DUBAI 30 November 2020: The Dubai Supreme Council of Energy has issued a decision to reduce the fuel surcharge for electricity and water.
- Fuel surcharge for electricity will be 5 fils for kilowatt hour instead of 6.5 fils currently.
- Fuel surcharge for water will be 0.4 fils for Imperial Gallon instead of 0.6 fils currently.
The fuel surcharge reduction will be applied on electricity and water bills from 1 December 2020.
The fuel surcharge has been cut by 23% for electricity and by 33% for water.
The savings achieved as a result of the increase in solar energy production will be passed to customers, according to a Supreme Council decision.
