Electrical Usage at Home


Electrical Knowledge: Did You Know ???

Hi everyone!

Do you know what contributes to your monthly electricity bill?

For those in Semenanjung Malaysia , TNB’s tariff is approximately 30 sen to 45 sen per kilowatt-hour (kWh), depending on your usage. The more you use, the more expensive the rates!

Below is a short table of common electrical appliances, and a rough estimate on how much they cost to run for every hour, 8 hrs., 12 hrs. and 24 hrs.)  (The cost may seem low, but remember, even using 3 sen/hour means that you will be paying about RM 20 a month if you leave it on for 24 hours a day!)

Multiply this figures with the number of days you are using them for a month, that will give you a good estimate of your usage. The only way to control the electrical usage is by monitoring them and aim to reduce them as the year progress.
For the FM staff, you can also try to monitor the usage at every departments/units and reduce our hefty electricity bill. 
Cheers.
