The electrification project is known as Limar, an acronym for People's Independent Electricity, and was initially a battery-based power supply program but was upgraded to an electricity grid system in November 2017.
 
The three fortunate villages now connected to the grid are Omawita, Fanamo and Otakwa.
 
"Freeport Indonesia invests in the future of the local community where it operates. From 1996 to 2016, the Freeport Partnership Fund for Community Development has invested more than $680 million in the local community," the company said.
