Large Scale Solar Farm

Construction & Commissioning

Overview of Large Scale Solar (LSS) in Malaysia

In 2019, Malaysia registered an installed capacity of solar energy of 882MW, and is forecasted to reach 4GW by 2030. An accumulation of such energy capacity is largely represented by solar farms – large scale solar power plants, a growing amenity globally as an alternative source of electricity generation and renewable energy. The possibilities of expanding such large-scale solar farms are vast and far-reaching, with many studies exploring its feasibility to host a large portion of residential and commercial consumption.

 

Within Malaysia, the government has undoubtedly recognised the potential of large-scale solar (LSS) projects in supporting the national electricity grid, on top of its contribution as an environment-friendly source of energy. In line with that, it has –  through the Energy Commission Malaysia (EC) –  rolled out a large-scale solar (LSS) programme that lets you generate your own electricity (capped between an installable capacity ranging 1MW to <50 MW) from the LSS farm, and then sell it to the TNB grid.

Types of Solar Farm in Malaysia

Large scale solar farms are majorly utilised in two ways based on their consumers; a utility-scale solar farm, or solar power plant which produces enough power to be sold to wholesale power providers, or directly owned by a utility company.

With much potential on its development and advancements, large-scale solar projects have been and are currently being built across the country, propelled by government incentives on tariffs and trade schemes as well as hefty investments by those looking for more sustainable sources of energy in the midst of climate change concerns.

 

The Malaysian government has also provided financial incentives to encourage the building and installation of large-scale solar powered farms via various schemes. The Large Scale Solar (LSS) scheme is a prime example, regulated by the Energy Commission and offering large-scale solar farm owners the opportunity to sell generated electricity back to the national TNB grid for a period of 21 years. Other schemes and programmes that are broad incentives for renewable energy utilisation include the Net Energy Metering (NEM) scheme, Self-Consumption (SELCO), the Supply Agreement of Renewable Energy (SARE) and the Green Income Tax Exemption (GITE) – all driven to benefit the economy, creating a spill over effect on multiple sectors in their approach towards more sustainable and environmentally friendly business practices.
