Banjarmasin: Thousands of families living in 23 villages in South Kalimantan Province have not yet enjoyed electricity. Solar and micro hydro power plants (PLTMH) are a solution for providing energy in remote and mountainous areas.

“The electrification rate in South Kalimantan is quite high, reaching 99 percent. However, there are still thousands of families and tens of villages that have not been reached by electricity,” said Head of the Energy Division of the South Kalimantan Province ESDM Office, Sutikno, Friday, 23 September 2022.

Based on PLN data for the South Kalimantan-Central Kalimantan region, the electrification rate in South Kalimantan reaches 99.12 percent or reaches 1.2 million families in 13 regencies/cities. However, there are still 9,149 families in 23 villages where electricity has not been reached.
