Electricity bills: Three months' free for domestic low power users, RM77 discount for others (updated)


Energy and Natural Resources Minister Datuk Dr Shamsul Anuar Nasara.

PUTRAJAYA: The Government has announced an additional RM942mil in discounts and rebates for domestic users' electricity bills.

Energy and Natural Resources Minister Datuk Dr Shamsul Anuar Nasarah said the Bantuan Prihatin Elektrik Tambahan is on top of the existing discounts on Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) electricity bills announced during the government's economic stimulus package earlier.

In a press conference on Saturday (June 20), he said four million domestic consumers with electricity consumption of 300 kWh and below per month would enjoy free electricity for April, May and June 2020.

Domestic consumers with consumption of more than 300 kWh per month over the same period would get a discount of RM77 per month.

Shamsul Anuar also said the rebates would be reflected in the July bill.

Additionally, TNB also agreed to halt all electricity disconnection activity until Sept 30,2020.
