Homeowners can soon sell solar power to TNB

Malaysia will be implementing its 500MW of capacity for net energy metering (NEM) beginning 2016 until 2020, with 100MW capacity limit a year in Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah. NEM allows self-consumption of electricity generated by solar photovoltaic system users, while selling the excess energy to TNB. The suggested NEM quota is 20% for residential area, 40% for industrial sector 40% and the remaining for commercial buildings.   To control properly NEM in the future while protecting TNB’s interests, applications  would be required through an online system, and Industrial sector should declare upfront on how much they will generate on their own, while still consuming energy from TNB.

Local Malay daily Berita Harian has inked a partnership with JCDecaux Media (French Group largest outdoor advertising corporation in the world) to further promote the brand’s newly revamped lifestyle sections. The tie-up features a multi-pronged push encompassing on-screen and off-screen initiatives for the "Rona" and "Ratu" newspaper segments via TGV Cinemas. "Cinema admission has been growing on a yearly basis mainly among consumers between 15 and 29 years.  This target group fits the profile of Berita Harian’s campaign to attract this new group of readers," said Tham Yin May, sales & marketing manager, JCDecaux Media. A collaboration set to last 26 weeks, it involves on-screen advertising, hall branding at three branches namely TGV Sunway (Petaling Jaya), Bukit Tinggi (Klang), and Tebrau City (Johore Bahru) as well as on-ground product sampling. Each of the above theatre locations currently houses a re-branded hall bearing the Berita Harian name and point-of-sale collaterals such as poster boxes, aisle-seat branding, and life-size cut-out standees for added exposure. The new print columns are also distributed to movie-goers during the weekend, a move which has proven effective wherein readers have been spotted flipping through the material which in queue for their ticket purchase or entering the cinema halls. Also, before the film begins, viewers are exposed to a 30-second commercial highlighting various sections of the daily to pique interest and consumer engagement. The main objective of the push is to reach out to Malay youths in an effort to increase readership amongst the segment as the publication’s core target audience. Source :
