Water, electricity fees for farms to be reduced to support livestock

In a move to support animal production, Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa) has decided to reduce electricity and water consumption fees for farms starting from February.
“Farms will see a reduction in electricity and water consumption fees starting with the February 2020 bill in order to support animal production,” Kahramaa said in a statement.
The percentage of reduction in the new consumption fees for farms will reach 70 percent for electricity and 40 percent for water, given that these farms will no longer be classified in the commercial category.
The statement said this step comes within the framework of the national responsibility of Kahramaa as one of the leading institutions in the state to support animal production and encourage farm owners to invest in the field of livestock to enhance self-sufficiency and food security of Qatar in cooperation with the Ministry of Municipality and Environment.
Kahramaa has completed a project to deliver electricity and water to farms in various regions of the country to help enhance production capacity. (QNA)
