Abstract

The rising environmental crises and energy demand have stimulated renewable resources and the advancement of renewable energy technology. Solar energy together with biomass, hydro, wind and as well other different renewable resources, is a naturally alternative energy source. Solar energy has immense potential as a significant source and becoming the most appealing and preferred option in Malaysia. The introduction to the net metering system, NEM GoMEn scheme by SEDA provides an opportunity for Kuantan Community College to venture into the renewable energy business. A previous study has been made using a design calculation method to propose a PV system. This continuity research will use a different approach to evaluate the feasibility of implementing a NEM GoMEn towards a rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) system at Kuantan Community College. To assess the new method's performance, the methodologies include an overview for 12 months of data in electricity demand and solar irradiation with PV system modelling and simulation. The PV system modelling includes four main blocks; the solar PV System, Block A Kuantan Community College, NEM Metering and NEM GoMEn Scheme. These models and approaches gave a better result than the previous study regarding electricity bill savings, payback period, CO2 avoidance and numbers of the tree planted. The PV systems of 66kWp solar system capacity could produce 88174kWh saving of energy and save RM44880.62 in annual electricity bills while avoiding 56343.25kg of CO2 through renewable energy. All the computations models and simulations are developed in MATLAB/Simulink environment.
