How Solar Lights is Helpful in Communities
Installing Energy Saving Solar Lights
Marves – Jakarta, In the context of utilizing renewable energy in government buildings, the Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs and Investment through the Assistant Deputy for Mineral, Energy and Non-conventional Resources, the Deputy for the Coordination of Natural Resources and Services will install an Energy-Saving Solar Lamp (LTSHE) on Monday (12/16/2019) at the Marves Kemenko Office, Jakarta. Secretary of the Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs and Investment Agung Kuswandono witnessed the handover of the LTSHE from PT. Adyawinsa Solar to the Head of the General Bureau by receiving three packages where each solar panel can power 4 LTSHE.
Sesmenko Agung said that Indonesia is very large, more than 17,000 islands so that the distribution of electricity can not be only through cable. Communities in remote areas also have the right to get online lighting Australia electricity such as lights for their lives.
As a result of the unavailability of lights, Sesmenko Agung added this made the quality of children’s education decline because children could not learn effectively in the dark. LTSHE uses solar power where Indonesia is on the equator, so the sun shines throughout the year.
Furthermore, Sesmenko Agung also advised that the distribution of LTSHE not only to individuals or families but also to schools, Islamic boarding schools, farmer groups or business groups whose nature is to develop the education sector in the regions is still not electrified.
Director of Operations of PT. Adyawinsa Solar Anshar Muchtar said that he was very pleased to be involved as an LTSHE provider and get a positive response from the community. This LTSHE program has been running since 2017 and will then set up a service center so that if there are complaints or damage from the community related to LTSHE, treatment can be given as soon as possible and replaced during the 3-year warranty period.
In the future, there will be other programs that are more or less the same, but the scale is greater, such as a rooftop that will be given to pesantren or rural areas where there is no electricity or very little electricity.
