Malaysians Are Expecting Another Round Of Electricity Tariff Hike In 2014

Malaysians could expect 10% to 20% increase in electricity tariff per kWh next year, according to Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water, Datuk Seri Dr. Maximus Ongkili. He also added that anything below 20% is reasonable. The final decision has yet to be made by the Cabinet, but the hike could happen anytime in 2014.

The hike will apply to both industrial and households increase. But Ongkili hinted that the government would maintain the current structure where consumers using 300 kWh per month and below would not experience any hike. Below are the snapshots of current domestic and commercial tariffs.
