Electricity Void Stunting Island Outer Growth

While in the South, recent news is that Koh Lone will obtain a list some limited electricity service by means smallish hydro-electric facility. Depending on water resources and rain, this will only provide enough power for low rated fluorescent lighting.
In some ways Phuket and Bali are seeing similar issue in the age of the tourism boom, with the later mainly restricted to the Southern part of the island, and there is a continued concern over the divide between haves and the have-nots.
