Budgeting Utility Bills in Dubai Made Easy with DEWA Tariff Calculator

Are you struggling to estimate how much you should allocate for utility bills each month in Dubai? Worried about unexpected spikes in electricity or water costs? The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) offers a convenient solution through its tariff calculator, allowing residents to predict and plan for their utility expenses accurately.

Accessing the DEWA Tariff Calculator

To use the DEWA tariff calculator, follow these simple steps:

1. Visit the DEWA Website or Smart App

   – Navigate to the menu icon (three stacked lines).

   – Go to ‘Billing’ under the consumer section.

   – Click on ‘Tariff calculator’. On the app, find it under ‘Billing’ in the list of services.

2. Select Your Tariff Type

   – Choose between commercial, industrial, or residential.

3. Enter Consumption Details

   – Input your electricity consumption in kilowatt hours (kWh).

   – Enter your water usage in imperial gallons (IG).


Understanding Your Consumption

Water Consumption: Measure your water usage in imperial gallons (1 IG ≈ 4.5 liters). Estimate based on daily activities like bathing, cooking, and washing.

Electricity Consumption: Calculate in kilowatt hours (kWh). For instance, a 500-watt appliance running for 2 hours equals 1 kWh.


Verifying Your Consumption Levels

If you notice unusually high bills, DEWA provides a service to verify your consumption:

1. Access Verification Services
– Visit the DEWA website, app, or contact the customer center.
– Navigate to ‘Consumption Management’ and select ‘Request for consumption verification – electricity/water’.
– Log in with your DEWA ID or UAE Pass. Create an account if needed.

2. Choose Verification Method
– Verify consumption yourself, request a call from a DEWA agent, or schedule an onsite visit.
– Verification and calls are free; onsite visits incur a service fee of Dh30 or Dh75 depending on the meter type.

3. Tracking Your Request
– Track progress through SMS or email notifications.

Ensuring Accuracy

For water meters, DEWA tests and replaces them if necessary in their lab to ensure accurate billing and service continuity.
