Micro hydropower project is one of the important projects for the underserved community in Sarawak. It is aimed to provide the electricity to the communities that live in rural area. Micro hydropower energy is considered as one of the renewable energy besides solar energy, wind energy, biomass and so on. However, the Sarawak government is giving the priority to the development of hydropower energy because Sarawak is blessed with constant volume of rainfall every year. Besides, most of the underserved community in Sarawak is located in the hilly and mountainous area, thus all these conditions makes it best suited for hydropower development.
