ENERGY Nasional Berhad (TNB) through its wholly owned subsidiary, GSPARX Sdn Bhd (GSPARX) is collaborating with the Federal Land Development Authority (Felda) to install a photovoltaic solar system capable of reducing 1,321 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year.
TNB’s Chief Retail Officer, Kamal Arifin A Rahman said, solar photovoltaic systems will be installed on 14 roofs of Felda’s premises in Peninsular Malaysia with a capacity of 1.6 MWp.
According to him, the initiative through the Renewable Energy Supply Agreement (SARE) can enhance the impact of environmentally friendly development and universal well-being in line with TNB’s commitment to Environment, Social and Governance (ESG).
“This agreement also includes other smart energy solutions such as the Green Electricity Tariff (GET) when the quota is available, then the aspect of energy efficiency and the energy monitoring system (EMS) in reducing carbon emissions,” he said in a statement on Monday.
In the meantime, Kamal said, the installation of photovoltaic solar panels included various buildings including Felda Tower, Felda Semarak Institute as well as regional offices in Kedah, Negeri Sembilan, Johor, Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan.
According to him, the installation works are scheduled to be completed in May 2023 and this initiative to switch to Renewable Energy sources (Renewable Energy) allows Felda to enjoy
estimated electricity bill savings of RM10.74 million for the 20-year period of the agreement.
“It is in line with the national aspiration towards a carbon neutral country by 2050 when the initiative is able to reduce 1,321 metric tons of carbon dioxide every year, equivalent to greenhouse gas capture by 24,232 trees within 10 years,” he said.
The agreement was signed by the Chief Customer Officer (Government and Large Business) of TNB’s Retail Division, Nasaruddin Mohd Zaini; Managing Director, GSPARX Sdn Bhd, Elmi Fairul Mashuri and Director General of Felda, Datuk Amiruddin Abdul Satar.
