KUALA LUMPUR: Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) is offering ‘Sinaran Merdeka’ incentive to encourage commercial customers to light up their buildings and surrounding areas with decorative lighting, in conjunction with this year’s 65th National Day.
The utility giant, in a statement, said customers will enjoy the ‘Sinaran Merdeka’ incentive for a period of two months, from Aug 1 to Sept 30 2022.
“The incentive rate of 20.8 sen/kWh offered is lower than the existing rate. The incentive is also given for any amount of increase in electricity consumption exceeding the average consumption in three months from May, June, and July 2022,” TNB said.
