Rural Electrification Project

Solar panels.pngFor the first time, PETRONITA Welfare Committee collaborated with UTP and Jabatan Kemajuan Orang Asli (JAKOA), Daerah Batang Padang dan Muallim, Tapah, Perak to implement a rural electrification project at Kampung Batu​ 20, Tapah. This electrification project is intended to improve the quality of the livelihood of the Orang Asli community by providing them access to renewable and clean energy via solar power using the Photovoltaic Electricity Generating System (PVEGS) for the village. In addition to providing electricity, it also allows capability building and self-empowerment through the training on the use of solar electricity system and the scheduled maintenance of the system. This project commenced in November 2015 and took about six months of dedication and hard work to be successfully completed. More than ninety Orang Asli villagers of Kampung Batu 20 will benefit from this project.
