A programme called 'Bright Indonesia' has been launched by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources to increase the electrification rate in the country's eastern provinces.
Antara News reported that through the programme, Indonesia aimed to boost its electrification rate to 97 per cent of the country's total population by 2019.
This would require the building of new power plants, that would include the use of renewable energy sources, with a total capacity of 35 thousand megawatts.
The programme was expected to provide electricity to underdeveloped villages including in Papua and West Papua.
