SDP recently completed a Request-for-Proposal exercise to equip our premises with roof-top solar panels in order to reduce electricity consumption from the Tenaga Nasional grid. To date, nine SDP buildings have been identified to participate in this exercise. Four of them are SDP Regional Offices in Peninsular Malaysia. For these Regional Offices, construction commenced at the end of April 2021 and is targeted for completion in July 2021.
In addition to the large-scale solar, SDP is also identifying different business models for solar, mainly for self-consumption through Captive Power and Net Energy Metering (NEM); and a corporate Peer to Peer (P2P) model for consideration as the government further liberalises the market. SDPRE is still looking forward for more opportunities in solar business in order to diversify its revenue income, to collaborate and jointly develop large scale solar photovoltaic power plants and solar rooftop projects.
