Abstract

The extensive fossil fuel exploitation to fulfill almost all human activities for energy consumption has led to some unwanted atmospheric and environmental pollution. Photovoltaic system (PVS) or "solar electricity" converts sunlight {light energy) into electricity is produced with minimal pollution, minimal maintenance and with the good intention to tap the most powerful renewable natural resources in the galaxy-Sun. The objectives of this study are (1) to investigate the factors which needs to be considered, (2) to evaluate these factors throughly, and (3) to propose to the top management for PVS adoption onto the administration building of Johor Matriculation College (ABJMC), after some innovative suggestions have been made to overcome the negative factors for the ease of this technology adoption. Although ABJMC is a non-profit organisation, it is still pressurred by monthly high electricity bill that burdens the ABJMC's operations (particularly on the administration building that consumes energy the most). Consequently, an alternative way of attain energy efficiency has to be considered which lead to the crystalisation of the researcher's idea for PVS adoption. As PVS has never been implemented in ABJMC, this research is an exploratory case study. The qualitative method through in-depth interview with twenty two significant respondents was conducted, which took in the management of ABJMC, the technicians and also the vendors of PVS. With the concrete evidence generated from this research, the research outcomes are supporting the worthiness of the PVS adoption in ABJMC. This technology will enhance the energy efficiency, as well as saving monthly electricity bill for ABJMC. As a conclusion, with the national renewable energy policy, incentives provided, the natural structure of the administration building, our climate advantage and the commitment of the management from ABJMC, the PVS adoption in ABJMC is viable and exciting to be looking forward.
