Tenaga Nasional Bhd has formed a partnership with Gamuda Land, Gamuda Bhd’s property arm. This partnership will allow for two solar-powered electric vehicle charging stations in Selangor property development projects.


According to a statement, both companies signed a memorandum to understand in order to develop stations at Gamuda Cove (southern Klang Valley) and Gamuda Gardens (northern Klang Valley) for the benefit of communities and visitors to the Gamuda Cove water park.

According to the statement, the stations will be available to motorists by 2025 and will help accelerate the development of the infrastructure and ecosystem for EVs in the country. This will support the sustainability vision of both companies.

Rooftop solar panels will power the electron stations, which help to offset electricity from a grid and promote a cleaner environment. Both companies will be exploring other sustainable energy options under TNB’s offering in Gamuda Land townships.

TNB chief strategy officer and ventures officer Datuk Megat Jalaluddin Megat Hassan said that the MOU will allow the power company to work with Gamuda Land towards increasing the use of EVs in Malaysia and achieving the country’s goal of net zero emissions by 2050.
