Tariffs to remain static: DEWA
Dubai power and water tariffs won't increase for "a few years"
DEWA, the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, has announced it isn’t planning to increase electricity and water tariffs in the near future, though declining to specify an exact length of time.
“There will be no increase in the tariff of electricity and water consumption during the few coming years in Dubai,” said Nejib Al Zaafrani, secretary general and CEO of Dubai’s Supreme Council of Energy.
“Tariffs cannot be changed without a comprehensive study, taking into consideration all the elements that will be affected by such a step, as well as the common good of the UAE and its citizens,” he added.
