Open discussion: Roslina and Zaini listening to a caller during their interview on ‘Ruang Bicara’.

KUALA LUMPUR: The following is the transcription of the interview with the Secretary-General of the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water (KETTHA) Datuk Seri Dr Zaini Ujang and Tenaga Nasional Bhd Vice-President, Regulatory Economics and Planning Datuk Roslina Zainal, aired on Bernama News Channel (BNC)’s Ruang Bicara programme. The interview was on “Regulated Electricity Tariff”, broadcast on July 5 on Astro 502, HyppTV 410 and MYTV 121.

Q: Sometimes, we are confused with the word “tariff” which is always mentioned. It sometimes brings a negative perception. As we are aware, the total Imbalance Cost Pass-Through (ICPT) rebate of RM1.303 billion translates into a tariff of 2.54 sen kWh. As such, certainly the people want to know how they are benefiting.
