In the 2018 fiscal year, the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources through the Directorate General of EBTKE implements the installation of PJU-TS in 26 Provinces and 167 Regencies / Cities with a total of 21,839 PJU-TS.

In South Sulawesi Province itself in 2018, as many as 1,977 PJU-TS were built, spread over 15 regencies / cities. The construction of the PJU-TS in South Sulawesi Province was the proposal of the Regency / City Government as well as the initiation of Commission VII through Andi Yuliani Paris, which included in Maros District 144 Titik, Kab. Soppeng 85 points, Bone Regency 50 Point, and Wajo Regency 323 Point. (sk)
