Water & electricity bills won’t exceed monthly KD 70 – MEW official

KUWAIT CITY, April 2, (KUNA): The Ministry of Electricity and Water (MEW) said Saturday a monthly electricity and water bill would not exceed Kuwaiti dinars (KD) 70 ($232) on basis of government’s proposed tarrif increase.

Mashaan Al-Otaibi, MEW’s Assistant Undersecretary for Planning and Training, was brushing aside social media reporting what he called “exaggerated” tariffs if the proposed increase was implemented.

These reports “are not true and were based on unrealistic assumptions of the monthly consumption,” he said in a statement. Al-Otaibi said the proposed tariff increase aimed at cutting consumption of public, explaining that around 70 percent of citizens’ monthly bills were below KD 50. If the public decrease consumption by 70 percent, he said, the monthly bill would not exceed KD 70.
