The ten units of bioenergy-based power plant consist of 1 unit of PLTSa, 1 unit of PLTBN, 1 unit of PLTBm, and 7 units of PLTBg.

At the end of the event, the operation of bioenergy power plants provides benefits to corporations, such as decreasing Cost of Supply (BPP). "This we count can lower BPP for West Sumba Rp2.600," said East Java Regional Business Director, Bali and Nusa Tenggara Djoko Raharjo Abumanan.
