The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources said Indonesia managed to raise the nation’s electrification ratio to 92.8% in the first half (H1) of 2017, hence achieving its target. The electrification ratio is the percentage of Indonesian households that are connected to the nation’s electricity grid. The 92.8% ratio is a great improvement from 84% at the end of 2014, implying the Joko Widodo government performed well in this area. It targets for “near-universal” electricity access by 2020.
