The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) will be reducing surges for electricity and water bills starting December 1.
This means that residents in the emirate will pay less for their water and electricity bills in the coming months.
The decision of DEWA was in line with the directives of His Highness Shiekh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
Electricity prices will be down from 6.5 fils to only 5 fils per kilowatt-hour. Meanwhile, water will be charged only 0.4 fils per Imperial Gallon, down from 0.4 fils.
“HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice Chairman of the Dubai Supreme Council and MD & CEO of DEWA, said that the decision underlines the wise leadership’s keenness to ensure a decent life for the resident of Dubai,” DEWA tweeted.
