Dubai is in preparation to organize the installation of solar panels at homes and businesses to produce their own energy and electricity. Solar panels at the rooftop of some villas in Dubai will follow once new energy rules released.
The regulations are considering offering financial incentives for switch to solar energy to the users. Depending on the size, batteries and inverters, the household solar panel power systems can cost approximately Dh20, 000-Dh40, 000. It is beneficial in reducing power charges by an estimate of 20-30%.
Some users noted that the current price of using solar power and lack of guidelines hindered other people from trying or switching to solar power but more people will be fascinated once the value is laid out. Generally, people use the solar power only for environmental cause since solar power is clean. There will be a momentous increase in the demand for solar power once the incentives and legislation become clear.
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) is firming up on the regulation of solar power, for its future energy supply mix of renewable energy. DEWA’s solar rooftop program is part of energy sustainability strategy for Dubai with an objective to encourage home owners and the business owners and those with access to industrial warehouses to be more independent with their energy needs. The new regulations will open the possibility to install solar Photovoltaic systems on the roofs and save from energy bills.
As of the moment, the financial incentive proposal is not yet in place. The enthusiasts of solar energy are requested to wait a few months until the program is launched officially in order for them to benefit from energy sustainability and profits.
