TNB To Start Using Solar Power
Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) has completed ITS 50MWac solar power project in Sepang, Selangor, the largest solar project in the country.
In a statement, TNB said the large scale solar project (LSS) uses 230,000 solar panels installed on 98 hectares of land in Mukim Tanjung 12, Sepang.
The project, won in a competitive bidding by TNB’s subsidiary, TNB Sepang Solar Sdn Bhd, would increase TNB’s renewable energy (RE) capacity to the national grid to 73.2MW.
The project reached its commercial operation due date with an initial generation of 2.4MW in October.
The Government has set a target of 20% of the country’s electricity to be generated from renewable sources by 2030, an increase from 2% currently.
