Malaysia Solar Panel Output
The amount of energy a solar panel produces depends on several factors, including the efficiency of the panel, the angle and orientation of the panel, average sunlight hours, and the local climate.
Malaysia, being near the equator, generally has good solar insolation. On average, most regions in Malaysia receive about 4 to 5 hours of full sun (or "peak sun hours") per day. But for simplicity, let's use 4.5 hours as the average.
Daily Production: If we assume an average efficiency of a solar panel to be about 18%, then a 1 square foot solar panel would have a capacity of roughly 18 W (since there are about 1000 W/m^2 of solar energy available). Therefore, the energy production for this panel in one day would be: 18 W×4.5 hours=81 Wh/day or 0.081 kWh/day.
Yearly Production: 0.081 kWh/day×365 days/year=29.565 kWh/year
So, a 1 square foot solar panel in Malaysia can produce about 29.565 kWh in a year, given the assumptions above. However, this is a rough estimate, and actual production could be higher or lower based on the specifics of the installation, efficiency of the panel, and local weather conditions.
Given the previous estimate, a 1 square foot solar panel in Malaysia can produce about 29.565 kWh in a year.
For a 140,000 square foot area:
29.565 kWh/year×140,000 square feet
= 4,139,100 kWh/year or 4.1391 GWh/year.
So, a solar panel system covering 140,000 square feet in Malaysia can produce about 4.1391 GWh in a year, given our assumptions. Remember that real-world results might vary depending on factors like the actual efficiency of the panels, the tilt and orientation of the installation, local weather conditions, potential shading, and other factors.
To determine how much the energy is worth in Malaysian Ringgit (MYR), we need to know the cost of electricity per kWh in Malaysia. Rates can vary based on whether the power is for residential, commercial, or industrial use, and the rates can change over time.
As of my last update in September 2021, the average electricity tariff for residential consumers in Peninsular Malaysia was around MYR 0.218 per kWh. However, rates might have changed since then, and it would be best to check the latest tariffs from the official sources or local utility companies.
Using the 2021 rate as a reference:
4,139,100 kWh/year×MYR0.218 per kWh = MYR 902,121.8/year
So, at the 2021 rate, the energy would be worth approximately MYR 902,121.8 per year. But to get a precise and updated value, you should refer to the current electricity rates in Malaysia.
