The existence of electricity can encourage the improvement of the quality of life of the community. However, there are several problems with the provision of electricity in remote areas, including difficulties in delivering electrical equipment and fuel. One solution to solve this problem is implementing local waste utilization as fuel for power plants. This study aims to implement Waste to Energy using gasification technology on Tinggi Island, South Bangka. The methods used in this research are to calculate the potential amount of waste, design the equipment specification, make the supporting facilities, and do a testing experiment. Due to the low waste potential in Tinggi Island, local communities’ waste processing is carried out in Toboali. The waste processing stages are sorting, fermentation, chopping, drying, and pressing. The waste pellets from Toboali are sent to the powerhouse in Tinggi Island. From the performance and reliability test in the electrical side, it can be concluded that the voltage and the frequency generated is stable and within the safe limits according to Regulation of the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources No. 03 of 2007. The consumption of waste pellets needed to generate electricity during the reliability test (75% loading) is ten kg/45 minutes. Through the continuous implementation of waste to energy, Tinggi Island can be electrified all day long and solve the waste problem.
