DEWA unveils web app for solar energy panels
The ‘Shams Dubai Calculator’ is designed to allow DEWA customers produce solar power energy
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) is enabling residents to decide whether to install photovoltaic panels on their rooftops through a web application.
The web application, dubbed the ‘Shams Dubai Calculator', allows DEWA customers to produce solar power energy under the Shams Dubai initiative.
DEWA customers can use their account customers to identify their building's locations and rooftops through an interactive map, measure the usable area, number of panels, and their total capacity on a monthly or annual basis. The tools will allow customers to map out specific areas without the need to calculate the whole rooftop usable area.
Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA, said that the app aims to encourage customers to install solar panels in order to generate clean electricity, save money through low electricity bills, and increase the value of their property.
"This contributes to reducing carbon emissions and preserving the environment through clean energy production. It will also support Dubai's economy, and ensure a sustainable future for the emirate," he concluded.
