the day, it will be expensive," said Rudi.
