Net Energy Metering (NEM)

Net Energy Metering (NEM) 3.0 is a government initiative introduced in 2021 to encourage the use of renewable energy, particularly solar energy, among consumers in Malaysia. The program has a quota allocation of 1050 MW up to date, which is available from 2021 to 2023. Under NEM 3.0, several new initiatives have been introduced to increase the uptake of solar energy, and it is regulated by the Energy Commission (EC), with the Sustainable Energy Development Authority (SEDA) Malaysia serving as the implementing agency. These initiatives include NEM Rakyat, NEM Gomen, and NEM Nova. Additionally, virtual NEM has been introduced to allow commercial and industrial sectors to generate and distribute solar energy. 

As a commercial or industrial user, you can take advantage of NEM 3.0 to generate your own electricity through solar panels and reduce your reliance on traditional energy sources.

~300 MW Quota left for Commercial & Industrial Users 

The NEM NOVA program aims to help businesses in the commercial and industrial sectors reduce their operating costs by adopting solar PV systems. Successful applicants to the program can: 

  • CONSUME the electricity generated by their solar PV system 

  • SELL any excess electricity generated by their solar PV system back to the grid at the market rate or System Marginal Price (SMP). The electricity sold will be converted into credits and reflected in the following month's electricity bill 

  • OFFSET any excess electricity generated by their solar PV system by distributing it among up to three different electricity bill accounts under the same name through virtual aggregation

The first phase of the NOVA program had an allocated quota of 300 MW which started on the 1st of April 2021 and was fully utilised within 3 months. The program was targeted to last until Dec 2023. Due to the overwhelming response, the government of Malaysia has decided to allocate additional quotas to further drive the green agenda for Malaysia.

As of today, the total quota for the NEM Nova program has been raised to 800 MW. However, more than 400 MW have already been occupied, leaving only around 300 MW available for businesses to register. Don't wait too long, register now before it's too late!
