PUTRAJAYA: Domestic users who utilise less than RM77 or 300 kilowatts of electricity a month are entitled to free electricity from April to June, Energy and Natural Resources Minister Shamsul Anuar Nasarah said.
He said this will benefit 4 million users.
Those who utilise more than 300 kilowatts a month will also receive a RM77 monthly discount in their electricity bills for the period. This will benefit another 3.66 million users.
Shamsul said this is part of the Electricity Prihatin Aid implemented on April 1.
“Any credit will be reflected in the July bill,” he told a press conference at the Energy Commission here today.
His announcement comes in the wake of outcry over a sudden spike in electricity costs since the movement control order (MCO) was implemented on March 18.
Also present was Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) chairman Mahdzir Khalid.
