TIMOR TENGAH SELATAN - Residents of Nule Village, Timor Tengah Selatan after a long time can finally feel the light at night due to the presence of Energy-Saving Solar Lights (LTSHE) that have been distributed and installed in each of their homes.


"So far, we have only seen, not yet enjoying the lighting, there are only oil lamps. Thankfully, now 50 family heads have installed these solar lights," said Oscar, the Nule Village Chief, when meeting with the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources representatives on Monday (11/12) Nule Village, Timor Tengah Selatan Regency, East Nusa Tenggara Province.


Nule village is one of the recipient villages of LTSHE in Timor Tengah Selatan District (TTS) in 2018. It is targeted that the installation of 52 units of LTSHE in Nule Village will be 100% completed in the third week of December 2018. The total installation of LTSHE for East Nusa Tenggara Province in 2018 is 4,284 units spread across 9 districts (52 villages).


LTSHE is a program that was mandated by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources by the President as an information and electricity energy solution, which is focused on isolated villages that are difficult to reach by the electricity grid. According to BPS data, currently there are around 2,500 villages that are still pitch black or around 256,114 houses.


"The use of the National Budget must be felt directly by the community, especially the people in the furthest, outermost and isolated areas. The LTSHE program is one of the instruments to ensure that all communities get access to modern energy as an effort to create equitable energy," said Inspector I of ESD M. Halim  while leading a working visit to Nule Village. Halim also expressed his appreciation for the support of the Provincial Government and the District / City Government of NTT so that the installation of LTSHE in NTT could be carried out.


Nule residents expect the use of LTSHE to be felt for a long time and free of charge. "For a long time waiting for this information, but not until the next two years, there are those who come and take or will be charged later," said one resident of Nule Village. The government ensures that the LTSHE program is distributed free of charge, and that the lights obtained by the community cannot be traded because each lamp has its own serial number. With a 3-years warranty, residents can exchange LTSHE units if there is any damage. (sk)
