UAE-based SirajPower has announced its PV project portfolio under net metering in Dubai has reached 50 MW.
The company said in a press release it has secured a 15 year leasing scheme under which it will install, finance and operate a 1.8 MW PV system on two warehouses of global fashion and lifestyle retail conglomerate Apparel Group in Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZA). The system is set to cover around 50% of the energy consumption of the two facilities, the company said.
SirajPower has so far secured contracts with a combined capacity of 50 MW under Dubai’s net metering scheme, the so-called DEWA’s Shams Dubai initiative. Of this, it has deployed 16 plants totaling 30 MW to date. “The company has already inked three agreements in 2018 including Al Abbar Aluminium, Landmark Group, Apparel Group and is expected to bring on-board other prominent UAE business soon,” SirajPower said in its statement.
In mid-August, the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) reported that, at the time, requests to access the Emirate’s net-metering scheme for residential and commercial PV had reached a combined capacity of 323 MW. The authority further revealed that the current installed PV capacity under the mechanism had reached 49.9 MW.
