10% of Dubai homes to get free access to solar power


Around 10 per cent of Emirati homes in Dubai will start generating their own electricity by the end of this year.

Solar panels, as well as energy-saving lights and equipment, will be installed in the houses for free, with DEWA bearing all the expenses.

The initiative is part of Dubai’s 50-year charter announced earlier this year, to improve all aspects of life in the emirate.

DEWA has awarded the project to six contractors who will start work immediately.
