Konawe Utara - A total of 148 units of Energy Saving Solar Lamp (LTSHE) distributed by the Government in 2018 provide convenience for the people of Konawe Utara, Southeast Sulawesi Province to carry out activities at night. This was revealed by Endang, Head of the Transmigration Settlement Unit (UPT) of Puuhialu during the symbolic hand over of Energy Saving Solar Lamp (LTSHE)  by the Director of PEM AKA Migas, Perry Burhan on Monday (1/8).


"Alhamdulillah, with the help of this Energy Saving Solar Lamp (LTSHE), the people were greatly helped by information when at night, there was no activity before night," said Endang. Initially the UPT Puuhialu community used petromak or light at night. The existence of Energy Saving Solar Lamp (LTSHE)  is very helpful for the community, especially school children, can learn at night and is also used to take care of rice fields from pig pests because the majority of Puuhialu's livelihoods are farmers.


In line with Endang, Ujang, one of the residents of UPT Puuhialu, expressed his gratitude for the installation of Energy Saving Solar Lamp (LTSHE)  at his home. "Alhamdulillah, previously  dark so after there was a light making things easier. Playing to the neighbors so I could bring lights, bringing the motorbike there was no light so that I could also take a motorbike. It was also we are transmigration people who get used to have electricity now its dark we can't really do activities at night , so it's sad, "Ujang said.


UPT Puuhilu is one of the recipient villages of Energy Saving Solar Lamp (LTSHE)   in 2018 in North Konawe Regency, together with Tapunopaka Village, Lasolo District. The total Energy Saving Solar Lamp (LTSHE)    distributed to North Konawe was 148 units. The journey to reach UPT Puuhialu, Oheo Subdistrict must be taken about 4-5 hours from downtown Kendari, where some of the road conditions are damaged and also pass through the nickel mine area.



On this occasion, Perry Burhan said that since 2017 the Energy Saving Solar Lamp (LTSHE)   Program has installed 252,000 units, and specifically for 2018 implemented in 16 provinces which illuminate 1610 villages with 172,996 units. "In 2019 there are almost 100,000 units that will be installed throughout the country. If we look at it now, if we go up high, how come from the air that night, maybe Java is part of Sumatra and Bali. Yes hope Pak Jokowi throughout this homeland if you see the night glowing, "he continued. Burhan also hopes that indigenous people can operate the Energy Saving Solar Lamp (LTSHE)   well and can participate professionaly to develop North Konawe. (sk)
