The Suruhanjaya Tenaga ( Energy Commission of Malaysia ) features shown a 500 MW large-scale solar tender in Peninsular Malaysia . When commissioned , the solar power projects would be connected to the electrical grid and sell electrical energy to Tenaga Nasional Berhad ( TNB ) under an energy investment decision terms .
This is the 3rd large scale solar power project tender under the country’s massive scale solar package . The projects will be between 1-100 MW ( AC ) capacity and are supposed to be commissioned by 2021. Details on the injection spots for the connectivity to the grid will be conveyed to the interested bidders after the requisition of Obtain forproposal ( RFP ) documents.
In the notice inviting bidders, the electricity commission states that the proposals with shallow connection will be encouraged to avoid unnecessary delays in the project implementation as well as reducing the cost of the interconnection. However, an alternative interconnection point may be offered by the bidder for consideration, subject to approval by the utility company.
The ventures ranging from 1-100 MW will likely be developed under the country’s third cycle of the large-scale solar energy program.
