Energy in developing countries essential for economic growth and development. In result of the rapid growth of development, society demands more electricity. In addition to that, unsustainable energy production can have a harmful effect on our environment. Solar energy is the most inexhaustible method of energy. With that has been stated, it is evident that PV technology is starting to be one of the primary roots of energy generator to supply power for development. The economic ambition is to create solar energy more cost effective and efficient, nevertheless, it is still not compatible with fossil fuel. Typically, in order for solar energy to replace the fossil fuel or at least support the development demands of energy, the implementation of solar energy system must increase in homes and plantation projects. This problem drove governments to come up with policies that encourage implementing solar system in homes of citizens. The most used policies are fed in tariff and net energy metering, which is applied in 80 nations round the globe. This paper studied the policies applied in solar energy in Malaysia in the past 8 years. The paper went over each policy and considered their financial and environmental welfare. It did show the effect of the policy applied at the time on the capacity installed in Malaysia.
