DEWA completes linking of solar rooftop plants in Dubai under a net metering scheme

The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has reportedly completed linking solar rooftop plants aggregating 17.7 MW on 450 residential and commercial buildings under the net metering scheme, which was launched in early 2015. The larger portion of this capacity has been installed over the past year. DEWA has also announced that it will install solar carports at its headquarters and at the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment building. PV systems totalling 1.7 MW will be installed in the parking lots at the two sites.
