PETALING JAYA: Owners of landed homes can start applying for the 2000 Solar Home Rooftop Programme by the Sustainable Energy Development Authority (Seda) from Sept 24.
Seda chairman Tan Sri Dr Fong Chan Onn said the authority would allocate 2,000kW of solar photovoltaic (PV) for the fourth quarter of 2012 and 6,000kW for 2013 to home owners interested in generating electricity from their rooftops.
“A directory of the solar PV service providers will be available at Seda from Sept 18 to assist home owners,” he said in a statement yesterday.
Dr Fong said the programme was open to only individual residents and each application must comply with the Renewable Energy (Feed-in Approval and Feed-in Tariff Rate) Rules 2011 and Administrative Guidelines under the Renewable Energy Act.
An applicant can only submit one application per day through the e-FiT Online System at efit.seda.gov.my.
Seda chief executive officer Badriyah Abdul Malek, however, said the e-FiT Online System was not available for public access until Sept 18 as it was undergoing enhancements.
Badriyah also said applications for feed-in approval that were sent earlier have been flushed out due to the system upgrade. She also encouraged interested applicants and prospective and renewable energy developers to attend Seda's roadshows which will be held soon to learn more about the programme.
