KUANTAN: A total of 302 substations in Pahang had been shut down due to floods since Sunday, says Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) chairman Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid.
Of the total, only 196 have resumed operations.
The district with the highest number of substations that are still down is Temerloh with 65 substations, along with other districts located along the overflowing Sungai Pahang.
“We have sent gensets to provide power supply, with priority given to temporary relief centres with a large number of flood evacuees as well as rural areas.
“The process of reopening the substations can be done immediately but we have to wait for the water to recede first as a safety measure, ” he told reporters at the North Kuantan Main Intake Substation at yesterday. — Bernama
