ME’s first such facility to be built inside conventional power plant

Marc Norman, Marketing & Communications Director, Emirates Solar Industry Association (ESIA), in a communiqué has shared the information that ESIA and the Dubai Electricity and Water Company (DEWA) have completed the first solar power facility to be built inside an existing conventional power plant in the Middle East. The 10kW rooftop system has been installed within DEWA’s main power generation complex in Jebel Ali, the communiqué added.

“This pilot project marks an important step towards the development of solar power in the UAE, and particularly solar rooftop, which many view as the most promising way to foster a viable solar power market”, Norman explained.
