NEM Rakyat

Under the NEM Rakyat Programme, Domestic Consumer(s) who has a solar PV installation on the roof-top of their premises will consume the energy produced first, and any excess will be exported to the TNB grid. The credit to be received for such excess energy will be used to offset part of the electricity bill on a “one-on-one” offset basis for a period of ten (10) years of operation.

The energy generated by NEM consumers will be consumed first which implies that less energy will be imported from the Distribution Licensee (DL). In many countries, the NEM scheme is effective to hedge against fluctuation or increase in electricity tariff in the future. This is especially relevant for consumers that fall under the high electricity tariff block.Benefits of NEM Rakyat

Under this program, any excess energy generated will be exported to the utility grid and will be paid on a “one-on-one” offset basis. The priority is for self-consumption, however most of domestic consumers may not be at home during the weekdays and may have excess energy exported to the grid. The credit shall be allowed to roll over for a maximum of 12 months.
