Electrification is one of the driving factors for improving the life quality of a country. Currently, Indonesia electrification is borne solely by Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN), which aren't sustainable and eco-friendly due to its main energy source is fossil fuel. Gorontalo, which is endowed with abundant renewable energy resources has installed many renewable power plant energies, but some of them have stopped operating due to an inability to maintain the operation. In South Dulamayo Village, which its energy supply has already dominated by PLN, there is still a renewable energy power plant. The microhydro power plant project (MHPP) in South Dulamayo has operated for more than seven years old. It currently struggles to maintain its sustainability. This study focused on capturing how the microhydro power plant in South Dulamayo maintains its sustainability. It is possible to keep The MHPP South Dulamayo working together (hybrid) with PLN for several customers, mainly manage by the intervention of UNG researchers.
