KUALA LUMPUR, July 27: The power outages that occurred in several areas in Peninsular Malaysia since 12.39 today involved 2.2 gigawatts (GW) which is 10 per cent of the entire supply demand.
Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) in a statement said that among the areas involved were Petaling Jaya, Cheras; Bangi (Klang Valley); Bayan Lepas and Seberang Jaya (Penang); Panchor, Johor and Bandar Indera Mahkota, Pahang.
