About Generation Tariff

Base Generation Costs is a variable component in the Base Tariff where it is subjected to the demand and supply movement in the global fuel market (e.g. coal & gas) and movement in the foreign currency (e.g. USD to RM). These two factors are beyond our control which require Imbalance Cost Pass Through (ICPT) mechanism to cater for the movements. ICPT reflects variations in the Base Generation Costs whereby any savings or additional costs will be passed-through to the consumers via rebate or surcharge.
