It attracted over 1.6GW of submissions.

Enerdata reported that the Energy Commission of Malaysia has published the list of winning development companies under the framework of its second Large-Scale Solar (LSS) tender round, which offered 563 MWac of capacity.

In Peninsular Malaysia, six projects ranging between 1 and 5.99 MW were awarded, along with eleven 6-9.99 MW projects and thirteen 10-30 MW projects. In addition, eight projects up to 6 MW were awarded in Sabah and Labuan, along with three 6-10 MW projects. The selected facilities are due to start commercial operations in 2019-2020. They will deliver their output to the utility companies Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) or Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd (SESB).
