Seven points two million families are having no access to electricity services now in Indonesia's rural area. Mostly, people are using traditional kerosene lantern to obtained light. Apparently, the light output of kerosene lamp is minuscule, also harmful to the environment and human health. Hence, we would like to propose a possible green energy, plant microbial fuel cell (P-MFC), to generate electricity in the isolated district. P-MFC is a sustainable and renewable energy which take advantages of photosynthesis process of a plant and bacteria to transform the sunlight into electricity. Moreover, P-MFC is nondestructive, non-food compete, and applicable in the wetlands area and rice paddy field. The study focuses on the current development of P-MFC and reviews three main paradigms. Firstly, the effect of rhizodeposition and photosynthesis processes to plants in producing electricity. Secondly, the current development of P-MFC design and its power generation. And lastly, the potential to implement P-MFC in Indonesia's rural area.
