Sun-Powered Homes in Malaysia

Putrajaya, Malaysia [The Star] A handful of Malaysians will soon get the opportunity to own houses that tap solar energy. As a start, four such houses will be built this year, followed by another 15 early next year. … Solar cells are integrated into the buildings (using building-integrated photovoltaic or BIPV technology), unlike older generation solar systems where cells are mounted on roofs. But best of all, the first four house buyers need not pay for the systems; these will be sponsored by the Malaysian Building-Integrated Photovoltaic (MBIPV) project under the “showcase incentive” scheme.
