EAST SUMBA, NTT – Passing through the green rolling roads, with magnificent scenery, accompanied by clean blue sky decorated with rolls of brilliant clouds, is a distinctive sight in the hills of Sumba. One of the distinctive features, there is no view of power lines along the hill roads. Because there is clearly no power grid in sight. However, this lack of electricity seems to be partially solved. Lulundilu Village, Mahu Subdistrict, East Sumba Regency, is one such example. The existence of an Energy Kiosk in the village has helped the villagers coming out of the darkness and communication issues.
