This study aims to provide electricity or renewable energy for the people of Maluku who have not yet obtained access to state electricity services (PLN) or to people who enjoy electricity with a 100% elective electricity. The competitive advantage of power plants in this study is called "DISTRICT (Electric Dispenser) RSS-01". This is to reduce operational costs, because pure energy uses renewable energy in the form of pelton turbines driven by steam pressure from pressurized vessels / boilers. Boiler fuel is obtained from burning biomass such as: dry wood, durian skin, coconut shells, nutmeg shells, or walnut shells that are available in large quantities, but which are still not optimally utilized by the community. Water is fed into a pressure vessel / boiler and boiled until it turns into gas. Operational pressure in the boiler is maintained in variations of 1 and 2 bars. Pressurized water vapor is then channeled to press each blades of the pelton so that it rotates the wheels (runner) of the pelton turbine. The turbine then turns the generator dynamo to produce an electric voltage (Voltage). This research is to see variations in boiler vapor pressure on the amount of electric voltage generated. Research has produced boiler press up to 3 bars without damage (burst, leak). At a boiler pressure of 1 Bar, the charging voltage reaches 17.5 Volts, at a pressure of 2 Bar, the electric voltage reaches 20 Volts, while at a pressure of 2.5 Bar the accumulator charging voltage reaches 50 Volts. The resulting voltage has exceeded the maximum charging voltage limit, 15 volts. For this reason, regulators need to be installed to limit the input voltage to the accumulator.
