Default Fined for using too little electricity

Thursday August 4, 2011

Businesses fined for low power usage

Business owners whose electricity usage is less than the minimum 0.85 power factor are being fined by Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), reported China Press.

The daily quoted a tyre shop operator, who only wanted to be known as Chan, as saying that the electricity tariff at her shop was only RM300 or so.

She said that after TNB changed her meter early this year, she was fined RM93 and RM163 respectively in May and June.
Chan said she was not able to get a reasonable answer from TNB when she called the company.

“It should be a good thing when we do not use a lot of electricity. I do not know why we are fined for low electricity usage because we are not thieves,” she said.

The daily quoted a TNB officer as saying that based on the company's payment scheme, business owners must achieve the minimum 0.85 power factor or risk being fined.

“These owners have been provided with 0.85 power factor each month and if a particular user's power factor is lower than that figure, he or she will have to pay a certain amount. The less electricity used, the higher the fine under the scheme,” she said.

She added that the power factor requirement was applicable to business owners only and households were not affected
