Manama, May 9, 2013
Bahrain’s Electricity and Water Authority (eWA) collected BD168 million ($443 million) in monthly payment of electricity and water bills last year, compared to BD123 million in 2011, its chief executive said.
The average per capita consumption of water in Bahrain is high, at 440 litres per day, added Shaikh Nawaf bin Ibrahim Al Khalifa.
Regarding electricity and water bills arrears, he said the issue cannot be solved overnight, urging consumers to pay their bills on time as this will help the authority provide them with the best services.
The authority installs 8,000 electronic meters per year which will gradually replace manual meters, our sister paper Akhbar Al Khaleej quoted him as saying. – TradeArabia News Service
