Three solar plus storage mini-grids start operations in Indonesia

Indonesia has inaugurated its three solar plus storage mini-grids in three remote villages to supply uninterrupted, off-grid electricity to consumers. The mini-grids have been set up in the villages of Merabu, Long Beliu and Teluk Sumbang, located in the Berau district of East Kalimantan. They have been developed by a subsidiary of Akuo Energy, a French renewable power developer, in Bali. The project has a total solar PV capacity of 1.2 MW, and a lithium-ion battery storage capacity of 2.1 MWh. The system can supply electricity to about 460 households comprising mainly farmers and fishermen. The mini-grids are owned by the local communities and operated by a local board, without state subsidies for the retail tariff of electricity.
