Electrical energy has become a basic need for human being. In some remote areas, however, electricity is unreachable and poses a taboo subject and cannot be enjoyed by local people, such as in Tigaraja Village, Sub-District of Tigadolok, Regency of Simalungun. The sun is a renewable energy that it is beneficial for power plant use. With PLTS, solar energy can be changed into the sun through the solar panel. Battery Charge Regulator (BCR) operates stabilizing voltage from solar panel to battery. The battery will save electrical power to be distributed for household consumption. Since battery power has direct current, however, Inverter operates changing its direct current into alternating current. To optimize absorption of solar energy, a servo motor is used to make solar panel moving by following the sunís path. Arduino Uno as direct control of solar panel using solar sensor gives current for servo motor. Then, the servo motor can move in reverse and forward. Therefore, Household goods, like water pumps, lamps and televisions have been worked when people come home from their work.
