Details of the Bill:

Every electricity bill contains important information. The most important details that need to be taken into account are as follows:-
– Station Number
– Customer’s Account Number
– Last Date of Bill Settlement
– Bill Codes (please refer to the reverse side of the bill)
– Reading (current/previous month)
-Total Amount to be Settled

Estimated Bill:
An estimated bill will be issued when no reading of the meter can be made by the Meter Reader. The estimated meter reading for a domestic customer will be done only for three (3) consecutive months. After that, a notice will be sent to the customer concerned for the meter to be read.
 
Calculation of Estimated Bill:

The estimated bill is based on the previous 6 month average consumption. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that the bill is adjusted. To have the bill adjusted, the customer should contact the local Kedai Tenaga so that a special meter reading can be arranged for an immediate adjustment of the bill done.

Self-Meter Reading

If however, you are a domestic consumer on tariff A and have problems leaving the gate open for monthly electricity meter readings, you can read your own meter . All you have to do is to get a ‘self meter reading card’ from any Kedai Tenaga, fill it up with the meter reading along with the other details required, post it and TNB will send you a bill by post.

This can be done for 3 months consecutively. On the 4th month, TNB will read the meter on a date to be agreed upon by both parties.
 

Notes:
– TNB’s bill must be paid within 15 days (refer to 16 above)

Payment Methods:
– Cash, Cheque, Bank’s autodebit service or ATMs
  (Cross cheque and make payable to Tenaga Nasional Berhad)
– Other Internet Online payment services provided by Malaysian banks

Payment Centers:
– Kedai Tenaga, Post Office, Kedai Telekom
