Interested to become an Independent Power Producer

Fancy having solar panels for the roof?

I don’t know about you. If I have a terrace house and RM30K to spare, I would be bidding for a place to become an independent power producer.

The program allows successful applicants to use the building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) energy system to convert solar energy to electricity which can then be sold to TNB (Tenaga Nasional Bhd). Imagine now, you are the boss selling electricity to TNB!

The use of solar energy reduces carbon in the environment and thus sustains our environment.

Why Bid? The full cost for the system will be more than RM60K. By bidding, you will be given discount. For short term, you won’t recover the money spent on the system. You could only able to recuperate the cost after 30 to 40 years period. Anyway, this should not be the reason why you should not install the system.

You should install these solar panels (the BIPV system) because it helps the environment. It helps sustain a cleaner earth – for a better world to live and for your children.

The second round of bidding will end on Oct 1, 2007.
