常見問題 Frequently Asked Questions

English

What are the advantages of using solar photovoltaic (PV) panels ?


PV panels are very reliable and needs little maintenance. It generates electricity without causing any pollution to the environment, and without the need for any fuel.




How long do solar panels last?


Solar panels do not have any moving parts, and normally should last for more than 25 years.




Can I connect my PV system to the AC distribution board of the building?


Yes, a PV system with a grid-tie inverter can be connected to the electrical distribution system of the building, provided the system fulfills the technical and safety requirements set by the power company. An application has to be made to the power company concerned for such kind of "grid-connection" arrangement.




What is the FiT (Feed In Tariff) Scheme?


You can take part in the scheme by installing a solar and/or wind power renewable energy system on your premises. Once the system is successfully connected to the CLP grid, you can earn FiT payments up to HKD $5 per unit power generated from PV system installed in your premises.




What is the rate of FiT payment?


Depending on the capacity, there are different tiers of FiT scheme. The current FiT rates are
(1) System capacity equal to or less than 10 kW: HK$5.
(2) System capacity greater than 10 kW but not exceeding 200 kW: HK$4; and
(3) System capacity greater than 200 kW but not exceeding 1 MW: HK$3.
The FiT rates will be reviewed annually to review that if a new FiT rates is established, it will be applied to subsequent renewable energy systems participating in the FiT scheme until the rates are updated again. Renewable energy systems that participated in the FiT scheme before the new rates were set will continue to receive the FiT payment with the rate at the same level at the time of their participation in the scheme.

How long will I be eligible for receiving the FiT payment?


FiT payment will be offered throughout the project life of the renewable energy systems or until end 2033, whichever is earlier.




Who is eligible for the FiT Scheme?


Except for government bodies, all customers of the power companies who plan to install distributed RE systems with a generating capacity of up to 1 Megawatt (MW) at their premises in the respective power company’s supply area are eligible for prescribed FiT rates from that power company based on the units of electricity generated, as long as the distributed RE systems are connected to the grid of the relevant power company. RE systems with a generating capacity exceeding 1 MW will be considered on a case-by-case basis. MainSolar provides on-site assessment and inspection, application procedures, and document submission, all free of charge before the work begins.

How much does it cost for Renewable Energy system installation in general?


Capital cost of RE systems varies according to the generating capacity of the systems and RE technology. Generally speaking, the capital cost of a solar energy generation system is around tens of thousands dollars per kilowatt (kW), covering costs of labour and inspection, structural support, inverter(s) and photovoltaic modules, etc. MainSolar provides on-site assessment and inspection, application procedures, and document submission, all free of charge before the work begins.

太陽能光伏板的優點是什麼?


太陽能光伏板非常可靠,而且不需甚麼特別維修保養。光伏板產電不需要任何燃料,亦不會對環境造成任何污染。




太陽能光伏板可使用多久?


因為太陽能光伏板沒有活動部件,所以通常可以使用25年以上,但也因應各種環境因素令效能因時間下降。




我可以將我的光伏系統接駁到建築物的交流配電箱嗎?


可以。如果光伏系統在技術上和安全上達到電力公司的要求,就可以透過一個接駁電網式逆變器連接到建築物的配電系統。以這種方式與電網接駁前,必須向相關的電力公司提出申請。




什麼是「上網電價計劃」?


「上網電價計劃」是政府為推動可再生能源發展的措施。在計劃下,在其處所安裝太陽能光伏或風力發電系統,並將系統成功接駁至電力公司電網的人士,能夠以最高港幣$5一度電,向電力公司售賣所生產的可再生能源。 明盛太陽能由咨詢、現場評估環境、辦理及提交所需文件至到工程開展前完全免費為客戶代辦。 歡迎聯絡我們了解更多 電話: 2428 0998 WhatsApp: 9678 8672




上網電價價格是多少?


現時為: (1) 系統發電容量等於或小於 10 kW: $5; (2) 系統發電容量大過 10 kW 但不超過 200 kW: $4;及 (3) 系統發電容量大過 200 kW 但不超過 1 MW: $3。 上網電價價格將每年檢討,檢討若制定新上網電價價格,有關價格將適用於其後參與上網電價計劃的可再生能源系統,直至再次更新價格。在新價格訂定前已參與上網電價計劃的可再生能源系統,則會繼續按照參與計劃時的上網電價水平收取上網電價。




享有上網電價的年期為多長?


可再生能源系統擁有人可從其系統投產並參與上網電價計劃起計,按參與計劃時的上網電價水平獲得上網電價,直至 2033 年 12 月 31 日 (相等於政府與電力公司簽訂的新《管制計劃協議》的年期屆滿當日)或至該系統的使用壽命完結,以較早者為準。換言之,可再生能源系統擁有人最多可獲得約 15 年的上網電價(以中電來説,最多可獲得 15 年 3 個月的上網電價;港燈則爲 15 年)。




誰符合申請「上網電價計劃」的資格?


只需符合以下條件,即可參與此計劃:
1) 電力公司的註冊客戶 (此計劃並不適用於政府機構);
2) 您的可再生能源系統以太陽能發電,系統安裝於您的註冊地址,總發電容量不多於1兆瓦;及
3) 您的可再生能源系統可接駁至電力公司電網,而電力公司無須因此增加電網容量或進行電網強化工程




申請「上網電價計劃」有什麼手續及文件需要呢?


一般而言,申請人須:
1) 為有關電力公司的客戶;
2) 向電力公司提交(ii)身份證 (個人)或商業登記(機構)副本;
3) 向電力公司提交可再生能源系統的設計、技術規格、操作程序、測試及成本資料;及
4) 確認明白相關工程的條例、法定規例及牌照等要求。

可再生能源系統的資本成本一般為多少?


可再生能源系統的資本成本會按系統發電容量大小及發電技術等而有所不同。一般而言,每千瓦發電容量的太陽能發電系統的資本投資為數萬元,當中主要包括工程費、結構支持組件、逆變器及光伏組件等的成本。




如何獲得上網電價款項?


當可再生能源系統成功接駁至電網及安裝智能電錶後,電力公司會按智能電錶紀錄的系統產電量計算該系統可獲取的上網電價款項,定時向有關客戶發放。 明盛太陽能由咨詢、現場評估環境、辦理及提交所需文件至到工程開展前完全免費為客戶代辦。 歡迎聯絡我們了解更多 電話: 2428 0998 WhatsApp: 9678 8672
