This study aims to utilizing renewable energy in rural areas using zero energy building (ZEB) concept and feasibility analysis, related to alternative renewable energy-based electricity generation in the use of energy in rural area. The first step, is to find out the amount of renewable energy in each city or district by looking at the average amount of rainfall, average wind speed, and the electrification ratio in each district or city in each province, the second stage is a literature study related to renewable energy technology, and the final step in this study is to determine the feasibility analysis related to the technology of renewable energy resources used by calculating the payback period and determining the cost of electricity produced Alternative 1 was chosen because it is the most efficient choice with only 2.56 years of payback period, suitable for use in rural areas and able to meet all the daily electricity needs of the house, by generating electricity of 1.156 kWh / year, with a COE of Rp1.410. This study compares several alternative of renewable energy technologies (i.e. solar panel and wind turbine) that can be used to meet electricity consumption needs in rural areas, combined with using a pico-hydro rainwater harvesting, which uses rainwater as an alternative energy source.
