Pestech Energy Rural Electrification Solutions recognized by Chief Minister of Perak
Solar Energy is the answer to rural electrification, ensuring those in remote areas with no connectivity to the national grid are still able to enjoy the necessities of life such as refrigerators, lighting, television, computers and the internet. In spite of major advances in energy distribution there are still numerous rural areas within Malaysia requiring electrical connectivity. Living without electricity means that these rural folks depend on natural daylight for many of their activities.
The Chief Minister of Perak was briefed about the challenges Pestech Energy had resolved in ensuring a working solution at the solar site. His humorous response was “I chose the place because I thought of giving you the biggest challenge… If you can do it here, you can do it anywhere else…”
The project covers the entire village of Kampung Orang Asli Batu 23, where a total of 15 out of 20 houses received electricity each now equipped with 3 lighting points and 2 socket points, benefiting 100 people with an average electricity load of about 2kwh per house. With the completion of this project Pestech Energy has successfully delivered electricity to this village, after over 2 decades without electricity.

The Chief Minister of Perak Dato’ Seri Haji Ahmad Faizal bin Dato’ Azumu addressing the crowd, indicated that things had changed now with the introduction of electricity. He kindly offered to buy a television for the village children. The ability of the villagers to have lighting, refrigeration, computers, etc. will add to their quality of life and enable children to study and improve their futures.
