The projects, worth $477m, are an addition to the projects that will produce 958MW by 2020.
Malaysia will tender $477m of solar projects with a capacity of 500MW through its Large Scale Solar (LSS) Programme 3 in January 2019.
Minister Yeo Bee Yin shared that the projects are part of the ongoing LSS projects that will produce 958MW of electricity between the end of this year until 2020.
The Star also reported that the projects came under the purview of Sustainable Energy Development Authority (SEDA) and were in line with the 20% renewable energy target for the nation by 2020.
Other renewable energy projects will be launched under the feed-in-tariff programme (FIT) next year to produce 114MW of electricity. About 74MW would come from small-scale hydro projects, 10MW from biomass, and 30MW from biogas.
