Dubai Electricity & Water Authority | Slab Tariff

Slab Tariff

In line with the decision of the Supreme Energy Council in Dubai to adjust the electricity and water tariff for all DEWA customers which is applied from 1st January 2011, a fuel surcharge is added for electricity & water consumption from this date.

Fuel surcharge in your monthly electricity & water bill will vary based on the rate of increase or decrease of the actual fuel cost supplied to DEWA generation plants.

Fuel Surcharge will be shown separately in your monthly bill and will be charged by Fils/kWh for electricity and Fils/IG for water.

The current tariff intended to promote efficient consumption of electricity and water at a time it is increasingly needed, equally in the conservation and preservation of our precious resources.
