Rooftop solar solutions company CleanMax Solar has installed a 1,200 kWp rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant for Dubai-based Danube Group.
CleanMax Solar's plant, installed across four buildings at regional building material supplier Danube Group's manufacturing facility in Dubai TechnoPark, would save the company 300,000 UAE dirhams annually in electricity bills, CleanMax said in a statement.
The project implemented under Dubai Electricity and Water Authority's (DEWA) Shams Dubai initiative uses the Build, Own and Operate (BOO) model, enabling CleanMax Solar to own and operate the plant while Danube would pay for the solar power as and when it is generated, the statement said.
Shams Dubai has connected a total of 102.1 megawatts (MW) of rooftop solar capacity to the DEWA grid, according to a DEWA statement last week.
The rooftop plant will help Danube to reduce carbon emissions by 845 tonnes per annum, equivalent to the greenhouse gases emitted by more than 163 passenger vehicles driven for an entire year, the statement added.
