According to him, if in 2019 this project is completed, then the target of the national electricity ratio of 99 percent will be achieved.

"If the electrification program for the village has not been electrified from 2,500 villages, PLN and ESDM will work on it. For ESDM 1,270 villages this year, while PLN is 420 villages. If that is achieved we have achieved an electrification ratio of 99 percent nationally," said in Puldama District, Yahukimo Regency , Papua, Sunday (08/13/2018). He explained the workmanship, to pursue these targets, the government continued to process various programs, one of which was through the provision of Energy-Saving Surye Lights (LTSHE) for areas that were in the Frontier, Outermost, Disadvantaged, and Transmigration Region (4T) categories.

At least 400,000 LTSHE will be distributed throughout Indonesia. Meanwhile, Papua has the largest number of areas that are the target of the LTSHE program. "Incidentally, LTSHE has the most in Papua. There are 51 districts in Yahukimo itself, for this time, 1085 packages (LTSHE) are only for 1 district," he said. With the existence of this LTSHE, residents are given guarantees for the lamp for 3 years. After that, PLN will be directly involved in electrifying these 4T areas.
