FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions.
READ MORE

1. What is Green Electricity Tariff (GET) Programme?

  • In line with Malaysian Government's aspiration to increase renewable energy generation to 31% by 2025, the Government has introduced a program known as the Green Electricity Tariff (GET) to replace the previous myGreen+ scheme.
     
  • With the implementation of GET Programme, customers will have the option to subscribe a low carbon electricity supply without having to install their own solar rooftop or other renewable energy installations.

  • In line with GET Guideline, TNB reserves the right to review customer’s GET subscription in the event customer’s actual electricity consumption is lower than their green electricity subscription to ensure fair sharing of limited Green Electricity quota.

4. Why GET Programme is backed with internationally recognized mREC?

  • GET programme is backed by mREC to give assurance that customers will receive green electricity. Customers enrolled in GET programme will receive Malaysia Renewable Energy Certificate (mREC) after the end of a calendar year.

5. How do I ensure the source of energy is from green if I were to subscribe to GET?

  • You will receive an internationally recognized Malaysian Renewable Energy Certificate (mREC) that provides credibility of your electricity coming from a renewable energy generator. The source of REC is from the RE generators connected to the national grid that makes the claim more credible as compared to off-grid. 

6. Who can subscribe to GET and how much is the rate?

  • GET Programme is offered to all TNB customers and they may opt to subscribe to GET Programme in 100 kWh blocks for Residential and 1,000 kWh blocks for Non-Residential at the rate of 3.7 sen/kWh.

When you subscribe to GET, TNB will match 100% of your subscription of GET from TNB renewable energy instead of using energy from natural gas or coal-fired power plants. This green energy enters the electric system daily and reduces the amount of energy you required from fossil-fuel based power plants.
