Published on: Thursday, December 06, 2018

Kuala Lumpur: Tenaga Nasional Bhd's (TNB) Large Scale Solar (LSS) project in Mukim Tanjung 12, Sepang was fully operational on Nov 23.

The project is the largest solar farm in Malaysia, spanning on a 98-hectare site and uses 230,000 solar panels to generate 50 MW of renewable energy (RE) to the national power grid.

In a statement Wednesday, TNB said the solar farm had increased its renewable energy generation capacity to 73.2 MW, in line with the government's aim to empower more environmentally-friend power generation.


"TNB is committed to supporting this aim and targeting to generate 1,700 MW of RE by 2025," it said.

TNB said the LSS project achieved the initial operation date in October with the generation of 2.4 MW of power which was also seen as contributing to the government's effort towards the target to 20 per cent RE power generation by 2030. – Bernama
