In the commercial sector, prices for the 1-6,000 KW/h category will be SAR 0.20 per KW/h and SAR 0.30 for consumption above 6,000 KW/h.

Agricultural, non-profit, and charitable organizations pay SAR 0.16 per KW/h for 1-6,000 KW/h of consumption per month, and SAR 0.20 for consumption above 6,000 KW/h.

Private healthcare providers, private schools and education institutes will have prices of SAR 0.21 per KW/h.
