Project context

MCA was the first ‘demo project’ demonstrating Akuo’s capacity to deliver an eminence project in a complex geographical set-up in remote locations of Kalimantan (Borneo). This Indonesia’s largest hybrid project at the time of construction (2018), was materialized with the support from MCC (Millenium Challenges Corporation).

This project’s main objective is to eliminate the poverty and increase the quality of life thanks to off-grid electricity. Prior to the implementation of this project, villagers had access only 4-hour/day to electricity using communal diesel genset, and thanks this project currently community member benefit for 24/7 electricity access with a tariff decreased by 2,5 time.

Following its four years of operation, Akuo has demonstrated that providing round-the-clock electricity, among which 95% of its resources is renewable, in difficult locations is possible.

By choosing a model of community owned minigrid, Akuo ensures a wide variety of social and economic benefits to local communities – including increased autonomy, empowerment and resilience by providing a long-term income and local control over finances, often in areas where there are few options for generating wealth.
