Malaysian households will now be able to apply for an RM200 e-rebate to buy locally-made energy-efficient refrigerators or air conditioners.
Users could apply for the Sustainability Achieved via Energy Efficiency (Save 2.0) programme via the Shopee app, and get an approval within 14 days.
Once approved, users would get RM200 credited to their app wallet.
The programme was available on a first-come-first-serve basis for Malaysians registered with a domestic electric utility company (Tenaga Nasional Bhd, Sarawak Energy Bhd or Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd).
The Sustainable Energy Development Authority (Seda) is executing the programme, in collaboration with the Energy Commission and Shopee.
It aimed to educate the public about energy-efficient appliances and increase the adoption of appliances with four or five star energy ratings.
Last November, Energy and Natural Resources Minister Datuk Dr Shamsul Anuar Nasarah announced the programme would benefit 140,000 households using an RM30mil allocation under Budget 2021.
