KUALA LUMPUR: Consumers who have been heavily relying on air conditioners to cope with the hot weather are finding it costly indeed. Their electricity bills have spiked, many by three times or more.

Their heavy usage was reflected in the country’s electricity consumption reaching an all-time high peak demand of 17,175MW last month, according to Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB).
