Description:

In 2007, the Thai government began offering feed-in premiums or "adders" on top of the regular electricity tariff of THB 2.0-2.5/kWh (THB 35 = USD 1).

Goal of the feed-in premium scheme is to support deployment of renewable energies in Thailand. The aim is to add 2 GW of large solar installations by 2021.

Amended:

Above was modified in March 2009, and are provided for between seven to ten years, with a "special adder" provided for Thailand's three southern provinces or remote areas. These are BHT 1.00/kWh for all technologies, except wind and solar for which they reach BHT 1.50/kWh.

Tariffs as of March 2009 are as follows:

In 2015 the scheme was replaced by the Feed-in Tariff for Very Small Power Producers (VSPP) of less than 10 MW installed capacity.
