Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Yellow Door Energy, a Dubai-based sustainable energy provider for businesses, has commissioned a 869 kilowatt-peak (kWp) rooftop solar plant for Le Chocolat and Greenhouse Foodstuff Trading, part of BPC Holding Group. The project is a successful example of a solar lease, which enables businesses to switch to clean energy without any upfront capital investment, while significantly reducing energy costs.

Located in Dubai Investments Park (DIP), the rooftop solar plant will generate 1,380 megawatt-hours of clean energy in its first year of operation, equivalent to reducing 600 tonnes of carbon emissions per year. It will supply over 30% of the facility’s annual electricity consumption and substantially lower electricity costs.

Adel Ayass, General Manager of BPC Holding Group, commented: “Our facility in DIP crafts premium chocolates and provides foodservices for many customers in the UAE and beyond. To be the leader, we have to remain competitive, innovative and differentiated. The solar lease with Yellow Door Energy enables us to reduce our costs and achieve our sustainability targets. We can now also proudly share that our facility is running on solar power, which differentiates us from the competition.”

Jeremy Crane, CEO and Co-Founder of Yellow Door Energy, commented: “We are pleased to support BPC Holding Group in its cost reduction and sustainability goals. We hope businesses in Dubai Investments Park will consider solar, and in particular solar leasing, as a cost-effective and clean source of electricity for their operations. As a Dubai-based solar developer, Yellow Door Energy is honored to contribute to the Shams Dubai Program and the UAE Energy Strategy 2050.”

As the solar lease provider, Yellow Door Energy is responsible for investing in, designing, building, commissioning, operating and maintaining the solar plant for the duration of the lease. Solar leasing is gaining popularity among industrial building owners who want to reduce energy costs without any upfront investment or operational risk, while maintaining focus on their core business and enjoying the benefits of clean energy.
