Solar Energy Purchase (SEP) is an option for TNB customers to buy energy using solar panels owned by a third-party Investor/Asset Owner. SEP is a financial arrangement in which the Investor/Asset Owner owns, operates and maintains the solar photovoltaic (PV) system, whereas the customer acts as the ‘host site’ that purchases and consumes the solar PV system output power for a predetermined period and set energy price with TNB as a contracting and billing entity.
This arrangement allows the customer to purchase energy at a cheaper price than the normal rate taken from TNB, with an option to export the excess energy from solar PV system to the TNB grid to offset their energy bills. The export option is known as Net Energy Metering (NEM). NEM is a scheme introduced by the Energy Ministry to encourage Malaysia’s renewable energy uptake.

Supply Agreement - Renewable Energy (SARE) is a tripartite agreement between a third-party Investor/Owner, TNB (TNBX as its billing agent) and the customer. The agreement details out the contract years, the solar price (sen/kWh), the covenants and obligations of each party. It is endorsed by the Energy Commission (ST) of Malaysia and Sustainable Energy Development Authority (SEDA), and announced by the YB MESTECC Minister in 2018. The list of the third-party Investors/Asset Owners can be referred at https://www.seda.gov.my/directory/ 2020-registered-solar-pv-investor-rpvi-directory/
