Green Electricity Tariff programme continues this year — Minister

PUTRAJAYA, Jan 12 — The implementation of the Green Electricity Tariff (GET) programme that was introduced on January 1, 2022, will continue this year with a quota increase of up to 6,600 gigawatt-hours (GWh) compared to 4,500GWh offered last year.

Natural Resources, Environment and Climate Change Minister Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad said the quota was offered at the existing premium rate of 3.7 sen per kilowatt hour (kWh).

He said the government also maintained the main features of the GET programme including the provision of incentives for the exemption of Imbalanced Cost Pass-Through (ICPT) charges for a period of six months, starting from January to June this year.

“At the same time, the review of this incentive for the period from July to December 2023 is being carried out by the Energy Commission to ensure clarity and fairness (of the mechanism).

“The review takes into account the aspects of reliability assurance and the sustainability of the electricity supply system holistically,” Nik Nazmi said in a statement today.

The GET programme provides domestic and industrial consumers in the peninsula with the option of using electricity generated from renewable energy sources such as hydropower and solar plants.

A total of 1,994 users from the domestic, commercial and industrial categories participated in the GET programme last year.

The minister said users who want to subscribe or renew their GET subscription can submit their application via the Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) website or contact the nearest TNB’s Kedai Tenaga beginning today.
