Ministry assures consumers of stable electricity supply

The Ministry of Electricity, Water, and Renewable Energy urged continued energy conservation to maintain a safe state, especially in the current and upcoming months, emphasizing the need for ongoing conservation efforts throughout the year.

  • The Ministry of Electricity, Water, and Renewable Energy offers double savings for customers who reduce consumption by less than 20%, a 40% discount for savings of 20% or more on electricity bills, and a 50% discount on water bills for savings of 25% or more.

The Ministry of Electricity, Water, and Renewable Energy reassured consumers that the load crisis and scheduled power outages have been resolved. They also urged continued energy conservation to maintain a safe state, especially in the current and upcoming months, emphasizing the need for ongoing conservation efforts throughout the year, according to Al Rai newspaper.

Eng. Falah Al-Mutairi, the Acting Assistant Undersecretary for Customer Services, reassured citizens and residents that the programmed power outage crisis had been overcome, stating, “We have resolved the crisis, thank God, and things are very good.” However, he also emphasized “the importance of community efforts to rationalize electricity and water consumption, and urged cooperation with the ministry on this critical issue.”

Al-Mutairi highlighted the ministry’s efforts to promote conservation by introducing incentives through the ‘incentive’ program launched in 2021. This initiative rewards customers who reduce their consumption, offering them double the amount saved credited to their accounts.

He outlined the program’s benefits, stating, “Customers saving less than 20 percent receive double the amount saved, while those saving 20 percent or more enjoy a 40 percent discount on their electricity bills. For water bills, saving 25 percent or more results in a 50 percent discount.”

For his part, Major General (Retired) Faisal Al-Jazzaf, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Retired Officers Association, emphasized the significance of conserving electricity and water, describing it as a ‘national issue.’

He underscored the “citizen’s role in conservation, which he believed serves Kuwait’s interests and society.”

Al-Jazzaf urged the public to reduce electricity consumption to alleviate strain on the grid and to address excessive water wastage, particularly by domestic workers washing cars.

Al-Mutairi stated, “There is a demand from citizens for the ‘incentive’ program, as financial amounts were deposited into clients’ accounts last February, totaling KD 121,000.
