No Electricity Supply Cuts Until Sept 30

Be the first to review

Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) will not cut electricity supply to consumers whose bills are in arrears until Sept 30.

Energy and Natural Resources Minister Datuk Dr Shamsul Anuar Nasarah said thus, consumers who faced financial difficulties following the implementation of the Movement Control Order (MCO) on March 18 to contain the spread of Covid-19 in the country, need not worry that their electricity supply would be cut. 

He said this at a media conference here today regarding the issue of high electricity bills following the MCO which ended on May 3 and replaced by the Conditional MCO the next day. Present were TNB president and chief executive officer (CEO) Datuk Seri Amir Hamzah Azizan and Energy Commission (ST) CEO Razib Dawood. 

Asked why TNB meter readers were not on duty during the MCO which led to a spike in electricity billing, Shamsul said TNB did not allow them to go out to read meters after obtaining feedback from various parties on the Covid-19 threat especially from the National Security Council (MKN).
