The need for energy in Indonesia continues to increase and the Indonesian government is keen to realize the development of electricity transmission network in Alam Pauh Duo, Alam Pauh Duo Sub-district, District of Solok Selatan. The topography of this region consists of Geomorphology Units of the Hills and High Geomorphological Units with an altitude of about 900-500m (meters) with lithology composed of volcanic rock and intrusion of granite and granodiorite. The method used in the review survey (reconnaissance) is road sweeping or tracking using a handheld GPS. The result of this mapping and assessment are the coordinate values of the markers or dividing marks that are already available and scattered in each location point. The final result is a map that has a description of the location of Land Power Plant and Transmission Tower. There are 15 transmission towers planned for the builders as well as the power plant (GI). The required land area of each transmission tower is about 15x15 m (meters) up to 20x20 m and the land area for 3ha (hectare) power plant (GI) development. Then the distance between each tower transmission approximately 200 meters.
