Consumption charges for residents will drop from 0.28 AED/kwh to 0.22 AED/kwh
Al Hamra Real Estate has announced up to 20 percent reductions in cooling charges for residents from the start of this month onwards.
The discount, in light of the current coronavirus outbreak, will benefit those living in the Bayti villas, The Royal Breeze Residences, The Marina Apartments, The Golf Apartments and Bab al Bahr Residences.
Consumption charges will drop from 0.28 AED/kwh to 0.22 AED/kwh.
Benoy Kurien, group CEO of Al Hamra, said: “With this reduction, residents’ chillers bills would be nine percent to 20 percent lower than similar communities across the UAE.”
Al Hamra has increased cleaning and sanitisation at all facilities and community areas in a bid to reduce the spread of the deadly Covid-19 virus. While, to reduce exposure and face-to-face interactions, it has also temporarily closed common facilities like beach, gyms, swimming pools, kids play area, BBQ areas and party halls.
Kurien added: “We have taken all necessary measures and precautions to curtail the spread of the Covid-19 virus and the health, wellbeing and comfort of our residents remain our top priority.”
