Opportunity to sell your alternative energy generated power back to the government, in Thailand

Opportunity to sell your alternative energy generated power back to the government, in Thailand

Would you sell your solar generated power back to the national power grid?

It has been working in Australia, lets see how the authorities plan to do this in Thailand as well…

Since 2008, Australia have had feed-in-tariffs regulated to encourage the use of solar power in the general public. Depending on their state, they can be paid between 16c and 60c per kWh they feed back into the grid, for a specified amount of time.

Thailand seems to be jumping on the bandwagon too.

‘The Department of Alternative Energy Development and Efficiency (DEDE) has proposed that households and factories be allowed to sell electricity from solar rooftops to the national power grid from September.’ Says the Bangkok Post.

Recognising the rush, the DEDE suggested September to be the month from which members of the general public and local Thailand businesses can start selling their excess alternative energy generated power.

This move from DEDE will hopefully increase the populations use of solar power, as a form of generating their own electricity
