Solar Hybrid System for Villages

The Sabah State Government had recently provided Kampung Tanjung Batu Latu and Kampung Tanjung Batu Darat with continuous electricity through the constructions of a solar hybrid system.

The System comprises of a solar farm and battery storage facility that collects and generates energy during the day, when no solar source is available, there is a diesel generator as a part of the system.With the solar hybrid system, villagers can now say good bye to the diesel powered electricity generators that requirers regular maintenance and costly fuel supply and could only run for six to eight hours a day. This solar hybrid system has improve the villagers living conditions significantly, now they can own televisions, refridgerators and washing machines as there are consistent supply of electricity to their homes.

This is also one of the ways under the GTP's Rural Basic Infrastructure (RBI) NKRA, where the state government will help provide electricity supply to those who are living in rural areas where the grid connection for energy is not accessible due to geographical circumstances. Other efforts under the programme are such as building and upgrading the rural roads, supply of clean and treated water and housing assistance programme.

Good efforts from the government for resolving the electricity issue in the rural areas. Hope that this effort will be continued.

It takes a lot of effort and time to ensure the rural areas are fully-provided with basic necessities.

Solar hybrid system maybe quite pricey but it is environmental friendly.

renewable energy technologies are ready to play a significant role in the electrification of rural areas not only in this state but around the world to increase modern electricity services in rural areas in an environmentally and socio-economically sound manner.

harap ianya akan diperluaskan lagi dikawasan lain yang memerlukan.

tenaga solar lebih baik, ia lebih mesra dgn persekitaran.

sememangnya sistem solar hibrid sangat sesuai untuk kawasan yang belum mendapat bekalan elektrik namun banyak tanggapan negatif ke atas sistem ini kerana isu bateri asid plumbum.

Alexis said...

semoga rakyat mendapat penjelasan berhubung tahap kesihatan yang dikatakan boleh terjejas dengan penggunaan bateri asid plumbum ini.

Sebaiknya elakan penggunaan bateri asid plumbum mengenai Tenaga Solar ini. Memag kita tahu ini dapat membantu masalah elektrik tapi kita juga perlu peka kepada kesan penggunaan asid plumpun kepada alam dan juga penggun itu sendiri.
