Quota for 20MW Solar Photovoltaic released by SEDA Malaysia taken up within an hour
 

 

Putrajaya, Friday (5th April 2013) : Sustainable Energy Development Authority 
Malaysia (SEDA Malaysia) released 20 MW of solar photovoltaic (PV) quota for the 
non-individuals under the 500kW category on 2nd April 2013 at 12.00pm. According to 
the Chairman of SEDA Malaysia, YB Tan Sri Dr Fong Chan Onn, the quota was taken 
up within the first hour of the release. This fast take up rate of solar PV quota took 
place against the backdrop of the recent increase of degression rate for installed 
capacity for solar PV greater than 24 kW, from 8% to 20%. There were altogether 137 
solar PV applications submitted via the e-FiT online system by the end of the hour. 
 
SEDA Malaysia had made an early analysis that 99.45% of the solar PV 
capacities submitted in the e-FiT online system were larger than 24 kW which had the 
higher degression rate,” added YB Tan Sri Dr Fong. Thus, it could be concluded the 
20% degression rate recently gazetted within the Schedule of the Renewable Energy 
Act 2011 for solar PV projects larger than 24 kW is still commercially viable. 
 
SEDA Malaysia also advised those who are successful in obtaining the quota to 
ensure their solar PV system will achieve FiT Commencement Date by 31st December 
2013 to ensure they enjoy the feed in tariff rate for this year. Those who are unable to 
commission their system before 1st January 2014 will have their rates degressed by 
another 20%. 
 
“Prior to the opening of the quota, SEDA Malaysia has reminded all 
prospective applicants they are fully responsible in ensuring compliance of all 
submitted information/documentation” said YB Tan Sri Dr Fong. Submission of the 
update/registration of the profile alone does not mean compliance to the submission 
process and mandate SEDA Malaysia’s approval. SEDA Malaysia will have the right 
to refuse an application or revoke the Feed-in-Approval (where applicable) should any 
of the information/documents submitted were found to be untrue or falsified. 
 
YB Tan Sri Dr Fong also announced SEDA Malaysia has received a directive 
from the Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water; effective 1st January 2014 
until 31st December 2017, the degression rate for solar PV for individuals will be 
reduced to 0%. Currently, the degression rate for solar PV for individuals is set to 8%. 
This means the feed in tariff rates for solar PV for individuals will remain the same for 
the duration. With the reduction of degression rate to 0% for solar PV for individuals 
the Ministry hopes for greater public participation in the Solar Home Rooftops 
Programme. The Government anticipates with more engagement in solar PV by home 
owners will result in a greater willingness from the public to contribute to the 
renewable energy (RE) fund.
