Homeowner wants to save money in their utility bill and pursue a green lifestyle. The amount of money saved is very often determined by the size of the photovoltaic system deployed. However, the maximum return on investment and payback is determined by the tariff and the time of energy consumption. As part of the government’s green initiative, Seda implements the Net Energy Metering program end of 2016. We have priorities the FAQ
to address your most frequent concerns. If you cannot find, the answers, please visit our facebook or the download center, or whatsapp us at 012-3391568.
For YOU to size your solar PV system for your house, you will need the following:
Know the amount of electricity you use daily from your electricity bill (have your latest electricity bill handy).
Know how much roof space you have available for your installation.
If your bill is less than Rm250, and you use most of your electricity in the evening and at night, it is better that you focus on being discipline and use more energy efficient products. Renewable energy is not ready for you at the moment.
Else, your payback is anything between 6 years to 7.5 years. If Tenaga will increase the tariff like 2014 by about 17 percent average, you will expect your payback to be between 4.5 to 6 years, depending on your capital cost and your tariff. So, between the past Feed-in-Tariff, and the Net Energy Metering, NEM is a better choice as you consider that Tenaga will increase your tariff every 4 to 5 years.
Walking with YOU
We will walk you through the numbers together as follows:
i. Look for your usage in the TNB electricity bill, “Kegunaan” in kWh.
ii. Divide that number by 30 days to approximate the kWh used a day.
iii. Divide that number by 3.75hrs (Peak Sun Hours after system efficiency), you will come to the PV system size. Take half of this number, assuming you use half of the energy in the day.
iv. Estimate your roof size in Meter square.
v. Multiply the roof size with 160 W/m2 (power rating of solar PV panel).
vi. Compare iii and v, your solar PV size is determined by the demand requirement or your roof space required.
vii. Depends on your final system size, determine your final system price by multiplying with between Rm6 per watt to Rm5.00 per watt, subject to logistic cost and economy of scale.
