Our connection charges

On this page you will find a breakdown of our fees to connect new water and electricity supply points to the ADDC network. The rates shown apply to new builds and renovated properties only and do not apply to properties that have an existing physical connection to our network.

Connection fees for electricity

For an electrical connections up to 5,001 kW our fees are charged by the kW, and increase in increments based on the maximum load required by the customer:

1 - 100 kW                AED 50.00 / kW
101-500 kW              AED 150.00 / kW
501- 1,000 kW          AED 200.00 / kW
1,001- 5,000 kW       AED 250.00 / kW

The above rates are applied in progressive stages:


For a total requirement of 250 kW, the fee is applicable as follows:

100 kW @ AED 50.00      = AED 5,000
150 kW @ AED 150.00    = AED 22,500
Total fee                           = AED 27,500

For connections up to 5,000 kW, ADDC will provide the infrastructure required to connect to our network, which will be included in the above fees.

For connections over 5,001 kW the customer is responsible for providing the necessary infrastructure to connect to our network (transformer, sub station, etc.), so a lower rate for each kW applies.

5,001 kW and above                 AED  50.00 / kW


6,000 kW @ AED 50.00     = AED 300,000
Total fee                              = AED 300,000

Connection fees for water

The amount you’re required to pay for connecting your water supply depends on a number of factors, such as whether the meter is internal or external to the building, and who was responsible for installing the meter, the customer or ADDC.
