The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has launched a project to support 5,000 villas at Mohammed bin Rashid Housing Establishment (PSC) with photovoltaic solar systems, energy-saving lamps and free water supplies.
The project, which is being implemented and managed by the Union of Energy Services (IESCO), owned by DEWA, is scheduled to be completed by the end of December, according to Ali Al Jassim, CEO of Al Ittihad. The project is spread across nine regions in Dubai, denying the validity of what some people put forward, regarding the inclusion of projects from all villas.
Jassim explained that the project aims to support villas that benefit 65 thousand solar panels, 295 thousand energy saving light bulbs, in addition to 50 thousand water consumption providers, noting that the project was launched by the Commission.
He said that since the beginning of this year, the company has been working to identify villas that benefit from the project, and continue with the owners to allow the company to enter and install the device, and this began earlier this month.
He said that a large project, carried out by the Authority, would provide energy consumption in villas targeted at more than five million dirhams per year. This asks homeowners to participate in pilot initiatives to save energy and water and make Dubai one of the most sustainable cities in the world.
