Abstract

Malaysian people tend to use electricity generated from non-renewable fossil fuel every day and unaware of the situation that these resources are actually decreasing and depleting due to its rapid consumption. This is due to the rapid development of Malaysia that leads to heavy consumption of electricity in their lifestyle. In addition, the lack of knowledge of these people on the importance of renewable energy that can act as supplement power for electricity. People also are unaware of global warming issue and carbon footprints that produced due to electricity generation. Frequent blackouts can also occur in the future if the non-renewable resources deplete. Therefore, it is necessary to find a solution to overcome this situation. The aim of this research is to explore the establishment of using renewable energy sources as a supplement energy for electricity in order to establish a sustainable community lifestyles in Malaysia. The focus of this study is to enhance and encourage people in middle and low-income group in Malaysia to use energy generated from renewable energy. The most accessible renewable energy that can be gained in Malaysia is solar energy. Therefore, it is wise to propose a sustainable community lifestyle in Malaysia which is based on the application of solar energy. Through extensive literature, case studies, field observation, survey, simulation and modelling, the feasibility of establishing a
sustainable solar community lifestyle can be explore. The focus of these studies is to help the middle and lowincome group communities in Malaysia to obtain a sustainable lifestyle without the power interruption issue in the future. An analysis will be made and will be seen if the establishment of solar PV technology can be integrated
as future technologies
