The new Electricity tariff will take effect from today. Consumers have been adviced to be more prudent in their use of electrity. Under the new tariff, Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) decided that domestic users would still be eligible for the existing tariff of 21.8 sen/kWh if their monthly usage did not exceed 200 kilowatt hour (kWh).However, for electricity usage between 201 kWh and 400 kWh, they will have to pay 34.5 sen per kWh unit.The rate will increase on subsequent 100 kWh of usage -- 30 sen for 401-500 kWh, 39 sen (501-600 kWh), 40 sen (601-700 kWh), 41 sen (701-800 kWh) and 43 sen (801-900 kWh).A maximum rate of 46 sen will be charged for each kWh when the usage reaches 901 kWh and above.
It is expected that most households would be affected by the new tariff since consumers use more than 200 kilowatt hours.
