Through the data from the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources in Jakarta, Monday (15/1/2018), the stadium is illuminated by a 3500 lux or three times brighter than before. However, GBK lighting is 50 percent more efficient because it uses LED lights instead of conventional lights, with 610 sets of lights connected to a powerful 80,000 watt PMPO sound system, so the movement of the lights can be in tune with the music being played.

The new face of GBK is followed by a new system of electricity supply. The stadium features a solar panel with a capacity of 420 kWp which is capable of generating an average of 1,470 kWh / day. Complementing the main source of stadium energy derived from solar power, GBK electricity is also connected to a power source from PLN and generator.
