LTSHE is a breakthrough program to illuminate people who have not had access to electricity, especially in villages that are still in darkness, totaling more than 2,500 villages throughout Indonesia. The LTSHE package will be distributed to beneficiaries in border areas, disadvantaged areas, isolated areas and the frontier islands or far from PLN's reach.

"This year, more than 175 thousand houses have been distributed. Next year 150 thousand more, if possible, submit as soon as possible, but please be treated," said Jonan.

Rizal Djalil, Regent of Muaro Jambi and the SKPD of Jambi Province.


"The lamp does not use electricity from PLN, but uses electricity from solar power. If it's been charged, the lights are released like this, so if you go to a neighboring street it's dark, the lights can be used "explained Jonan, he turned on the LTSHE lamp.


"Also used to find fish too. So there are 3 lighting modes, if the brightest one can be released for 6 hours and the same as a 25 watt lamp, if just use for stay in home for chit chat is half-lightly, if want to sleep with  dim light can be up to 48 hours, "said Jonan. k (RWS)
