KOTA KINABALU: Sabah will be home to Malaysia’s first geothermal power plant, to be developed by the Tawau Green Energy Sdn Bhd (TGE) at a proposed site in Apas Kiri, Tawau, soon.

Set to export 30 Megawatt (MW) to the Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd (SESB) grid under the Feed-In-Tariff (FIT) scheme, the geothermal energy technology is considered as both very green with extremely low carbon footprints and has very high availability and reliability rate as clearly demonstrated in other operating plants worldwide.
