Electricity tariffs expected to rise next year

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian are likely to get higher electricity bills next year when Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) implements the Fuel Cost Pass-Through (FCPT) mechanism to determine electricity tariffs more efficiently for consumers.

Energy, Green Technology and Water Deputy Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid said Monday the mechanism was one of the components in the Incentive-Based Regulation (IBR), under the electricity tariff rate determination programme.

“The Energy Commission is in the process of implementing the IBR and among the components to be implemented is the FCPT mechanism.

“Under this mechanism, any change in the fuel will be channelled to the consumers based on the tariff set by the Government,” he said in the Dewan Rakyat in reply to a question from Liang Teck Meng (BN-Simpang Renggam).

Liang wanted to know when the FCPT mechanism would be implemented by TNB to reflect the actual cost of fuel. – Bernama

Getting FiT can mitigate the rising cost. It is time to stand up and be counted for those who want to install the solar panels. Please email info.gcroa@gmail.com.

    IMHO, say what you like, utilities , like education, health, water, electricity..etc should not be
    Privatised. TNB makes tons of money n the people who benefit are the senior employees n those who can afford to buy their shares. The poor don’t use much electricity n are not affected, but as usual it’s the struggling middle class that are ripped off.:-(
