Deregulation approval expected next month

A solar panel installed on a commercial building in Nakhon Ratchasima province. New rules will open the door for detached houses, warehouses, factories and offices to sell their leftover solar power.

The government will end the decade-long restriction on households and commercial buildings selling power generated by their solar rooftops to state utilities in the fourth quarter of the year.

Deregulation will open the door for detached houses, warehouses, factories and offices to sell their leftover capacity to the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (Egat).

The buying rate is being fixed at below 2.6 baht per kilowatt-hour, according to the Energy Ministry.
