Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) launched a new service that enables EV (Electric Vehicle) Green Charger customers to charge their electric vehicles using Dewa’s smart app, by scanning a QR code, which has been placed at 240 charging stations. In addition to this service, EV Green charger customers can continue to use their Green Charger cards at Dewa charging stations.
To further support electric vehicle adoption, Dewa is providing free charging for non-commercial EV customers registered in the EV Green Charger Initiative until December 31, 2021. This incentive is exclusively available at public charging stations and not home charging stations. Commercial registered customers, governmental and semi-governmental organisations pay 29 fils for every kilowatt-hour.
This step is part of Dewa's efforts to enhance its smart services with the latest international technologies, through Dewa’s website and app, for the comfort of customers to complete their transactions anytime and anywhere, easily and safely.
