KUALA LUMPUR: The electricity tariff will be increased by about 15% for Peninsular Malaysia, and by about 17% for Sabah and Labuan from next year, said Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister Datuk Dr Maximus Johnity Ongkili.

“The average electricity tariff in Peninsular Malaysia will be up 4.99 sen per kWh or 14.89%, from the current average rate of 33.54 sen/kWh to 38.53 sen/kWh.

“For Sabah and Labuan, the average tariff will be up 5.0 sen per kWh or 16.9%, from current average rate of 29.52 sen per kWh to 34.52 sen per kWh,” he told reporters at a press conference in Parliament on Monday.

Rates in Sarawak will not be affected. The new rates will take effect from Jan 1, 2014, he added.
