Water and electricity bills


New utility bill for water and for electricity were introduced in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi in March 2012. These bills provide more information about water and electricity consumption and are a useful tool to aid better management of water and electricity use.

Customers of the Abu Dhabi Distribution Company (ADDC) or the Al Ain Distribution Company (AADC) now receive separate bills for water and electricity showing the Government subsidy. In addition, residential customers’ bills show two “consumption bands” which indicate an ideal-average, and above ideal-average range of consumption (see the green and red consumption icons below).

Why the new bill?

A growing population and economic growth is putting pressure on the Emirates resources. The Government of Abu Dhabi is therefore taking steps now, to help ensure a continuous and secure supply of water and electricity for the future. The new electricity and water bills are one way to provide better visibility of power and water consumption, and influence long-term behavioural changes around the use of these resources.

UAE National customers will continue to receive water free of charge. However, the new bill is a useful information tool to aid managing water consumption.

Consumption bands

The consumption bands reflect an average range for water and electricity use, depending on whether a customer resides in an apartment (“flat”) or a villa (referred to as “all other premises” in the table below).

the ideal-average consumption (“in the green”)

the above ideal-average consumption (“In the red”)

Whether “in the green” or “in the red”, customers can adjust water and electricity use to keep within the ideal range of consumption for their type of property.

The consumption bands are based on annual averages for each property type and are as follows:

Ideal averageAbove ideal-average
Property typeFlatAll other premisesFlat All other premises
Electricity (units per day)0-200-20021+201+
Water (litres per day)0-7000-5000701+5001+
