5 Step to install a Solar Panel System

  1. Determine your energy needs.
  2. Buy solar equipment: solar panels, inverters, racking, etc.
  3. Install the racking or mounts for the solar panels.
  4. Connect the solar panels to the racking equipment.
  5. Install a solar inverter.

As you can see, there are a lot of details that a professional installer can help you with. Keep in mind that your solar energy system should continue to generate electricity for the next 25 to 35 years.

If you buy a home solar kit from a store, it may be less expensive per watt, and you might not be getting the same quality equipment that solar installers are able to offer you. Additionally, solar installers buy from equipment distributors who don’t sell to the general public, so they are able to offer lower prices as they buy in bulk.

Most home solar kits are designed for off grid use. However, going off grid might not in your best interest as you should be able to access utility generated electricity at all times of the day, every day.

Installing a solar panel system is complicated, and it requires training and experience.

If you buy a home solar kit, you may be able to pay less, but don’t forget that the solar industry in Malaysia offers additional value for relatively very little additional cost.

The fact is, when you hire someone who knows what they are doing, you actually save both time and money in the long run. Professional solar installers in Malaysia have a lot of experience, something you cannot find online or in the DIY guide. They are qualified to install solar power systems so you can be sure you are working with someone who really understands the process.

Another benefit of working with a professional solar installer in Malaysia is that they will help you complete and file the permits and applications that you need to get your solar power energy system up and running. Remember your utility company won’t let you connect your solar system to the grid without a signature from a certified electrician.

Besides, your solar installer will help you with all your questions, and even assist you in finding an incentive in your area that you may have missed, so that you can save more money.

Finally, remember that almost all solar power systems offer a warranty that may only be honored if a qualified installer installs the equipment. With that being said, does it mean there is no way to save money on solar panel installation?

You can, actually. The best tips are get multiple quotations, research and consider all solar companies in your area, consider all available options, and compare costs before making a decision. In other words, the more well informed you are, the better you get to save on your solar panel installation.

Largest Solar Power Plants in the World

Solar Power is the fastest growing energy source in the world. Today, almost every country is producing solar energy. The majority of the global solar power is coming from China, India and the US, with the Middle East coming strong.

In the past five years, solar panels systems have nearly quadrupled, going up to nearly 400GW by the end of last year. Solar energy contributed 20% of global power growth in 2018.

In Malaysia, by the year 2025, 20 percent of its energy will be from renewable sources. The renewable sources include biomass (99MW), biogas (59MW) and hydro (42MW) with solar energy being the biggest contributor — 75 percent (375MW) of the total.

The solar industry in Malaysia is expanding and is becoming an attractive investment for renewable developers. An example of this is the construction of the largest solar power farm in Sepang, Selangor, which uses 230,000 solar panels, installed in 98 hectares of land.

But where are the biggest solar power plants?

With more solar projects planned across the world, the “largest solar plant” changes continuously. Here are the largest solar plants in the world today.

The solar energy in Malaysia plays an important role in the energy mix, mainly because the sun shines all year around. In fact, this energy is much more affordable than 10 years ago.

As the solar industry in Malaysia is well established, there is a reliable and low cost supply chain for solar project developers. Steady growth is expected; projected figure is fixed at 8.5% for annual average growth rate between 2019 and 2027.

Which is more efficient

Solar power vs. Wind power: Which is more efficient?

More and more homeowners are turning to renewable energy sources in Malaysia to provide power to their homes. The two most common ones are: solar and wind power. But which one is better?

Solar power systems use sunlight to power your home, and still allow you to sell extra energy to your utility company. Wind power produce energy from wind powered turbines.

Both depend on forces of nature, but in general, solar panels provide more consistent energy, especially in Malaysia because of the low wind speed (no more than 2 m/s).

However, there are also other differences between both of them, which play an important role when it comes to deciding which renewable energy option is best for you.

Wind versus Solar

Let’s begin by saying that the main benefit of wind over solar power for your home is that wind turbines generate power 24 hours a day, and they don’t depend on sunlight. On the other hand, solar panels only generate power during sunlight hours.

However, in order to be effective, wind turbines need to be located high above where there are no obstacles that can block the wind.

A wind turbine for residential use should be at least 80 feet tall and the average wind speeds needed is at least 12 miles per hour. This could present a problem.

Thus this type of power is great for rural area with lots of open space where there is minimum obstruction that can block the wind’s path. Wind power systems do very well in plain areas.

In contrast, solar panels can be installed on almost any roof, and on the ground. Another benefit of solar panel systems is that your solar PV system is stationary and requires limited maintenance. Solar is generally a more practical renewable option for residential energy production.

Although the sun is everywhere in Malaysia, there are some places that are more exposed than others. Thus keep in mind that geography can affect the efficiency of solar panel conversions.

In addition, pay attention to the direction in which the solar panels are installed because this can also increase or decrease efficiency. The worst enemy of solar systems is cloud cover.

Main Advantages of Solar Power

For most settings, solar power is usually the best choice. The main advantages of solar power systems are:

  • No moving parts
  • More reliable
  • Solar power systems comes with a 25-year warranty
  • Less monitoring
  • Maintenance is less expensive
  • No noise: it is totally silent in operation
  • Installation is quicker
  • Lightning and high wind damage is less frequent
  • Solar panels require less space and you can install them on almost any roof.
  • Wind turbines require more planning and building approval and their height is in most cases an issue in residential areas.
  • Wind is an intermittent resource
  • Wind power can really have a terrible toll on birds.

Main Advantages of Wind Power

The main advantage of wind power over solar is that the wind can blow at night. Another advantage in the past was that wind power was cheaper but now the cost of solar energy in Malaysia has fallen, and prices have become more competitive than wind energy.

Although both methods offer clean renewable energy, they are not on equal ground.

No matter what renewable energy option you are considering, always compare multiple offers before making final decision. Contact your renewable energy experts HERE to evaluate your situation and provide you with advice.

Remember the energy option you choose should depend on your geographical location and requirements. One thing is certain: it’s critical to select the right system based on your needs.

In conclusion, as Solar power system is becoming more advanced every day, it’s now a better choice over wind power.

Many users save thousands on electricity bills every year, not to mention the appreciation of property value as the majority of buyers are willing to pay more for a house installed with a solar power system.

The Latest News About Solar Tender, Incentives

The renewable energy sector is gaining ground around the world due to the vast potential to environment conservation and the economy. Renewable energy is about creating energy using natural sources, such as the sun, water, wind and geothermal sources.

However, in years to come more renewable energy sources will become available, not to mention the improvement on the efficiency of the existing sources.

Why is renewable energy so important in meeting a country’s energy needs?

From the economic point of view, it enables the business to reap the benefits of energy cost saving. Moreover, the use of renewable energy helps the country to have a higher income economy because it is seen as a growth sector.

In Malaysia, the government is committed to taking all necessary measures to protect the environment, both as a responsibility and a gift to the future generation. This is the main reason why in January 2019, the Malaysian government is coming with an open solar tender for an estimated RM 2 billion worth of solar projects.

These solar projects will be announced under the third cycle of the large-scale solar (LSS3) scheme, which is aimed at increasing Malaysia’s electricity generation from renewable energy. The projects are expected to be of 500 MW capacity.

Tendering renewable solar power generation capacity can promote effective development of renewable energy. Why? Because it provides a scheme that bottoms out public support by providing a non-discriminatory and transparent allocation. Tenders are used worldwide to build solar power capacity.

In Malaysia, renewable energy is only 2% of the country’s total energy generation. But Yeo Bee Yin, Malaysian environment Minister, wants to increase the renewable energy to 20% by 2025.

To achieve 20 percent of renewable energy by 2025, the nation must produce an additional 3,991 MW or four gigawatts of renewable energy, which means more LSS needs to be added to the system.

Up until now, the Malaysian government has two LSS project cycles with an installed capacity of 958 MW. By the end of 2018 till 2020, other projects are expected to start generating energy.

Despite the fact that many developers have enjoyed the 500MW auctions on a regular basis, many others were hoping for the capacity level in LSS 3 to be far more benevolent.

There are many benefits of increasing the RE in electricity generation like reducing carbon emission by 49 percent. In addition, it will also save the system RM270 million for the period from 2018 to 2037.

As Malaysian population grows, the energy demand is also growing at the same time, and that’s why the nation has chosen to turn to solar energy to meet the demand and to cut down on harmful emissions. In the decade ahead, solar energy innovations are likely to concern public and business policy makers.

In Malaysia, the main energy sources have always been oil and gas. Nevertheless, the gas reserve is estimated to only last for another 33 years and the oil reserves 19 years, so renewable energy will be a cornerstone of energy generation.

That’s why since 2001, the Malaysian government has started to promote RE in the Third Outline Perspective Plan (OPP3), to help reduce the high dependency on fossil fuels.

But this not all. As part of major effort to protect Malaysia’s environment, the federal government will assign RM60 million to help fund specific projects to protect and expand existing natural reserves.

In fact, Malaysia has an abundance of energy resources, both depletable and renewable sources, although it had always been an over-dependence on conventional sources of energy. That’s why this type of incentives are so good for the country well being.

The use and production of renewable energy will bring only positive changes to Malaysia: it will secure the energy supply, reduce CO2 emissions, slow down the negative global temperature and create many more business and job opportunities.

Can You Install a Solar Energy System If You Live in an Apartment?

Although many Malaysians live in an apartment, but this should not be a problem to access solar energy.

If you live in an apartment building, you may think that having a solar energy system is not an option, because you don´t own the property, or you don’t have access to the roof.

Your main concern could also be that it is not worth your investment because you don’t own the property.

Some landlords might not want to install a solar power system, mainly because the initial cost is high, and they don’t receive the benefits if they rent out the property.

But this is not true at all. In fact, landlords can truly benefit from installing solar systems in their apartment buildings.

An important question you should ask is whether or not your apartment building is suited for solar power.

Consider this:

  • Solar power systems are better in apartments with four stories or less. If the building has more than four stories, you may also install a solar panel system, as long as the installers have a good and secure place to work and there is a way to get the system to the top.
  • Solar power energy can be distributed from a single Photovolataic System among multiple meters.

Now it is possible to install the same PV systems for everyone in the building, thanks to the virtual net metering, which is a lot less expensive.

Benefits

There are several benefits for the landlord to install a solar panel system in the apartment, such as:

  • Allow people to generate their own electricity
  • Export excess electricity to the grid
  • Reduce electric bill

No matter where you install the solar power system, it should always be secure firmly to resist strong winds.

This is especially true in high apartment buildings.

Your solar consultant should verify this, and if you have any doubts it is a good idea to contact a structural engineer.

External walls and roofs are also strong enough and you should not have any problem installing a solar power system.

Note that installation in a high building apartment will be more expensive, and it’s even so if your building has steep roof.

Before installing a solar power system in the building, consider the following:

 

Waterproof

Many building walls and roofs have a waterproof membrane.

It is better if you don’t penetrate the membrane when converting to a solar apartment.

Search for solar panels systems that are designed for flat roofs.

Sometimes there is no way to avoid penetrating the membrane but this should kept to a minimum.

So consult your solar installer if there are any leaks.

 

Fire

Walls between apartments are usually fire proofing.

So it is a good idea to ask your solar panel installer if the solar system would compromise it in any way.

This is something you should also discuss with the fire service company of the building.

 

Permits

Your solar company in Malaysia should make sure if you need any permits to install a solar panel system in the building.

Finally, make sure that the solar company in Malaysia you are choosing has experience installing solar panels on apartment buildings.

Check for reviews, talk to past customers and look for the warranty on solar panels.

Solar energy is not only good for the environment, it’s also amazing in lowering operating costs and increasing return on investment for apartment owners.

The Solar Industry in Malaysia is expanding and solar panels are getting cheaper and cheaper every day. So go green and help save the environment as it has never been easier.

solar farm

Solar Farms in Malaysia

A solar farm is designed to produce enough electricity for thousands of homes and business. They are just like the solar panels you install on your roof to generate power for your individual needs.

Solar farms in Malaysia usually sell electricity to the grid. However, in order to sell power to the grid first you need approval from SEDA.

Malaysia in recent years has become one of the largest solar PV manufacturers in the world.

It has one of the most resource-efficient solar farms in the world. One of the biggest is in Ayer Keroh with 29,092 solar panels, generating enough energy to power 1,800 houses every day.

The entire solar power industry in Malaysia is currently producing 67% of the 270MW of renewable energy.

The majority of solar farms in Malaysia are owned by independent power producers that benefit from:

  • Excellent Feed in Tariff Scheme: FiT was launched in 2011 to enable companies and house owners to produce clean energy from four sources and sell it to the grid:
    • Solar Photovoltaic
    • Biogas: organic waste, and landfill
    • Biomass: agricultural waste and garbage
    • Small Hydropower
  • Tax breaks
  • Fair regulation
  • Banking loans
  • Competitive labor costs
  • Excellent infrastructure, and
  • Amazing geographical location.

To develop a solar farm you need approximately 2.5 acres of solar panels in an area with high sun exposure to produce a megawatt of electricity. If your solar farm is located in an area with moderate sun exposure you need five acres of panels to produce a megawatt.

A megawatt in one million watts, this is enough to give electricity to 650 residential homes for one day.

How does a Solar Farm work?

To convert the sun’s energy into electricity, you need a PV system with the following components:

  • Solar panels that are installed in your land to convert sun´s power into DC power.
  • Electrical panels is where AC power travel to the electrical cabinet.
  • Utility Meter to measure your electricity supply.
  • Utility Grid, this will ensure that you stay connected to the utility grid.
  • Energy monitoring to monitor your electricity usage.

The cost of a solar farm depends on several factors, including size, installation complexity, the location and orientation of the solar farm, how much sunlight the farms get, the efficiency of the solar panels, and the efficiency of the inverters.

You may always contact us for more details.

 

Benefits of Solar Farms

No Pollution

Using solar energy is the best way to reduce carbon emissions, helping global warming as Solar farms distribute clean energy.

In addition, they use very little water compared to traditional power plants.

Great Return of Investment

You will save in your utility bill, maintenance costs and you will receive an income. Plus the solar feed in tariffs are applicable, making solar farming easier than before.

Habitat for Wildlife and Plants

Solar farms are great at providing a better habitat for wildlife and plants. This is because the land around solar panels is generally grassland.

No noise

Solar farms have no moving parts, so they do not produce any sound, and they can be developed close to any local environment.

 

Disadvantages of Solar Farms

High cost

The initial cost is high. Purchasing the solar system is very expensive, even though the prices of solar panels are lower than few years ago.

Weather

Solar farms efficiency depends on the weather. Yes, solar energy can still be produced during cloudy and rainy days, but the efficiency of the solar system drops.

The Need of Big Space

The more electricity you want, the more solar panels you need, and this means more space.

Solar energy is a renewable source of energy and could likely be the future of global energy source. In fact, many scientists predicted that solar energy will be used more and more, and will contribute to a quarter of the world’s energy in the future.

How Much Electricity Does a Solar Panel Produce

How Much Electricity Does a Solar Panel Produce?

The amount of electricity a solar panel produces depends on three things:

  • Size of the panel
  • The efficiency of the solar cells inside
  • Amount of Sunlight the panel gets

What is a Solar Panel?

A solar panel is a photovoltaic panel designed to absorb the sun ray to produce electricity or heating. The typical solar panel is about five and a half feet tall and 3 feet wide.

Each solar panel has approximately sixty little squares. These squares are individual solar cells, which are linked together by wires.

Inside each individual solar cell is where the electricity is made; electricity is then carried by the wires to a junction box where the panel is hooked into a larger array. The amount of power a solar panel makes is based on the wattage of the solar panel.

The residential solar panels available in 2018 contain 60 solar cells joined together to produce around 260-300 watts, or they could have 72 cells joined together to produce between 360-400 watts.

The higher the wattage of a solar panel the more electricity it produces because it has access to more solar irradiation.

The amount of electricity solar panels produce also depends on average sunlight over the course of a year. To know this you need to find your place on the globe to see if your area is more cloudy, and therefore less available energy from the sun to convert into electricity.

Malaysia, for example, is a great place to produce solar energy. That is why the solar industry in Malaysia is expanding with several solar power companies and solar farms.

In Malaysia by February 29, 2018 the solar power capacity was at 140MW out of a total of 311.6MW, and the number of applications for solar as a source of power was 348 out of 377 applications under the Fit according to SEDA. This could give you an idea of how big the industry is in Malaysia.

How many solar panels are needed to power an average house?

The average house uses about 900 kWh per month. This is a lot and you can really save a big amount of money by using solar power.

So how do you calculate how many solar panels you need? Let’s take 900 kWh and divide by the amount of kWH one solar panel produces, that is around 30 kWh monthly. You will need 30 panels to produce 250 watts per panel to produce 7,500 kW.

Of course, before you install your solar panels, it’s recommended to consult a solar company. The expert will tell you how your solar power system should be depending on how much devices you use and your lifestyle, for example:

  • Light Bulb uses 60 watts
  • Laptops use 45 watts
  • Desktops between 150-300 watts
  • Window air conditioning range between 500 and 1500 watts
  • Central air conditioning can use 3500 watts.

All those devices add up with variations. Most of your electricity usage probably happens at night, but if you work at home this could change. Your solar installer will talk to you about all of the options.

How to Store Energy

Solar panels only generate power as the sun shines. This mean you will need a way to store the energy. One solution is to use a battery, but the majority of people prefer to stay connected to the grid. This option is easier and cheaper.

If your solar panels are producing more power than you are using, the excess power will go back into the grid. You can pull energy from the grid at night, or anytime you need extra power.

If you use a grid-connected system, you don’t have to worry if you need more power than your solar system provides. Make sure you talk to your solar installer about all the options, and which one is best for you and your home.

renewable energy

The Changing Tide of Solar Energy

Renewable energy became the buzzword of the 21st Century as more and more nations saw the urgency to combat pollution and global warming. Of all renewables, solar energy becomes one of the growing trends as tech company giants like Apple and Google, automobile companies like Tesla, Nissan and Bentley all heavily invested in solar energy.

With China being the largest installer of solar photovoltaics (PV), solar energy is seen to be better energy source as is both practical and more cost-effective than fossil fuels for both the commercial and residential. In Malaysia alone, more and more organizations are jumping on to the solar bandwagon, as the nation strives to become world’s second largest PV producer by 2020.

As electricity cost in the country continues to rise, many are turning to solar energy as an alternative and cost-effective energy. There are more uses for solar energy than one realized. For example, it can serve as a handy portable charger, allowing you to charge your devices anywhere as long as there is sunlight. With solar as an alternative energy, it will help the country save a lot of money that initially went to conventional energy consumption.

Below shows why everyone should consider turning to solar energy system as the alternative energy source.

Benefits of installing in Solar PV system

  1. It is inexhaustible. The sun is a free and inexhaustible source of energy. The sunlight cannot be monopolized by anyone nor does it run out of sun rays no matter how much solar PV takes in from it. Unlike fossil fuels where it is non-renewable and release greenhouse gas, solar PV convert sunlight into electricity with needing to burn anything. Therefore, it also makes solar energy a clean energy.
  2. It is economical. Solar energy helps reduce electricity bills. As was mentioned, the sun is free, there is no cost for excavation or transportation that often incurred when relying on fossil fuels. In Malaysia, companies could to sell their surplus energy to government-linked electricity company, TNB.
  3. It is sustainable. The lifespan for solar PV panels can last beyond 25 years and has low maintenance and operating cost because the system was built to sustain through years and decades.
  4. It paves the way for more technology advancement. Solar energy does not merely solve the climate change issue but it also opens a new avenue for the world to rethink power and electricity. Within Malaysia, the growing industry of Solar is constantly seeing improvement in their systems.

Around the world, we can see a constantly competition in improvement the solar technology, from self-cleaning panels, to the battle for higher efficiency, to recently, where triboelectric nanogenerator (TENG) was added to solar technology, where it is now possible for a solar panel to generate electricity from raindrops (it is yet to be commercialized).

Simply put, the introduction of solar technology is also opening new and better inventions into a nation.

 

It is important to point out that solar powered electricity is not inferior to fossil fueled electricity, as solar power too can be used to generate a variety of appliances from households to industrials.

While it may seem to be a Herculean task to transformed a nation that is driven by fossil energy to solar powered one; and it may seem to be a massive financial commitment in the short term, but in the long term, the country as a whole will yield much more in return both financially, culturally and environmentally.

With solar energy trending and gaining popularity, we are seeing the skepticism of the public decreases as more are being educated on renewable energy and climate change. Rooftop panels, car park panels and solar forms are some of the Solar PV projects that are rapidly in Malaysia.

With TNB (Tenaga National Berhad) too has been heavily involved in some of the large-scale solar projects (LSS) in Malaysia, it is a clear indication that solar energy is here to stay and expand.
