FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We have the answers

How does the NEM policy benefit its investors?

In replacement of the Feed-in-Tariff (FiT) (registration ended in 2016), the NEM or Net Energy Metering allow owners of a solar photovoltaic (PV) system to export excess generated energy to the distributor license-TNB. The excess energy can be put to good use by generating credits to offset the monthly electricity costs. These credits are eligible for a rollover of up to 24 months but cannot be compensated in the form of cash.

Since 1st January 2019, the NEM policy has been revised to enable these credits to be calculated on a one-to-one basis. The rate which is compensated for the exportation of energy is the same as the tariff rate, instead of the old displaced cost mechanism at a lower prevailing rate.

This move serves to benefit owners by allowing more economic benefits in the exportation of energy. The NEM policy is only applicable in Peninsular Malaysia.

What is the payback period?

The payback period of system owners is dependent on the policies, tariff rate and tax allowances that each business owner is entitled to.

In combination of the Green Investment Tax Allowance and Capital Allowance, owners of a clean energy system who qualify for this tax relief, can realise a potential payback period of 3-6 years, depending on tariff rate in effect.

If you are a homeowner, the payback period is estimated to be about 7-11 years. This depends on the amount of energy currently being used by the household due to the tiered tariff rate for residential properties.

What are the maintenance methods and costs associated with the solar PV system?

The panel surface requires periodical cleaning to achieve optimum level of output. The monitoring system will provide the owner with the dashboard which indicates the current performance of the system. As for maintenance costs, they are varied in terms of different capacities. Some clients would like to leave the operation and maintenance to the expert; thus, they have appointed Plus Solar with an Operation and Maintenance Agreement for a given number of years.

Is there a loan scheme to promote clean / green projects?

The government set up the GTFS (Green Technology Financing Scheme) in 2010, to support the development of Green Technology projects. Green Technology projects that need financing facilities will enjoy a rebate of 2.0% from their approved rate of interests by financial institutions.
