Nine Putrajaya Corp buildings to be fitted with solar panels


NINE Putrajaya Corporation (PPj) buildings are to have 363kWp (kilowatt peak power output) solar panels installed by early next year.

It is part of a memorandum of understanding and supply agreement for renewable energy signed by PPj and Tenaga Nasional Berhad to collaborate on helping Putrajaya become a Smart City and Low Carbon City by 2030.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Federal Territories) Dr Zaliha Mustafa said the collaboration was estimated to save about RM2.5mil over the next 20 years.

She said the initiative was in line with the Putrajaya Smart City Action Plan (2018-2025).

“It also includes development, maintenance, research and training related to renewable energy including the development of solar roofs, electric vehicles (EV) and infrastructure, and energy-related public infrastructure; as well as making Putrajaya a living laboratory location for related technology.

“This also includes the installation of LED streetlights, EV charging stations and more," she said after the signing on Tuesday (June 4).

She also said TNB, through its subsidiary company GSPARX, was offering promotional rates for the first 200 residences that install solar panels until July 31.

Also present at the signing were PPj president Datuk Fadlun Mak Ujud and TNB president and chief executive officer Datuk Megat Jalaluddin Megat Hassan.
