This achievement is the realization of the government's proposed 35,000 MW program, which will improve the reliability of Java-Bali transmission systems with an additional 227 Giga Watt hour (GWh) of electricity per year.
Furthermore, in the second quarter of 2018, it is planned that additional installed capacity of 110 MW consists of: PLTP Sorik Marapi Modullar Unit 1, PLTP Sorik Marapi Marapi Modullar Unit 2, PLTP Balai Unit 1 and PLTP Sokoria Unit 1.
In the future, the development of the geothermal industry is expected to reach the eastern region of Indonesia and its utilization not only as a generator can also be used directly as for agriculture industry (for example drying of agricultural produce, sterilization of plant media, and cultivation of certain plants) tours that have been done at this time.
