Malaysia NEM

What is Net Energy Metering (NEM)?
  • The concept of NEM is that the energy produced from the solar PV system will be consumed first, any excess to be exported and sold to the distribution licensee (such as TNB /SESB ) will be at the prevailing Displaced Cost which prescribed by the Energy Commission.
  • This scheme is applicable to all domestic, commercial and industrial sectors as long as they are the customers of TNB (Peninsular Malaysia) or SESB (Sabah and FT Labuan).
  • The PV systems are allowed to be installed at available rooftops or car porch only within their own premise.

What are the benefits of NEM?
  • The energy generation by NEM consumer will be consumed first which implies less energy import from the utility.
  • By generating own clean energy, consumers will contribute to the reduction of CO2 emission, hence reducing the carbon foot print and mitigating climate change.
