15th January 2018: – WCC is working with Federation of Malaysian Consumer Associations (FOMCA) and Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) as part of awareness initiatives on smart meter billing. The deployment of new TNB’s smart meter across Malaysia had began with Malacca, where 300,000 households are involved for the initial phase roll-out installation exercise. WCC was invited in the awareness roadshow program to present on wireless radiation coming from the installed smart meter.
