With the current COVID19 pandemic affecting businesses and consumers across the globe, it is now more important than ever to protect from utility tariff increases and the volatility of oil, the company stated.

Although DEWA’s grid is majorly powered by natural gas, not petrochemicals, the Petroleum Industry affects all spheres of life and it is important to think long term.

DEWA launched a project to install solar PV panels on the homes of UAE nationals in Dubai. DEWA entrusted Etihad ESCO to oversee the project, including Sharaf DG Energy, 500 villas each in Dubai.

Sharaf DG Energy it executed the project from mechanical erection, to the completion and energisation in just 45 days. Around 12 teams were deployed that worked on around eight villas per day and successfully completed the installations within the stipulated time period.

More than 6,500 solar PV panels were installed. Each villa will produce 6,220 kilowatt-hours of electricity in one year – this is equivalent to CO2 emissions from consuming 1880 litres of gasoline or growing 70 trees for 10 years.

“We want to empower communities to achieve higher levels of sustainability,” said vice-president, Sanjay Dabur. “This was an important project for us to complete, not only to show our commitment to the growth of sustainable energy in the UAE, but to prove that we will always deliver on any promises we make.”

“By completing this project and installing the solar panels, Sharaf DG Energy enabled each homeowner to not only become an independent clean energy producer, but also a part of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s great vision for clean energy in Dubai,” he concluded.
