SEDA Malaysia - AUO Sunpower

 Assalamualaikum and hye!

Lepas balik je dari COOLTEK house, kitorang pon gerak terus ke AUO Sunpower ikut trip SEDA Malaysia ni la. Few bloggers and media pon follow jugak. Banyak sangat kitorang belajar dari AUO Sunpower tentang SOLAR cell yang mereka hasilkan sendiri, di Malaysia dan export ke oversea, they have a lotttt of projects worldwide, cool kan. AUO Sunpower ini juga terletak di Melaka, takkan kedah pulak, dalam sehari dari Melaka ke Kedah pulak kann.

 


AUO Sunpower sangat lah komited untuk menghasilkan world class produk dan servis dengan harga yang berpatutan melalui inovasi, operasi yang bagus dan dengan usaha yang berpanjangan. Tau tak diorang buat ape? Nampak tak yang Stephanie dongak tu? Itu la PV Module yang mereka hasilkan. Cara dia hasilkan camni POLYSILICON-INGOT-SOLAR WAFER-SOLAR CELL-PV MODULE. Tau tak Solar PV yang I selalu gembar gemburkan tu, yang boleh dapat income tu, yang kita boleh install atas bumbung kita tu?

Haa ini lah dia.! 

 


Pandangan dekat solar cell hiuhiu

PV Module


Dibawah ialah antara project yang mereka jalankan dan banyakkk sangat award yang mereka dapat. Untuk pengetahuan AUO Sunpower punya cell ialah 22.5-24.2% lebih efficient compare to conventional cell. Sekarang sebab order terlalu banyakkkk sampai orang yang order pon kena tunggu. Punya la bagus kann.



 
Tempat kereta diorang, semuaaaa bumbung ada install solar cell and they use their own electricity power! Dah banyakkk dah jimat dekat situ kan. Ye la elektrik untuk industri bape banyak pulakk. So make use of everything that you have!

Ada satu slide yang menarik yang telah dibentangkan oleh AUO Sunpower ini iaitu 10 ways to save the world, next entry saya cerita ok?
 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Lepas je pergi AUO Sunpower kitorang pon gerak ke Kumpulan Melaka Berhad, di melaka juga la. For your info, Melaka Government merupakan yang pertama membina dan operate their own solar farm. Besar sangat okkk dan berangin gila. I olss da la ringan, nasib tak terbang je. They build 248.43 ha site dekat Melaka World Solar Valley dekat Rembia Industrial area.

Kitorang siap dibawa masuk ke tempat operation tengok how the machine operated.


 

Last but not least, yours truly

Assalamualaikum and hye!


Kita sambung balik dari entry sebelum ni ye...




DINING HALL
Concentrate light where it’s needed (dining table) and reduce background/ambient lighting. Use energy efficient lamps, it gives better output in every cent spent


Use suitable night curtains to reduce heat and get a good sleep

KITCHEN
Reheat or cook smaller portions of food

Buy energy efficient microwave or oven if possible


Purchase 5-star energy efficient refrigerators. Buy an appropriate size for your household and avoid placing warm foods in the refrigerator. A 550 watt refrigerator costs approximately RM2 in electricity to operate annually

UTILITY ROOM
Iron as many clothes as possible at a time. Constantly reheating an iron from room temperature to operating temperature uses more than keeping it at operating temperature

Try to wash in cold water whenever possible. Sort your clothes and wash full loads. Buy inverter-type washing machine if possible. About 90% of the energy used for washing clothes on a warm cycle is used for cooling he water

ENVIRONMENTAL LAWN
Plant green trees/flower pots/etc to reduce the urban heat island effect, improve our air quality and reduce the amount of storm water runoff

RAINWATER HARVESTING
Rainwater harvesting is a way of saving the rainwater and using it as piped water for the garden watering, yard wash down, vehicle and car washing


SOLAR ROOFTOP
Install solar rooftop if possible to promote renewable energy

It gives a passive income as well as contribute to clean environment


ROOF
Use roof insulations if possible. It helps reducing heat entering and escaping the house

Good roof insulation can reduce indoor temperature within 3C-5C

WALL
Use clay bricks or good thermal conductivity wall if possible. It absorbs heat better. 


Use external wall insulations too for good heat conductivity

WINDOW/GLAZING
Use double glazing or energy efficient windows if possible. It will reflect heat and ultra violet from entering the house. Install heat rejecting, ultra violet reflective and good light transmitting tinted film where necessary if possible

SKYLIGHT
Skylight is used to convey abundant daylight or top lighting, provide a connection to the outdoor environment to occupants, and often to help fresh outside air enter the space.




Nanti saya akan share tentang COOLTEK house kepunyaan Stephanie yang terletak di melak, banyakk tips2 yang beliau praktikkan dalam sustainable smart living house dekat rumah beliau. In fact, rumah beliau juga banyak masuk majalah dan paper sebab mengamalkan konsep renewable energy.

SEDA Malaysia- Sustainable Smart Living House

Assalamualaikum and Hye. 


Kesinambungan dengan nama SEDA (sustainable energy development authorityMalaysia), harini saya nak cerita sikit pasal sustainable smart living house. Apa itu sustainable? Dengan kata mudahnya, mengurangkan tenaga yang kita gunakan untuk meneruskan operasi sesuatu system tetapi boleh menghasilkan improvement yang banyak, lagi tinggi sifat sustainability tu.

Haritu saya ada pergi lawatan ke Melaka, visit COOLTEK house. A great house I must say, next entry saya share ok. The owner ada mengamalkan smart living house ni, next ok next. Entry ni kita nak share tentang apa yang boleh dilakukan to achieve sustainable smart living house.

BEDROOM
Purchase 5-Star energy efficient fans. Guna bila perlu dan dengan kelajuan yang sepatutnya


Use suitable night curtains to reduce heat and get a good sleep. During day, use suitable day curtain. When you buy the curtain, make sure u choose the right fabric or u may ask he promoter ;)

BATHROOM
Don’t take unnecessarily long showers to conserve energy and water. Do not use it if unnecessary. Ni tak guna air kemain, nak berus gigi bukak shower, amik sabun biar je shower, tengah shampoo pon shower. Macam mana sabun nak lekat hoi.


Unplug shavers, hairdryers and other beauty tools once you have finished using it.


If you use battery-powered toothbrush, use rechargeable energy efficient batteries.
Use water efficiently and re-use water whenever possible. Repair leaks as soon as they are discovered.

STUDY ROOM
Unplug router when not in use to save energy and protect it from electric surges during thunderstorms. Use task lighting to light up work desk

Turn off all plugs when not in use, and unplug whenever possible.

Buy energy efficient electronics if possible

PORCH
Use energy efficient lighting such as compact fluorescent light bulbs CFLs 

Use daylight sensor to ensure the light will be turned on during dark. CFLs use about 75% less energy than standard incandescent bulbs and last up to 10 times longer. Use auto sensor lights wherever possible.

Drive a car nicely suited to your needs. Nothing too big or small.

Avoid taking unnecessary trips. Buy hybrid/electric car if possible


LIVING ROOM
Make use of natural lights as much as possible

Use energy efficient light such as CFL, LED in the living room if possible

Buy 5star energy efficient televisions. Turn off all plugs when not in use, and unplug if possible

Alternatively purchase a surge protector which will allow you to shut off power to all entertainment electronics with one click.


Purchase sustainably-made furniture manufactured from locally-sourced materials with cooling properties.

Materials like bamboo and teak are sturdy, long lasting and cooling.

SEDA Malaysia- COOLTEK home

Assalamualaikum and hye!

Sihat semua? Seperti yang dijanjikan sebelum ini, so entry ni saya nak share pasal lawatan saya bulan lepas bersama group SEDA Malaysia ke Melaka. So tempat pertama yang kami kunjungi merupakan COOLTEK Home kepunyaan Stephanie Mary Bacon yang terletak di Tiara Golf and Country Club, Bukit Katil, Melaka. Masa mula-mula masuk semua rumah besar-besar, and I imagine Stephanie's house will be the same, but then bila sampai je hujung, which was her house, rumah beliau memanjang dan satu tingkat dan a plain white house. Memang kalau tengok dari luar da boleh identify rumah tu rumah berteknologi kkekeke. 

Stephanie dulu duduk dengan husband, and now she live alone after her husband passed away. They actually welcome visitors to the house, they brief about the house but after the husband passed away, Stephanie limit the guests ;) So our group is actually very lucky sebab diterima untuk melawat awww terharu -_-"

Aim COOLTEK home ini ialah to construct a simple, easily maintainable home to be five times more efficient than normal Malaysian houses. Tau tak yang rumah i running air conditioning all day ok! So for sure rumah ni takde tingkap (ada tapi tak boleh bukak pon), so for air, they have ventilation system la. Rumah ni kecil, simple, minimum decoration, rumah dia sekata je, takde la orang kata nak melangkah keatas sikit ke takde, sume sebaris, thus ensuring its energy efficient design. Pastu rumah ni pulak dia memang dibina ikut arah cahaya matahari, cool ok. In fact, Stephanie merupakan salah seorang installer Feed In Tarriff! ;)

dari bahagian hadapan

dari belakang. kenapa Steph bina senget? ada sebab dia. Sebab bila kita bina rumah kita, we have to consider where is the direct sun come from, takde laa bukak pintu panas, semua tempat panas. So we can avoid direct sun melalui tingkap.

Stephanie bagi briefing sikit sebelum tour

ini tingkap, tapi nampak macam akuarium pulak. Tingkap ni tak boleh bukak ye, semua tingkap dalam rumah tak boleh bukak, kecuali nak dapat cahaya je, dapat udara tak boleh. Sebab dia ada ventilation system sendiri, iaitu dari bawah tanah! That is why dalam rumah ni rasa sejuk, fresh je


Rupa bentuk tingkap tu. This is double glazed window to resist much heat from outside passing into the rooms.

Gambaran di dalam rumah Stephanie, floor tile pon go green, boleh dapat dekat mana-mana kedai tiles di Malaysia. It also lessens the amount of air conditioned coolness being lost

Apa yang saya notice, rumah ni ada satu sahaja bilik tidur, di hujung nun sana, sebelah kiri macam guest room, tapi takde katil, sebelah kanan office. very simple house, keliling rumah pon banyakk hijau hijau.

 
Ini sliding door from the bedroom, dia buat what we called this ha? Jeriji ehh? Kira  nyamuk takboleh masuk la. So takyah la guna insect repellent ke apa.

 
Banyak la story dah cover pasal rumah ni. In fact, most of electrical appliance yang digunakan merupakan energy efficient


ini memang bukan kolam renang, baru je siap,ni tempat simpan air hujan where kita boleh siram pokok, basuh kereta ke kalau nak menggunakan air yang ada. Kan dah jimat dekat situ?

Banyak kan tips sustanaible smart living house yang COOLTEK Home ni buat. Anda bila lagi? Dont forget to visit SEDA untuk mengetahui dengan lebih lanjut tentang renewable energy, Feed-in-Tarriff, Sustainable energy and many MORE!

SEDA MALAYSIA : 1.6% surcharge in electric bill

Assalamualaikum.

Seperti yang diketahui, untuk bayaran bil elektrik yang melebihi RM77 sebulan akan dikenakan 1% surcharge untuk Renewable Energy Fund as eplain in previous entry. Tetapi, yang terbaru, yang saya ketahui dari SEDA sendiri RE fund telah dinaikkan kepada 1.6% pada 1 Januari 2014 wuhuuu. Jangan terkejut, let me help to explain a lil bit about this.


So on 2nd December 2013, which is last year, Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water (KeTTHA) telah mengumumkan hal yang tersebut berkuat kuasa tahun ni. So boleh tengok bill sekarang, penggunaan melebihi 300kWh akan dikenakan surcharge tersebut. Untuk yang bawah 300kWh tak kena la surcharge ni.

Saya terang lagi tentang surcharge ini, surcharge ini adalah digunakan untuk dana tenaga boleh baharu (TBB), yang saya selalu cerita tu. Ayat mudah nya untuk tabung Feed-in-Tariff supaya lebih ramai lagi orang boleh daftar program ini, kesimpulannya duit tu akan dapat balik dekat kita dannnnn secara tak langsung kita menyumbang kepada Go Green culture.

Ini adalah contoh bill, please refer no 7. Tapi ni yang lama, so yang 1% surcharge tu la yang dinaikkan kepada 1.6%.

 
source: TNB
 
Menurut SEDA chairman, Datuk Yee Moh Chai,: "The implementation of the FIT mechanism since December 1st 2011 has been a resounding success. Under the previous Small Renewable Energy Power (SREP) program, only 61.2 MW of RE capacity was connected to the grid at the end of 2010.
  

"After 24 months of implementation by SEDA Malaysia, the FIT mechanism has a total approved RE capacity of 482 MW, which constitutes of 40.2% for solar PV, 27.7% for biomass, 27.2% for small hydro, and 4.9% for biogas. After 24 months of implementation, the country now has a cumulative total of 119 MW of renewable energy capacity connected to the grid, which represents an increase of 94% on the initial baseline."

Sejak December dilancarkan, dan sehingga oktober 2013, sebanyak 775 yang install PV solar dekat bumbung rumah telah berjaya mengaut keuntungann. Dengan kenaikan surcharge ini juga FiT program will be epanded to Sabah's residential consumers. Di Malaysia dibawah National Renewable Energy Policy and Action Plan 2010, Malaysia mensasarkan untuk mencapai 73% tenaga boleh baharu in the total power generating capacity by 2050. Salah satu cara untuk mencapai target tersebut adalah dengan melancarkan FiT polisi ni la, So sekarang, untuk mempercepatkan lagi sasaran tersebut, 1.6% surcharge dikenakan keatas bil elektrik untuk Renewable Energy Fund, dimana ia adalah jauh lebih rendah berbanding negara lain seperti China, German dan sebagainya.


Current Tariff means before 2014, start from 2014, the new tariff calculation applied. For the usage of above 300kWh, kena bayar surcharge of 1.6%. Feel free to ask if you have any query regarding this matter, ill try my best to explain.  As for me, as long as I know where the money goes to, and it can benefit me (at least i know i contribute for green culture), other people(who install solar PV) and country (more renewable energy used in the future), i'll pass. Hey save the planet, save the earth.

FiT- Feed in Tariff system in Malaysia by SEDA

Assalamualaikum

Hollaaa guys, happy new year! Walaupun dah lepas.  I know my blog has been loaded with so much fact about SEDA, FiT, renewable energy and bla blaaaa. Please please please read it, at least you know what happens and have an idea what is that kann. Dari baca dekat err educational blog yang berat, tapi i write it in simplest way. Aci kan?

Sebelum ni saya ada bagi contoh renewable energy is'nt it? Ada 4 which are Biomass, Biogas, Small Hydro and Solar PV which all these 4 are eligible for FiT registration. So 4 sources ni boleh digunakan untuk jual elektrik kepada TNB.

Seda Malaysia adalah agensi pelaksana yang bertanggungjawab untuk program ini. SEDA held to catalyse the generation of RENEWABLE ENERGY and reduce the usage of fuel and avoid the generation of carbon dioxide. Meaning that this FEED IN TARIFF program allows electricity to be produced from renewable energy and then we can sell it back to TNB, at fixed higher price dan masa yang telah ditetapkan oleh SEDA, as below. ;) Menarik tak? Dah la renewable energy, is a renewable, in can be renewed, so does'nt it sound like long term investment for company and individual ehemm?


We, the end user, the house owner, can sell electricity under FiT scheme. Masa mula-mula dengar ni dekat blogger event under SEDA Malaysia, semua orang terbukak mata,ye la mana la kita tau yang kita ni boleh jual elektrik, sebab TNB is such a big company, and for sure dia guna big money and big machine untuk generate electric, macam mana kita ni, rakyat2 marhaen nak jual pulak kan. Sebenarnya bolehh. The easiest way is just to install home solar PV on top of your roof, register under FiT program, follow the step, wallah ready to go, TNB will buy the electric from you AT HIGHER PRICE THAN YOU PAY YOUR ELECTRICITY BILL!

HOW TO APPLY FEED IN APPROVAL?

In order to be entitled to sell renewable energy at above rate,  a Feed-in Approval (FiA) will have to be applied to and granted by SEDA Malaysia. The application for the FiA can be done both manually or online via SEDA Malaysia’s official website. Pergi website SEDA (http://seda.gov.my). Go to download, Forms and FiT application form. Kalau nak buat manually u can go over SEDA Malaysia office as follow. Mana mana pon boleh.







WHAT IS THE FiT INCENTIVES?

For individual? Untuk kita rakyat jelata yang nak install, kita akan dapat feed in tariff rate yang telah ditetapkan oleh SEDA untuk jual elektrik kepada TNB, tau tak berapa? Lebih kurang 4 kali ganda diorang beli elektrik dari kita kena bayar diorang.hiuhiu.

For companies? Untuk organisasi, boleh pilih. Samada pioneer status with income tax exemption 100% of statutory income untuk 10TAHUN!, atau Investment Tax Allowance off 100% on qualifying capital expenditure incurred dalam masa 5 TAHUN dannnn import duty dan sales tax exemption for equipment used to generate energy from renewable sources. Refer term Companies as locally incorporated under the Companies act 1965 ( berhad and sendirian berhad)

for more details please refer here (http://seda.gov.my/pdf/PTM%20Incentives.pdf)



THE CALCULATION

Ok kalau susah sangat nak nampak meh i bagi nampak.(source)

Passive Income of RM430 - RM630 per month (RM7,200 per annum). 

Ini sebagai contoh sahaja
 
A 4 kWp Solar Retrofitted system (ini harga install the solar) =  RM44,000 (Cost of Capital Expenditure - Capex). 
The Solar PV system can generate 415 kWh (yield per month) x 1.0411 (FiT rate for 4 kW Retrofitted) = RM432 per month (payment received from TNB) 
Thus, with investment of RM44,000, investor will generate a total of RM108,800 over the period of 21 years. This is equivalent to a simple ROI (not taken into account of NPV) of more than 15%.  
Thus, the roof can provide a shelter and also a passive income to the owner, and off-set CO2 from fossil fuel (1kWh = 0.7kg CO2).

How is that? Interesting much? Nanti saya akan cerita step by step to register Feed in Tariff ni :) Stay tuned!
