Specific project under Sadaqa House
To provide solar system – renewable energy for Orang Asli and underserved communities in rural area.
Project was undertaken by Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) as to provide cheaper and more sustainable solar power to Orang Asli and underserved communities in Malaysia. The higher cost of using generator set to produce electricity is unbearable for the community. With the solar power installation, the cost reduction is almost minimal. The first project with UTM at Kampung Orang Asli Woh Intake, Tapah, Perak has completed in February 2020. With unlimited electricity supply, children in this area would be able to do school work and revision during night.
