Social Enterprise to reduce electricity bill for B40 household

Home

Problem Statement

B40 group cannot afford to pay monthly electricity bill


B40 household uses of electricity can leapfrog their livelihood. However, paying monthly electricity bills is a painful event. This is further compounded when there's many people within a house. On average B40 in the household Tenaga Nasional electricity bill hovers between RM30 to RM60.
 

Generally this range of electricity bill consumed on average 150kWh per month. This is above the RM40 Electricity Bill Rebate Programme. https://www.tnb.com.my/residential/discounts-rebates-offers Which means bill above RM40, the balance the B40 group needs to pay.


Solution Statement

2 Panels Micro Inverter Solar PV System


The solution to assist B40 group is the installation of 2 Panels Micro Inverter Solar PV System through a Social Enterprise. This new solar generated electricity is to supplement the existing house electricity supply.

This 2 Panels Micro Inverter Solar PV System
is sufficient to generate half of the average typical monthly electricity usage for B40 household group. Which means the monthly total Tenaga Nasional electricity bill will be RM15 to RM30 after the installation of the 2 Panels Micro Inverter Solar PV System.

 

This new monthly Tenaga Nasional electricity charges will be covered by the RM40 Electricity Bill Rebate Programme. Thus B40 group will no longer need to pay monthly electricity bill.
