HOW DOES SOLAR PV SYSTEM WORK?
Solar power works by converting light from the sun into electricity. This electricity can then be used in your home or exported to the grid when it’s not needed. This is done by installing solar panels on your roof which generate DC (Direct Current) electricity. This is then fed into a solar inverter which converts the DC electricity from your solar panels into AC (Alternating Current) electricity.
WHAT HAPPENS TO SOLAR ENERGY WHEN I'M NOT AT HOME?
If your solar production is more than your energy consumption. Excess energy generation will flow to TNB grid. If you are under Net Energy Metering Scheme, TNB will buy the excess energy and credit back to your electricity account.
HOW DO I MAINTAIN SOLAR PV SYSTEM?
You don't have to periodically maintain your solar. Solar energy system is no maintenance product
HOW LONG DOES THE SOLAR PV SYSTEM LAST?
Typical life span of solar pv panels is 25 years or more and 5 to 10 years for the inverter. Typically, the manufacturer will guarantee performance of the solar pv panels for 25 years. This guarantee however, does not cover poor performance due to damages such as vandalism, hail or theft. The guarantee also does not cover poor workmanship. Hence, it is important that you choose good and reliable solar installer.
WHAT IS NEM?
NEM or Net Energy Metering is a mechanism for you to use solar energy that you produced for your own consumption. The excess energy generated will be exported to TNB grid and will be turned to credit that may be used to offset part of the electricity bill. Visit www.seda.gov.my for more information
CAN I REDUCE ELECTRICITY COST BY GOING SOLAR?
Yes. Typical saving is between 10-15% depending on your pv size, financing option, actual solar energy production and system performance. Check out our solar calculator to estimate how much saving you can get by going solar.
WHAT ARE THE FACTORS THAT DETERMINE HOW MUCH I CAN SAVE BY GOING SOLAR?
Many factors determine solar energy production. For example, if there is shading on your roof due to tall building or trees, this will reduce the amount of your solar energy production. Cloud and rain will also reduce how much energy being produced.
IS THERE ANY GOVERNMENT TAX INCENTIVES FOR GOING SOLAR?
If you are a business owner, you are eligible for Investment Tax Allowance (Check out MIDA website). However, this is only applicable if you finance your solar project either through cash, loan or lease and not through Solar Energy Purchase.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF GETTING SOLAR ENERGY?
Once we receive your registration, we will check site suitability. When we know all in good condition, we will install the solar.
