How to become a Feed-in Approval Holder

In order to be entitled to sell renewable energy at the Feed-in Tariff (FiT) rate, a Feed-in Approval (FiA) will have to be applied to and granted by SEDA Malaysia. The application for the FiA can be done both manually or online via SEDA Malaysia’s official website. Application forms will be made available on SEDA Malaysia’s website and hard copies will be made available at SEDA Malaysia’s office. There is no preferential treatment for FiA applications. Instead all FiA applications will be treated fairly and equally through a transparent application process. An online FiA application system will be made available.
