This qualitative research aimed to 1. To analyze the model of public service. 2. To propose guidelines for development of the pilot program of free solar PV rooftop. By analyzing data from documents and in-depth interviews from 3 samplings, including public service agents, professionals in solar cell and the pilot program of free solar PV rooftop participants.
The result revealed that the pilot program of free solar PV rooftop is co-production in public service. Which comes from working together between public sector, private sector and public participation. For the pilot program of free solar PV rooftop development, public sector should constrain citizens to be the center of the government in the preparation of public services and unlock the conditions of the pilot program. Self-electricity consumption support scheme is the suitable condition, by supporting incentive schemes, encouraging citizens to self-produced electricity through net-metering system or net-billing system. Due to the analysis based on the economics of self- electricity consumption from revealed the pilot program participants finding, there is an excess amount of electricity remaining from the electricity produced by solar PV rooftop system on average 120.3-231.1 kWh/month.
