Important information

The new tariffs for electricity consumption have been gradually applied to the consumer groups, with certain conditions and based on several criteria as follows:

 Primary Account tariff

The customer (citizen/resident) has the right to choose two accounts linked to his Civil Number / Resident Number to apply the tariff of the Primary Account to them. However, if he possesses more than two electricity accounts linked to his Civil Number/ Resident Number, he will automatically receive the Primary Account Tariff on the two accounts that consume the most. If you wish to change the two accounts listed under the Primary Account Tariff, please contact the Contact Center at 80070008 and our specialists will take the required action.

 Additional Accounts:

All other accounts that are not subjected to the Primary Account tariff will be subjected to the Additional Account Tariff and that is including the Accounts Numbers that are not updated and linked with customer ID Number and the additional accounts rather than the two primary accounts.
