A development in nano-technology allows the creation electronic equipment operating at microwave frequency. Rectenna is a high gain antenna receiver that's good in rectifiers able to converse radio frequency (RF) energy to DC (direct current) power is an evidence of achievement in the field of electronic microwave. With the rapid development in the field of wireless communications the density of microwave energy become higher and allows the microwave energy harvesting and thus stronger recommend to wireless power transmission. But with technology rectenna available at present, there is the question of relevancies is used as the ambient energy harvester from the environment. This study examines the extent to which rectenna suitable for use as energy harvester in GSM900 band around Kuala Terengganu. Rectenna used is from the Powercast P2110 with RF- DC conversion efficiency up to 55% at a frequency of 915MHz. The study found rectenna efficiency can reach more than 40% within about 25 meters from the transmitter GSM. It can be concluded that around Kuala Terengganu energy harvesting process is not perfect yet implemented but by collaboration with the provider GSM900 it allows rectenna used as harvester to their customers.
