Surcharge on Electricity Bills for Renewable Energy Fund Revised from 1.0% to 1.6%
 

Putrajaya, Tuesday (3 December 2013): The Chairman of Sustainable Energy Development Authority (SEDA) Malaysia Y.Bhg. Datuk Dr Yee Moh Chai today echoed the announcement made on Monday, 2nd December 2013 by the Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water regarding the revised surcharge on electricity bill for the Renewable Energy (RE) Fund. Effective 1st January 2014, the surcharge will be revised from 1.0% to 1.6% for distribution licensees such as Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB). It is to be noted for Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd (SESB) consumers this is the first time a 1.6 % surcharge on electricity bill will take effect.

The RE Fund is created via Section 23 of the Renewable Energy Act 2011 through the implementation of the Feed-in Tariff (FiT) mechanism enabling electricity generated from renewable sources to be paid a premium tariff. The FiT mechanism was implemented on the 1st December 2011 with the enforcement the RE Act 2011. However not all electricity consumers are obliged to contribute to the RE Fund. While the RE Fund is critical to ensure the sustainable growth of renewable energy, the Government is mindful to protect consumers with 300 kWh and less of electricity usage (equivalent to RM77) who will be exempted from such contribution. In Peninsular Malaysia only 29% and 38% from Sabah, of the total domestic electricity consumers will be affected.
