Will Sending Your Alkahraba Acct Number to 500120 Will Lower Your Electric Bill?
One of my colleagues told me that there are rumours that sending your acct number to 500120 will lower your electric consumption. Well that is a big FAKE News, in the Twitter post posted by @ALKAHRABA
لا صحة للرسالة المتداولة عن إرسال رقم المشترك للرقم 500120 لتصحيح فاتورة الكهرباء، والخدمة هي للتسجيل في خدمة الفواتير فقط. pic.twitter.com/EjcBVXD9o3

For those English speaking readers, it says that 500120 is only for billing amount purpose. In fact, we have tried doing it and it will only send your due amount. for the month. The increase of Electric Bill is due to the change of tariff that has to take into effect. The best thing to do to lower the electric consumption is to make due diligence is using the electric appliances.
You can see the New Tariff in this website – https://www.se.com.sa/en-us/customers/Pages/TariffRates.aspx
Residential and Commercial Tariff has only a slight difference of .02 Halala in the first 6000 KWH.
I hope this mini-post will clarify those who are looking for the truth about 500120
