The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) will soon allow residents and businesses rooftop solar panels to generate their own electricity.

“We already finished the first study about the technical specifications, we are now in the implementation stage and we have to have a consultant specialising in this field,” Saeed Al Tayer, CEO and managing director of Dewa was quoted as saying.

With the launch of the first phase of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, Dubai has proved that it is developing into an environmentally mature city and is serious about diversifying its energy supply. It is hoped that the solar park, which went live last year, will have an output capacity of 1000MW by 2030.
