• A Government Project For Everyone

    Supported and administered by SEDA (Sustainable Energy Development Authority of Malaysia), you can now profit from a secure investment in renewable energy by selling the power to TNB (Tenaga National Berhad).

  • Make Money From The Sun

    SEDA Feed-in Tariff (FiT) system gives everyone the chance to produce your own renewable energy, make profit and help to conserve the environment. Customized solution is available for everyone depends on the installation capacity (how big is your roof) and cost (how much investment you want to put in).

  • Minimum Maintenance

    Solar photovoltaic (PV) needs little maintenance. You only need to keep the panels relatively clean and make sure no trees overshadow them. Most panels on roof are tilted at 15° or more allows the panels being cleaned by rainfall to ensure optimal performance.

  • Cleaner & Greener

    Cut your carbon footprint: solar electricity is green, renewables energy and doesn't release any harmful carbon dioxide] or other pollutants. A typical home Solar PV System could save over a tonne of carbon dioxide per year - that's more than 30 tonnes over its lifetime.

The future trend and the risk of this investment in term of technology's involved with Solar PV System.

Feature 1

Photovoltaic technology was discovered by a French physicist named Edmund Becquerel in 1839. After 174 years, the highest solar cell efficiency achieved by human being at the moment is around 35%, used for satellite technology. Average solar panel efficiency available in consumer market is around 15%. Solar Photovoltaic technology has matured and its reliability is very high.

Feature 2

Feed-in Tariff policy has interesting history too. It all started in 1970s when oil crisis emerged and United States President Jimmy Carter decided to form government body to research and find out the best way to stimulate renewable energy installation across America, so that they will never be vulnerable to oil & gas. Many policies were introduced but in 1990, Germany modified and invented Feed-in Tariff. It was introduced across nation and it was very successful.

Feature 3

Once you understand the history of solar photovoltaic, its reliability, the history of Feed-in Tariff and its successful introduction in German market, later adopted by almost every country in the world, this investment is a no-brainer if you have the capital, especially in such an early stage, where you can enjoy the benefits of early adopter.

3 Simple Steps

  • 1

    Application of FiT (Feed-in Tariff) from SEDA

    Application to SEDA is fairly complicated and in need of providing few qualification papers recognized by SEDA in order to acquire the license of Feed-in Tariff. Once application to SEDA is done and approved, application for Renewable Energy Power Purchasing Agreement (REPPA) to TNB will follow. REPPA will last for 21 years and FiT rate will be based on the application year throughout the whole contract term.

    Installation of Solar PV System

    Solar PV (photovoltaic) system consists of 3 components, namely Solar Module, Inverter and PV Meter. Solar Module exposed to sunlight and produce Direct Current (DC) in return. DC is transferred to Inverter to be converted into Alternative Current (AC), which is used by all household. AC is then transferred to PV Meter to record the amount of electricity generated in kWh and feed into TNB Grid. TNB will pay the Solar PV System owner based on the data on PV Meter.

  • Personal Loan from Everest Group

    We are so committed to this business that we are offering low interest loan for our customer. Interest from as low as 5.5% per annual and as long as 3 years up to 70% of your total cost.


Let's take a 5kW system for example:
A 5kW system will generate monthly income of RM 705.18, Annual income of RM 8462.16. It cost RM 52,500 including FiT application process, system design, installation, material cost and others. This investment has break-even point of 6.20 years and Return on Investment of 16.12%.
We assume an annual renewable cost of RM300, involving in cleaning the surface of the solar panels once/twice a year.

Feed-in Tariff is a form of government subsidy itself, considering TNB buying your electricity at RM1.3432 per unit whereas you buying TNB electricity at around RM0.30 per unit.
FiT was created and run successfully by Germany in 1990, to promote renewable energy installation in order to counter Oil Crisis in 1970s.

Solar module, inverter and PV meter are covered by manufacturer warranty.
Hanwha Solar Module has warranty period of 12 years. KACO Inverter has warranty period of 7 years. PV Meter is supplied by TNB and similar to our current TNB meter.
If any components of the system become faulty within warranty period, we will cover all repair cost and component replacement cost.

Feed-in tariff rate is determined by SEDA. It is said to decrease annually by 8%. Their logic is as more people install solar system, solar system will become cheaper and government incentive provided shall decrease too. Therefore, having the tariff fixed for 21 years provides better sense of security.

As this investment will last for 21 years, you would like to choose a service provider that has the highest chance of remaining in the business after 2 years, 5 years, even 10 years. There are many service providers in the market, some offers lower quotation but the key thought for this investment is more into sustainability than cost.

Feed-in tariff is transferable if you wish to sell the property (It adds value to your property). So, what happens after the 21-year contract? If we look at Germany now, most people who install Solar PV System used the electricity generated themselves, even though there is Feed-in Tariff available. The reason is electricity price in Germany had gone so high that it is more worthy to use solar electricity than selling it. We will follow that trend for sure.

No, this is not a get rich scheme. This is a government project run by SEDA and TNB with good save the earth initiative.

The contract with TNB is based on a fixed rate for 21 years. In 2013, the rate is 1.1316 + bonus while in 2014, the rate will dropped to 1.0411 and we expect the rate continue to drop every year. You can check the rate at www.seda.gov.my Therefore it does make sense to participate in this program as soon as possible.

Our panels is 20kg per 18 square feet. Therefore, it does not put as much pressure on the roof as a solar water heating system which can be 420kg per 15 square feet for a 300 litre model. We also offered 2 years of warranty on workmanship. If you have any dissatisfaction on our installation such as leakage or system underperformance, we will troubleshoot and repair without any further charges.

One I.C. owner is eligible to apply for two address, one address is eligible to install 12kW maximum. You can apply for more quota but it has to be different address. You can upgrade your existing installed system, but you have to forgo the existing license and fixed Feed-in Tariff (higher rate) and reapply for new quota.

Most of our customers had no complaints to the installed Solar PV System but many of them complained about late payment from TNB. The reason is because customers expected to be paid immediately after TNB Test & Commissioning date, which is not the case.

These are a few steps needed to be done after TNB T&C date:
1. On T&C date, TNB staff needed to fill in a T&C form, bring it back to his/her local TNB station to verify the T&C form.
2. Then, TNB must send a copy of the verified T&C form to Service Provider.
3. Service Provider must write a report including the verified T&C form to SEDA.
4. After reading and approving the report, SEDA will issue an order called FitCD to TNB to communicate that the particular address is good to be paid.
5. Then TNB have to send their staff to the site to read the reading on installed PV Meter and verified that the reading is good and legal. (This is because TNB will pay maximum 135% of the reported annual electricity generated. This is to protect TNB from fraud like owners exposing their installed solar panel to artificial sunlight during night time and other tricks.)
6. Once the reading is verified, then only TNB will issue invoice and start making payments.

If everything here goes smoothly, owners will get their payment in 2 months (fastest). However, there is nothing to worry about because PV meter will run and record every single electricity unit fed into the grid. We are very familiar with all these process and we know who to contact in TNB company when things doesn't go as we wish to. Once you get your first payment, then everything will work nicely from there and you will get TNB payment roughly at the end of every month automatically without delay anymore. Last but not least, our professionalism will make sure everything is okay for you up until you get your first payment.

At the moment SEDA already run out of quota for residential FiT. Scroll down and fill in the form. We'll contact you to get some pictures of your intended property (residential houses, shop lots etc.) for solar system installation and run an assessment to roughly determine the maximum system size available for you. We can also prepare all required documents to get you enroll once the quota is available again.

Initial investment cost is separated into three parts:
1. RM 5,000 upon deposit.
2. After Feed-in Approval Holder application, REPPA application and Installation, around 85++% of the project cost will be paid. 3. Then, RM2000 upon PV Meter installation and TNB commissioning.

The investment cost is negotiable if you wish to order in bulk. Please contact us for more details.

According to Hanwha Product Warranty, the maximum annual depreciation of solar panel is 0.7% and guaranteed for 25 years. It means that after 25 years, the panels is still able to produce around 85% of the rated power. And yes, it will not generate the same amount of power after 5 years. Expected annual power generated will be stated in Feed-in Approval Holder certificate.

Tax deduction and other form of government incentives is not available as Feed-in Tariff itself is a lucrative government incentive if the house owner has the capital to participate. However, under Commercial quota, Investment Tax Exemptions (ITE) can be exploited but commercial quota is not available at the moment.

The investment package will include everything from A to Z up until you start receiving payment from TNB. It means solar panels, inverter, aluminum mounting structure, junction box, cables, earthing work, conduits, cost of application for Feed-in Approval Holder, cost of application for REPPA, PV Meter, Service Agreement Duty stamp, repair cost during component's warranty period are all included.

In terms of radiation, sunlight is a form of radiation too. Solar panel is a component that absorb such radiation and turn it into electricity and transferred through cables. Therefore, solar panel would not be considered as a radiation emission agent, in fact it is a radiation absorbent.
Another component is Inverter. Traditional inverter with transformer does emit electromagnetic wave, similar to components in TNB substation. However, modern inverter are mostly transformerless. If you wish to be sure, you can always ask for transformerless inverter from your selected solar retailer.

The panels are not locked but the mounting is not easily removed too. To address your concern, there is insurance policy for solar PV system which covers theft, fire and lightning that causes fire.

Warranty periods mentioned above are provided by manufacturers such as Hanwha and KACO. If the particular product goes wrong within warranty period and covered within warranty regulations, we will cover all costs such as component replacement cost, repair cost, travel cost etc.

Horizontal angle will bring optimum performance from the solar system. However, 3-5 degree of roof angle is preferred as rainwater might not be able to wash some matters (dust, dead leaves etc) away on a horizontal angle.

Yes, you can apply. As long as your house is connected by TNB power grid, you are paying TNB for electricity and have a running TNB meter, you can participate in FiT program. There is not special infrastructure prerequisite.
