The demand of Indonesia's electricity have been derived from conventional energy mining products such as oil and coal. Most of the mining products other than being exported abroad are also used for domestic consumption, such as being used by some sectors such as transportation, industry, residential areas and others. The use of solar energy sources in Indonesia has a very good prospect, given that geographically as an equatorial tropical country has a pretty good potential of solar energy with a large daily insulation that can be developed as a valuable energy source and is available throughout the year. Because this power plant uses photovoltaic conversion in utilizing solar energy or more commonly known as a solar power plant and no longer to require fuel. Solar Power Plants are an energy source that produces electricity that is environmentally friendly and does not use materials fuel oil, so it's very cheap, because solar/solar energy is an unlimited source of energy.
Pertamina Power Indonesia carried out various initiatives related to the development of Renewable Energy, including the installation of Solar PV as a solar module-based renewable energy power plant in various regions in Indonesia. One of which is Badak 4 MW Solar Power Plant.
