Taman Lestari is a project of integrated renewable energy sources using wind and solar. This project is new in area of renewable energy and there is still much to explore and understand since not all technology in this area suitable to be implemented in Malaysia climate.The project that started on 2015 was a collaboration project between SIRIM and Centre for Earth Resources Research & Management (CERRM), to see the potential of wind energy generated in Malaysia. This project that combine solar and wind energy is expected to be finished by 1st quarter of 2017.
Using six solar panel donated by Malaysia Solar Resources (MSR), this research will change DC energy from the solar panel into AC energy using micro inverter technology. This technology is still very new and still under testing process, where the small inverter is install at the back of solar panel. Meanwhile, for wind energy, four windmill from horizontal and vertical type will be used. Unstable AC energy generated need to be change into DC to stabilize the energy and change it back as stabled AC energy before it can be used in our daily lives.
