Although Dubai Electricity and Water Authority's (Dewa) grid is majorly powered by natural gas, not petrochemicals, the oil industry affects all spheres of life and it is important to think long term.

Dewa had 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.

The contract had been awarded by Etihad Esco, a unit of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa).

Sharaf DG Energy said it had 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, said the company in a statement.

Dewa had earlier launched a project to install solar PV panels on the homes of UAE nationals in Dubai. It had entrusted Etihad Esco to oversee the project.

Sharaf DG Energy said over 6,500 solar PV panels had been installed as part of the project. Each villa will now produce 6,220 kilowatt-hours of electricity in one year, equivalent to CO2 emissions from consuming 1880 litres of gasoline or growing 70 trees for 10 years.
