How Much Does A Residential Solar System Cost In Malaysia?

Updated: Dec 10, 2023

The cost of solar panel installation for residential homes in Malaysia varies based on the system size, which takes into account the current electrical consumption, electricity supply, and available roof space. Generally, a typical home solar system may range from RM15,000 to RM45,000.

A higher electricity bill would typically require a larger solar system; however, the size of the system is often limited by the available roof space and the electricity AC supply (number of phases).

Here's the maximum allowable system size for the Net Energy Metering (NEM) program:

  • Single-phase homes can install up to 6.8 kWp

  • 3-phase homes can install up to 16.5 kWp

Consumers are recommended to obtain quotes from a few solar PV service providers. It is important to exercise caution against overly enticing prices, as some providers may compromise on the quality of components, such as using lower-grade or refurbished solar panels, lower-grade solar inverters, and subpar electrical cables. Each solar component plays a vital role in ensuring a safe, reliable, and optimized solar system. These compromises can significantly impact the return on investment and the overall system cost over its lifespan. Thus, consumers are advised to choose a reputable solar contractor that doesn't compromise on quality and offers a reasonable price.
