TNB Solar Panel Installation Will Help Langkawi Port Save Around RM5 Million

Tenaga Nasional Berhad via its wholly owned subsidiary, GSPARX has been tasked to install solar photovoltaic panels at the Dermaga Tanjung Lembung Complex in Langkawi for Langkawi Development Authority (LADA).

Among the entities that have and will become prosumers through the collaboration are Seberang Perai City Council (MBSP) (100kWp) in Penang, Subang Jaya City Council (100kWp) in Selangor, Nuclear Agency of Malaysia (460kWp) in Selangor and Tunku Kurshiah College (314 kWp) in Negeri Sembilan. To date, under the solar PV panels scheme, Net Energy Metering (NEM) and self-consumption or SELCO which have been implemented by the Government, 840 customers had inked
    agreements with GSPARX through Supply Agreement of Renewable Energy (SARE) and direct purchase to generate about 103MWp of green energy.
