The revised tariff above is in line with the current utility cost in the region, these tariffs will be in effect starting from the billing period of February 2014 till the billing period of June 2014. A revised tariff for the chilled water will be announced in July 2014 for the second half of the year, if necessary. However, there will be no changes in the tariffs for electricity for the year 2014 unless the utility suppliers announce an increase.
In keeping with the prevailing tariff for cooling (Chiller charges) in the region we are introducing the concept of demand charge and consumption charge.
Demand Charge for cooling:
The demand charge is a charge billed to a unit every month depending on the tonnage of cooling installed in that unit. This charge is a fix charge that is billed to the unit irrespective of the consumption of the unit in that month. The demand charge is the cost for providing the cooling facility in that building which is distributed to all the units based on the installed capacity. This is a recurring annual charge per Refrigeration Ton (RT) per annum, billed and paid monthly.
For example, the yearly demand charge can be calculated as follows: 2.7 RT (The RT load of the a/c of your unit) * 550 = 1485 AED per Year.
Monthly Demand Charge: 1485/12 = 124 AED per month
Consumption Charge for cooling:
The consumption charge is the charge applied for each kwh of cooling measured by the BTU meter(s) installed to your particular unit.According to meter reading, as and when you use the Cooling Service, the meter will run and this is charged at the consumption charge for that unit.
For example if the consumption charge is 25 Fils/kwh and there is a consumption recorded for 200 kWh on the BTU meter. Then the consumption charge would be 200 * 0.25 AED = 50 AED.
Fuel Surcharge for electricity
Fuel surcharge in your monthly electricity bill will vary based on the rate of the fuel surcharge that our suppliers are charging us. Fuel Surcharge will be shown separately in your monthly bill and will be charged by Fils/kWh for electricity.
