This is a big deal for expats living in Dubai right now!
Your life is about to get a little easier starting December 1, 2020 when you see a major drop in your Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) bills.
This is in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to increase the share of renewable and clean energy in Dubai’s energy mix.
DEWA bills in the emirate will decrease as a result of fuel surcharges for electricity and water by up to 33%
The revised surcharge for electricity is 5 fils per kilowatt-hour instead of 6.5 fils (23% reduction), while the surcharge for water has dropped from 0.6 fils per Imperial Gallon to 0.4 fils (33% reduction).
The decision reflects the Supreme Council’s commitment to enhancing Dubai’s position in providing electricity and water services at globally competitive prices.
AHHH finally some good news as we near the end of 2020!!!
