It's a shame we do not have the SEDA Feed-in Tariff (FiT) in place in Sabah and Sarawak.

wow..

thanks for the valuable information.. price - Malaysia
maybe I should start to invest in PV installation since current electricity bill really made it a necessity~

plus, you could generate revenue from the installation. May not be that much, but good enough to
offset the monthly electricity & telephone bills.

@Nur Iskandar Nasri -- That could be the reason why SREP only achieve about 61MW capacity Full result of Malaysia's GE13: Parliament
between 2001 and 2010. But then again, RE in the Sarawak's SCORE are mostly big hydroelectric Seats
plants, which might not have qualified for SREP.

i would like to ask something for calculating the efficiency part.
the annual average value in kota kinabalu is 1900kWh/m^2. Assume the efficiency of 15%.
1900kwh/m^2 * 15/100 = 285 Watt per hour, the problem is the unit is kwh/m^2
Melinda is Unduk Ngadau
It should get back 285kW instead of 285 Watt? Kaamatan 2012

@Chin Kok Leong - You are right, the unit should be kWh per sq metre. Looking back, there's also
flaw in the interpretation of solar irradiance data. Should be kWh per sq metre per year instead of BLOG/WEB LISTING
"per hour".
I'll come back to edit the article. Thanks for highlighting. Blog and web listing + link exchange, go to

Green, renewable,
sustainable - they all sound
great and important, but
efficiently managed energy
sources will help preserve mother earth just
as good.


For me, I suppose I'll contribute towards that
goal by sharing my experience and opinion.
