The objective is to enhance awareness on the importance of Renewable Energy in Malaysia as well as improving its deliveries to the public through facilitation of discussion and dialogue.

Sharing with your blo readers what transpired at the dialogue yesterday.

====At a forum organized by SEDA yesterday, SEDA CEO Datin Badriyah Abdul Malek stated that there will be no more quota release for 2013. Anybody interested to install grid connected solar system will have to apply for 2014 quota.

Other major points raised during Q& A:
- after 21 year Renewable Energy Power Purchasing Agreement (REPPA) between FiAH and TNB expires, a Net-Metering scheme would probably be used. Net metering means the energy from the solar panel can be used by the home owner. Any excess electricity not used by the home owner will be exported to TNB's grid and the amount will be deducted from the owner's electric consumption bill.
- Additional bonus rate for solar panels used as a building material will be subject to verification by SEDA inspector
- FiAHs can check TNB e-Services website after mid Nov 2013 where they can view their RE Payment Advice
- if one's solar PV system is not performing, there will be no penalty from TNB (only for residential installation.)
- to increase solar system capacity, one must apply to SEDA, approval is subject to quota availability
- SEDA has submitted proposal for 2014 degression rate to the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water (KETTHA) for approval
- SEDA confirmed income from solar panel installation at homes are subject to income tax. Treasury has rejected SEDA's proposal that domestic installations should be exempted from income tax.
- many questions on delayed payment from TNB. assured by TNB Dr Ahmad Jaafar that TNB will pay within 30 days of verified invoice as contained in the REPPA.

What does the above mean to you as a home owner interested to install a solar system? My advice to you is to prepare yourself now to apply for an application to SEDA for 2014 quota.
