MEA increases purchase price for household solar in Bangkok and vicinity


The Metropolitan Electricity Authority (MEA) has increased the price at which it purchases solar power from households, government spokeswoman Ratchada Thanadirek revealed on Tuesday.

In a move to encourage households to install solar panels and generate electricity by themselves, the MEA has raised the purchase price from Bt1.68 to Bt2.20 per unit for 10 years in Bangkok, Nonthaburi and Samut Prakan.

Electricity purchase from public solar generators will expand to hospitals and schools soon, Ratchada added.

Solar-powered households can apply to join the project at https://spv.mea.or.th/.
