Considering the development of the nation, the UAE has announced AED400 discounts for water and electricity bills. Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, supreme council member and the ruler of Sharjah, directed the Sharjah electricity water and Gas Authority (SEWA) to provide an ADE400 discount which will be a benefit for the UAE nation.

According to DEWA, Dubai consumes the most electricity between the time of 12:00 pm and 06:00 pm during the summer. It is considered as the peak period of electricity consumption and this particular time is known as the peak hour loads. The authorities of DEWA suggest that consumers limit the use of non-essential appliances during the peak hours such as avoiding the use of iron boxes, washing machines, water heaters, and electric ovens in the peak hours to decrease the usage of electricity. According to the experts, the appliance on standby consumes 5% more electricity in this period of time so consumers should switch off the device when it is not in use. There are many guidelines provided by the government of UAE to optimize the use of electricity which includes trying air-dying clothes, keeping the air conditioner clean and tidy, switching to energy-efficient lights and appliances and many more.
