Nowadays, the growth of population and business activities in a city is creating a new problem, which is the movement of the people itself. Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), which included in public transportation with a dedicated lane continues to prove that this kind of public transportation is effective and efficient to solve that problem by reducing congestion and creating a greener environment. However, MRT requires electrical power in a relatively big number. To meet this requirement and support a greener environment, a study is conducted. The method of this study is to simulate on how much potentially a solar power plant can be built on Jakarta MRT facility and conduct an analysis on engineering, economic, regulation, and strategic of the Company itself. The result is a 451.2 kWp Solar Power Plant could be built on the Workshop Building on Jakarta MRT, has NPV of US$ 44,706.70, and payback period in 12.82 years if the implementation in year 2022. The Cost of Capacity Charge could be avoided by giving the Power Utility Company of Indonesia a Business to Business (B2B) scheme.
