Ruler of Sharjah and Supreme Council Member HH Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, has ordered a 10% reduction in the value of Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (SEWA) bills for a three-month period in the emirate of Sharjah.

The move is aligned with the emirate’s efforts to facilitate SEWA subscribers to ease their financial burdens, owing to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.

HH Dr Sheikh Sultan stated on his website that the reduction in electricity bills will cost the Sharjah government more than $62.6m (AED230m) for the three-month period.

The Sharjah Ruler also said that the government is constantly following developments and taking appropriate measures.
