Deposit

The calculation of deposits for ordinary power customers in the commercial, industrial, agricultural and mining categories are fixed, based on the size and type of phase installed.
READ MORE

Deposit (Security Deposit)

The government has passed the Electricity Supply Act whereby TNB is allowed to collect a deposit of two (2) months of the customer’s electricity usage.

Calculation of Security Deposit (SD) for Non-Domestic Consumer (Low Voltage & Medium Voltage)

The calculation of SD for non-domestic consumer (Low Voltage and Medium Voltage) is based on Maximum Demand declared by the customer or his representatives:

i) The formula for determining SD is as follows:

SD = Average Consumption/Month (kWh) X Average Selling Price (ASP) X 2

Where,

       Average Consumption/Month (kWh) = Maximum Demand Declared X 0.75 X 730 hrs X Load Factor

ii) Example of SD calculation, if declared maximum demand (MD) is 60 kW

Average Consumption/Month (kWh

= 60 x 0.75 x 730 hours x 0.44

= 14, 454 kWh

Security Deposit

= Average Consumtion/Month (kWh) x ASP x 2

= 14,454 x 0.445 x 2

= RM 12,864.00 @ RM 12,860.00

iii) The category of non-domestic load factor is shown in the table below.

Customer Category Load Factor
Commercial 0.44
Mining 0.44
Agriculture/Livestock 0.44
Streetlight 0.50
Industrial 0.60

Schedule of Average Selling Price (ASP)

Tariff Code Tariff Description ASP* (RM/kWh)
A Domestic 0.318
B Low Voltage Commercial 0.502
C1 Medium Voltage General Commercial 0.445
C2 Medium Voltage Peak/Off Peak Commercial 0.405
D Low Voltage Industrial 0.442
E1 Medium Voltage General Industrial 0.433
E2 Medium Voltage Peak/Off Peak Industrial 0.369
E3 High VoltagePeak/Off-Peak Industrial 0.347
F Low Voltage Mining 0.301
F1 Medium Voltage General Mining 0.281
F2 Medium Voltage Peak/Off-Peak Mining 0.236
H Low Voltage Specific Agriculture 0.474
H1 Medium Voltage General Specific Agriculture 0.429
H2 Medium Voltage Peak/Off-Peak Specific Agriculture 0.404
G Street Lighting 0.253
G1 Neon And Floodlight 0.253

*Based on current tariff rate approved by Government

Payment Method

  • For deposits less than RM2,000.00, you are required to pay in cash.
  • For deposit more than RM2,000.00, a bank guarantee is preferred

Reduction in Security Deposit Amount

If the average of two (2) months bill is less than the amount of security deposit paid, TNB will refund the excess deposit upon customer’s request. For example:

Security Deposit Paid RM10,000.00
Average Monthly Bill RM3,500.00
Average of two (2) months electricity used RM7,000.00
Amount credited to account (RM10,000–RM7,000) RM3,000.00

Interest on Security Deposit

Commencing January 1, 2017, the annual cash security deposit rebates for all TNB's customers will be implemented by cumulating the amount of the deposit rebates (2.5% per annum of the cash deposit amount).

This year's implementation practice is different compared to the previous years, which will see the rebate amount credited into the users' existing security deposit in the month of January every year.

For Example:

Total Cash Security Deposit as of 31 December 2016: RM1, 000
Annual Rebates Received: RM1,000 X 2.5% = RM25.00
New Total Security Deposit as at 1st January 2017 :RM1,000 + RM25.00 = RM1,025

Connection Charges

A connection charge is the upfront payment made by consumers who require a new electricity supply infrastructure and/or an upgrade of an existing infrastructure to cater for additional power supply. The connection charge is imposed as part of TNB’s cost to build the infrastructure for an electricity supply.
READ MORE

The Government has recently approved enhanced terms for Connection Charge. In line with this, TNB will be implementing these enhanced terms in the connection charge invoice effective from 15th January 2021.

The updated terms are as below:

Type of Consumers

Consumers are categorized based on the supply voltage level, as follows:

  • Low Voltage: Supply voltage below 6.6kV
  • Medium Voltage: Supply voltage from 6.6kV and below 132kV
  • High Voltage: Supply voltage 132kV and above

Statement of Connection Charges

1. Low Voltage Consumer

Connection charges for Low Voltage consumer consists of:

i) Maximum Demand Charge
ii) Additional Cable Charge (if any)
iii) Special Features Charges (if any)

Maximum Demand Charge

  • Connection charge depends on Maximum Demand requested by the consumer. The charges is as per Schedule 1.
  • This only applicable for request of supply not more than 6 km away from the nearest available supply (that could meet the requested load demand)
  • Should the nearest available supply be unable to meet the requested load, the supply may have to be drawn from the nearest substation. In this case, the connection charge still applies as long as the distance does not exceed 6 km

Additional Cable Charge

  • Should the distance exceed 6 km, the consumer will only pay for the size of the cable necessary to meet the requested load in excess of 6 km based on standard rate of the cable as shown in Schedule 2, even though a larger cable may be laid by TNB to meet the demand of other consumers.

Special Features Charge

  • Any request for additional or special features, e.g special request for an additional feeder by consumer or any request from third party such as Local Authority or Government Agencies, the consumer will be required to pay the full cost of the additional request.

2. Medium Voltage Consumer

Connection Charges for Medium Voltage Consumer consist of:

i) Maximum Demand Charge
ii) Additional Cable Charge (if any)
iii) Special Features Charge (if any)
iv) Connected Load Charge
v) Liquidated Damages

Maximum Demand Charge

  • Connection charge per kilowatt Maximum Demand (kW MD) is applicable. The amount to be paid depends on the Maximum Demand requested by the consumer.
  • The connection charge is RM 45/kW MD
  • The substation building and the land is to be leased to TNB at a nominal cost of RM10. 
  • In the even that disagreement arises between the owner and TNB, then the cost of any land will be determined in the manner as stipulated in the provisions under the Electricity Supply Act 1990
  • Applicable only for requests of supply not more than 6 km away from the nearest available supply (that is able to meet the requested load demand).
  • Should the nearest available supply be unable to meet the requested load, the supply may have to be drawn from the nearest substation. In this case, the connection charge still applies as long as the distance does not exceed 6 km.

Additional Cable Charge

  • Should the distance exceed 6 km, the consumer will only pay for the size of the cable necessary to meet the requested load in excess of 6 km based on standard rate of the cable as shown in Schedule 2, even if a larger cable is laid by TNB to meet the demands of other consumers.

Special Features Charge

  • Any request for additional or special features, e.g special request for an additional feeder by consumer or any request from third party such as Local Authority or Government Agencies, the consumer will be required to pay the full cost of this additional request.

Connected Load Charge

  • Connected Load Charge (CLC) is subjected to consumers who take supply at Medium Voltage and High Voltage. Please find the details of CLC information here.

Liquidated Damages

  • Liquidated Damages (LD) is applicable for consumers who fail or cease to take supply for 5 years after supply has been connected. The basis of calculating the quantum of Liquidated Damages is as follows:

For each month in the 5 year period, the consumer shall pay 1/120 of the Net Capital Cost of the project.

In general, the LD is calculated according to the formula:

  1/120 x Net Capital Project Cost x (60-n)
  = (60 - n) x (P-C)
              120

Where : 

P – Total capital cost of the project 
C – Connection charge paid by the consumer
(P-C) – Net Capital Cost of the project
N – number of months that have lapsed after supply is given

3. High Voltage Consumer

Connection Charges for High Voltage Consumer consists of:

i) Connection Charges based on 1st Principle calculation
ii) Refundable Connection Charges if Connection Charges under 1st Principle is greater than Project Cost
iii) Premium for project implement under fast track timeline (if any)
iv) Project Minimum Monthly Charge (PMMC)
v) Special Features Charge (if any)
vi) Connected Load Charge
vii) Liquidated Damages

Connection Charges based on 1st Principle calculation

The basis of the charges is that the consumer has to make up for the shortfall in the return on the capital invested by TNB (herein after defined as “Project Cost”), at internal rate of return (IRR) approved by the Government and secured through the revenue earned from the sales of electricity to the consumer for a 15 year period of supply.

IRR is the Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) approved by the Government under the Incentive-based Regulation (IBR) regime.

The formula for the connection charge is given as below:

Revenue – Running Cost = Annuity Amount
Present Value Future Cash Flow = Annuity Amount times by PVIFAWACC

Where:-

PVIFA - Present Value Interest Factor of an Annuity; and
WACC - Weighted Average Cost of Capital

Connection Charges is payable if Present Value Future Cash Flow < Project Cost

If the return falls short of the annual return required (Present Value Future Cash Flow is less than Project Costs), then a connection charge is levied by an amount so that the resultant investment by TNB is reduced to such an extent that the required return is achieved.

Under this principle, the capital invested by TNB of the project attributable to the consumer (Project Cost) is dependent on the nature of the supply based on the following criteria:

  • If the supply is fully dedicated to the consumer, full project cost will be imposed to determine as the baseline to identify if Present Value Future Cash Flow is greater or less than the project costs; or
  • If the supply is non-dedicated to the consumer or will be part of TNB’s transmission network, Project Cost will be apportion depending to the requested Maximum Demand of the consumer and the carrying capacity of the transmission line.

Refundable Connection Charges if Connection Charges under 1st Principle is greater than Project Cost

Based on principle mentioned under 1st Principle calculation where consumer is not subjected to connection charges if Present Value Future Cash Flow is greater than Project Cost, consumer is subjected to Refundable Connection Charges (RCC) which is equivalent to 25% from the Project Cost.

RCC = 25% x Project Cost

Consumer is required to achieve 75% from its declared Maximum Demand within:

  • Six (6) years from when the new supply is commissioned for the new consumer; or
  • Five (5) years from when the upgraded supply is commissioned for existing consumer who required the additional load with system upgrading

If the consumer fails to achieve 75% from its Maximum Demand within time mentioned above, TNB will forfeit or claim the RCC.

Premium for project implement under fast track timeline

Consumer may request and TNB may consider, a scheme of supply which is earlier than the date of supply to be made available by TNB in accordance with its current process of providing supply of electricity (herein after defined as “Fast Track Supply”).

For project implemented under Fast Track Supply, the consumer is subjected to premium charges based on the following project timeline:

Level Project Timeline (Months) Premium (% from Project Cost)
1 0 – 12 15
2 13 – 18 10
3 19  - 24 5

The premium charge is an up-front payment which is not part of Project Cost for the purpose of calculating connection charges under 1st Principle.

Project Minimum Monthly Charge (PMMC)

means a fixed monthly charge equivalent to two per cent (2%) of the difference between the Project Cost (as defined below) and the Connection Charge, payable monthly by the Consumer for a maximum period of up to five (5) years from the supply at High Voltage is commissioned.

PMMC = 2% x (P - C)

Where

P - Project Cost
C - Connection charges based on 1st Principle
(P – C) - Net Capital Cost of the project

Special Features Charge

  • Any request for additional or special features, e.g special request for an additional feeder by consumer or any request from third party such as Local Authority or Government Agencies, the consumer will be required to pay the full cost of the additional request.

Connected Load Charge

  • Connected Load Charge (CLC) is subjected to consumer who take supply at Medium Voltage and High Voltage. Please find the details of CLC information here.

Liquidated Damages

  • Liquidated Damages (LD) is applicable for consumers who fail or cease to take supply for 5 years after supply has been connected. The basis of calculating the quantum of Liquidated Damages is as follows:

For each month of the 5 year period the consumer shall pay 1/120 of the Net Capital Cost of the project.

In general, the LD is calculated according to the formula:-

  1/120 x Net Capital Project Cost x (60-n)
  = (60 - n) x (P-C)
              120

Where : 

P – Total capital cost of the project
C – Connection charge paid by the consumer
(P-C) – Net Capital Cost of the project
N – number of months that have lapsed after supply is given
