“But I am disappointed that the (government’s) agreement with the SV still rewards those with high electricity consumption. It benefits those with large properties the most. Instead, you could give more to those who have the least,” he said.
The MDG believes that the limit for using electricity support should be a maximum of 3,000 kWh, not 5,000 kWh, as the government parties and SV have agreed.
