General Manager of PLN Maluku and North Maluku Region Djoko Dwijatno conveyed with the operation of electricity village in some areas may hopefully improve the economic activities of the community.

"In addition, we will also improve services by inaugurating the Daruba Service Unit into Unit Rayon, so we can be more leverage in serving the community in the island of Morotai and surrounding areas" said Djoko.

Targeted electricity at 6 Villages in Gebe Island, Central Halmahera, North Maluku can be operated by the end of 2017 and targeted by 2018 PLN will re-enable 48 villages in Halmahera and Morotai.

That means, in the future all existing electrical system on Halmahera Island and Morotai Island are already operating 24 hours.

PLN customers throughout the region are now also officially using Prepaid Electricity / Smart Electricity with a total of 71,576 subscribers. Thus, currently 67.05% of all customers in Halmahera and Morotai have used Prepaid Electricity / Smart Power and are targeted as soon as possible all customers in other areas also use it.
