Corporate Green Power Programme (CGPP)
The Corporate Green Power Programme (CGPP) is a renewable energy initiative spearheaded by the Malaysian government. Designed to drive the adoption of sustainable practices, CGPP offers corporate consumers the unique opportunity to virtually purchase solar energy directly from solar developers. This innovative programme transforms the way businesses access and benefit from solar energy without the need for physical ownership or management of solar panel installations. Through virtual power purchase agreements (VPPAs), corporate consumers can actively participate in the renewable energy movement, supporting clean power generation and reducing their environmental impact.
How CGPP Works?
The Corporate Green Power Programme (CGPP) operates through a systematic process that allows corporate consumers to procure renewable solar energy virtually. The following diagram presents an overview of the CGPP framework:
In essence, the Corporate Green Power Programme (CGPP) operates through a dynamic energy delivery and transaction process involving three key parties as follows:
Solar Power Producer (SPP):
Takes charge of developing, owning, and operating the solar power plant.
Corporate Consumer (CC):
Receives electricity supply from the Electricity Utility Company.
Electricity Utility Company (EUC):
Facilitates the delivery of electricity from various generation sources, including the solar power plant.
Under the Corporate Green Power Agreement (CGPA), the Corporate Consumer agrees to purchase energy generated by the Solar Power Producer at an agreed price or price structure. If the Actual SMP exceeds the CGPA price, the Solar Power Producer compensates the Corporate Consumer for the difference, and vice versa.
Key Financial Transactions
The financial transactions between the Corporate Consumer and the Solar Power Producer are as follows:
Payment from the Electricity Utility Company to the Solar Power Producer
For the energy quantity E1 (kWh) exported by the solar power plant, the Electricity Utility Company pays the Solar Power Producer an amount P1 based on the Actual SMP (RM/kWh) in that specific half-hour time frame.
P1 = E1 (kWh) x Actual SMP (RM/kWh)
Payment from the Corporate Consumer to the Electricity Utility Company
For the energy quantity E2 (kWh) supplied by the Electricity Utility Company to the Corporate Consumer, the Electricity Utility Company charges the Corporate Consumer an amount P2 based on the approved tariff rate T (RM/kWh) of the company.
P2 = E2 (kWh) x T (RM/kWh)
Financial settlement between the Corporate Consumer and the Solar Power Producer
If the CGPA specifies an energy price C (RM/kWh), the financial settlement amount P3 between the parties for the energy quantity E1 (kWh) exported by the Solar Power Producer depends on the difference between the energy price C (RM/kWh) in the CGPA and the Actual SMP (RM/kWh).
If C > Actual SMP :
The Corporate Consumer pays the Solar Power Producer an amount P3 = E1 (kWh) x (C - Actual SMP)
If Actual SMP > C:
The Solar Power Producer pays the Corporate Consumer an amount P3 = E1 (kWh) x (Actual SMP - C)
Note: The CGPA may involve a fixed price or a specific price structure, which affects the financial settlement accordingly.
