The Government has introduced the Net Energy Metering Scheme in November 2016 with quota allocation of 500 MW up to year 2020 to encourage Malaysia’s Renewable Energy (RE) uptake. The concept of NEM is that the energy produced from the solar PV installation will be consumed first, and any excess will be exported to TNB at prevailing displaced cost. Energy produced from the installed solar PV system will be consumed first, and any excess will be exported to TNB on a “one-to-one” offset basis.
The NEM 3.0 will be divided into the following three (3) new initiatives/categories :
Net Energy Metering 3.0 programme (NEM 3.0) to provide more opportunities to electricity consumers to install solar PV systems on the roofs of their premises to save on their electricity bill. The NEM 3.0 will be in effect from 2021 to 2023 and the total quota allocation is up to 500 MW. NEM is applicable for below categories :
This scheme is only applicable in Peninsular Malaysia and applicants must be registered as TNB customers.

Self-consumption or known as SELCO applies when electricity is being generated for own usage and any excess is not allowed to be exported to the grid. The Government is encouraging individual, commercial and industrial consumers to install solar PV for their own consumption, looking to hedge against the rising cost of electricity.

Have access to electricity (unless the grid goes down), whether or not your solar system is producing or if you have batteries.
With an off-grid solar system, you’re completely reliant on the sun and energy stored in batteries to power your home or business.
A hybrid solar energy system is one that is tied to the grid but also has a battery bank to store unused electricity.
LSS is a scheme that lets you generate your own electricity via solar PV farm with installed capacity ranging from 1MW to <30MW (for distribution connected solar PV plants), and sell to the grid. This scheme is administered by the Energy Commission and the selection for potential developers will be to through competitive bidding.
The LSS scheme is managed and administered by the Energy Commission Malaysia. For more information, please click on www.st.gov.my.
