Abstract

The renewable technology is very important in our day lives. The impact of renewable technology are improving lifestyle, meet the basic electricity for rural need and the impact to green environment. Currently the community in Mersing use grid power source supply by Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB). Abundant and consistent of wind speed in Mersing are potential enough to develop wind turbine. This will generate renewable energy (RE). However, the drawbacks of device utilization gives burden to the community. To initiate the project, Solar Energy Research Institute (SERI), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) has developed wind turbine in Kampung Tanjung Resang, Mersing, Johor, Malaysia. This study presents the acceptance and the impact of wind energy of the people in Tanjung Resang. The procedure of this research is done based on qualitative method through survey sampling and non-directive interviews to the villager. From the survey and interview, they were completely relying with the benefit yield from wind technology. Based on survey sampling, we classified the factor that can give the impact to the people in Tanjung Resang. In long term, wind energy can improve the quality of life for the people in this area.
