Green Energy Sdn Bhd (TGE) is on track to develop Malaysia’s first geothermal power plant project in Tawau, Sabah, in 2019. 

TGE has received all requisite approvals to develop, construct, operate and maintain a geothermal power plant, exporting 30 MW to the Sabah Grid, under a 21-year renewable energy power purchase agreement (PPA) with Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd at a feed-in tariff of RM0.45 per kWh. 

The approvals included land lease agreements with the Sabah Forestry Department and Sabah Parks, within whose land the project area is located, TGE project development GM Andrew Amaladoss told The Malaysian Reserve. 

He said initial studies at the project area indicated a potential of 67 MW.
