Growth electricity consumption in central sulawesi encourages increased utilization of conventional resources such as petroleum products and coal as alternative energy plant. It causes some adverse effect either on the environment, health and economy. As a result, the alternative of conversion energy from non-conventional resources must be provided. Central Sulawesi with coastline about 4,013km has immense potential in developing wave energy as an alternative of Renewable Energy Resource. This paper investigated the potential for wave energy conversion in Lindau Water as an alternative of power plant by using Oscillating Water Column System (OWC). The value of significant wave height and periods are calculated based on the Wilson method, which is then analysed to determine the potential of electricity that feasible converted from wave energy in Lindau waters and potential to applicated wave energy conversion using OWC in Lindau Waters. The result found the conversion of Lindau waters wave energy produce the largest power that can be converted is about 21. 000 watts. Its shows the potential that can be applied to coverage the need electricity by using wave energy in Alindau Village.
