Solar power picking up pace 0

The use of solar power could be greatly encouraged by a resolution passed by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed.

Experts have welcomed a new ruling that will allow residents to install solar panels on the roofs of their homes and businesses and sell the energy generated back to the emirate’s power grid.

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, Crown Prince of Dubai and chairman of the Executive Council, passed the resolution on solar energy distribution in Dubai on Monday, which is hoped to greatly encourage the use of solar power across the emirate and the region.

The move will provide a “stable and reliable” framework with the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) that allows residents and businesses to “securely and reliably” generate solar power that can be fed into the electricity grid, said Vahid Fotuhi, president of the Middle East Solar Industry Association.
