KUALA LUMPUR, March 26 -- Users of smart meters and myTNB applications will receive more benefits through the addition of new features as well as service upgrades by the fourth quarter, at the latest.
Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) Project director Ir Mohamed Ghous Ahmad said that among the new features would be notifications on detection of supply disruption and periodic supply disruption.
“Through the Energy Budget feature, users can plan the amount or limit of monthly electricity consumption and will receive a notification when the monthly bill had reached the fixed limit.
“Another feature of the smart meter is its ability to encourage consumers to use electricity more efficiently and save energy, thus help reduce the emission of carbon dioxide,” he said.
He said these new features were in line with TNB’s efforts to support and realise the government’s aspirations to benefit the people by empowering the field of digital economy
Mohamed Ghous said this while giving a briefing during a working visit by Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources deputy secretary-general Noor Afifah Abdul Razak and Energy Commission chief executive officer Abdul Razib Dawood at the Smart Meter Operation Centre on March 23.
Also present were TNB Chief Distribution Network Officer Wan Nazmy Wan Mahmood and TNB chief Regulatory and Stakeholder Management Officer Datuk Wira Roslan Ab Rahman.
TNB has installed over one million smart meters thus far, with 788,000 installations involving users in the Klang Valley and 317,000 more in Melaka.
A total of 9.1 million households in Peninsular Malaysia are expected to be equipped with the smart meter by 2026.
Until the end of last month, more than 4.8 registered account holders had used the myTNB application.
A combination of this application and the smart meter can help consumers to control and monitor their electricity usage.
TNB is the agent implementing the programme to instal the smart meters so as to support the government’s aspirations to empower consumers and increase digitalisation among the people under the Incentive Based Regulation (IBR) mechanism.
