Ministry of Electricity and Water expects revenue to exceed 500 million dinars

The Ministry of Electricity and Water (MEW) expects its revenue for the fiscal year 2023/2024 to surpass 500 million dinars, according to sources within the ministry.

The ministry’s revenue is primarily generated from the sale of electricity and water services to customers across Kuwait. The ministry has linked its billing systems with the Ministry of Interior, ensuring that expatriates settle any outstanding debts before departing the country. Additionally, the ministry has introduced over 20 e-services for customer convenience and expanded its network of customer service centers, particularly in remote areas.

Maintenance work on secondary substations continues

The MEW has announced that it will continue maintenance work on various secondary substations across the six governorates until April 20th. This maintenance will result in temporary power outages in the areas served by the affected substations from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM.

The maintenance work is part of the ministry’s ongoing efforts to strengthen the country’s electricity grid. The affected areas include Bayan, the capital, Al Ardhiya, Sabah Al Salem, Al Qasor, Mahboula, Jahra, Al Nazeem, Al Andalus, Jaber Al Ali, Al Masaeel, and others.

The ministry has advised residents in the affected areas to take the necessary precautions and make alternative arrangements during the power outage. The duration of the outage may vary depending on the nature of the work and the specific needs of the substation.
