This diversification project will produce solar photovoltaic glass and will create 1,400 new job opportunities, with a commitment to have at least 90 per cent of these positions be filled by local Sabahans.
Living in a constituency that faces power disruption almost daily, government must act immediately to overcome the problems faced by the people of Sabah
the government is aware of the potential and benefits of solar energy in the state, and is responsible in ensuring the electricity supply in Sabah is guaranteed, thus ensuring optimum cost so as not to burden the people in the state.
since coal-based power plants are not an option to meet Sabah’s power needs, new energy sources or technology, including green power, must be explored and considered to be the top choices as a long-term solution.
The proceeds from the issuance will be utilised mainly to refinance the development costs of two 30MW solar plants in Kuala Muda, Kedah and Machang, Kelantan, it said.
