The availability of electricity was only 20 KW using Solar Cells. It took more than 1MWatt to support the development of Long Apung Airport as the centre of economic of the border region. The capacity of power plants in Kalimantan was 1.999 MW (2015) with peak load 1.667 MW, but the electricity network only reached Melak to Long Bagun so it's still far from Long Bangun Airport. The solution was to increase the renewable energy construction by solar cells and PLT Micro Hydro (River Flow), with a capacity to 144MW renewable energy (2019).
