Electricity Continues Even During Power Outage
Often times the Malaysian electricity board, be it Tenaga Nasional Berhad, Sabah Electricity (SESB) or Sarawak Energy would occasionally require maintenance for their substation. They would normally try their best to do it during holidays such as Hari Raya or the Chinese New Year festive season. However all of us know this cannot be the case because number one, they would be short of staff during holidays and number two, how many substation can they handle per holiday? Because of that we as electricity users may fall victim to “shut downs” which means that your power needs to be cut during whatever the time is, to make way for them to maintain their equipment. And what this really means is, you will not be able to cook, switch on the air conditioning, fan and even your freezer will not work. As a result, you can’t serve your customers, hence loss in revenue. The chain reaction is very real. Losing money especially in high traffic locations such as Publica, Sri Hartamas or Bangsar is no joke.
