Kota Kinabalu: Sabah’s electricity generation capacity will be further stabilised with the operation of two more Large-Scale Solar (LSS) plants in Labuan.

Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd (SESB) CEO Mohd Yaakob Jaafar said the two plants were nearly completed with each having a capacity of 10MWac.

He said one of the LLS was being developed by Solar PV Power Sdn Bhd, a joint venture between Jetama Energy Sdn Bhd and Symbior Solar, which is expected to be operational in December 2023.

“Another LSS plant with a capacity of 5MWac, developed by Sabah Energy Corporation (SEC), is scheduled to start operations in Feb 2024,” he added after visiting the LSS sites in Tanjung Kubong and LSS Kampung Bukit Kalam in Labuan.

Also present were Jetama CEO Ahmad Naim Uddang and SEC project manager Muhammad Faruq.

The operation of the two LSS plants will help stabilise power supplies in the Sabah power grid, especially during daytime peak demand load.

“The operation of these LSS plants is also in line with the development of green and renewable energy in the Sabah grid,” he said.

Jetama CEO Ahmad Naim Uddang and SEC project manager Muhammad Faruq were present at the site visits.
