Mr. Jumpote Himacharoen, Director of Corporate Communications, Metropolitan Electricity Authority (MEA) stated that as a state enterprise under the Ministry of Interior, MEA has always been ready to drive forward government policies regarding renewable energy under the household solar scheme 2022 to purchase electricity at 2.20 Baht per unit under a 10-year contract in accordance with the policy of the Energy Policy and Planning Office (EPPO).
The applications are reserved for residential electricity users who have installed solar rooftops in MEA’s distribution areas: Bangkok, Nonthaburi and Samut Prakan. Those who are interested may inquire for more information and apply at https://myenergy.mea.or.th. The project has been initiated to promote the use of solar rooftops among electricity users. However, to connect with the electrical system, electricity users shall submit for approval in order to connect with the electrical system and to install the equipment corresponding to MEA’s standards and shall be verified by MEA’s specialist officers for user safety and hazard prevention for MEA’s operation officers as well as electrical hazard prevention to ensure stability and quality of the power distribution system.
