Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, DEWA, has launched a web application to help customers easily decide on the installation of photovoltaic, PV, panels on their rooftops to generate electricity from solar power.

Introduced under the ‘Shams Dubai’ initiative, the application, dubbed ‘Shams Dubai Calculator’, will provide detailed comparisons and additional information to help consumers conveniently and smoothly use the innovative tools. This is part of DEWA’s efforts to support its ‘Shams Dubai’ initiative, and in line with its keenness to engage the people of Dubai in reducing the Emirate's carbon footprint.

"At DEWA, we work according to the vision of our wise leadership, which is a roadmap that guides our work, initiatives and projects aimed at enhancing the competitiveness of the UAE, and Dubai. This contributes positively and effectively to achieving the Smart Dubai initiative, launched by Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum , to make Dubai the smartest and happiest city in the world and the Dubai Plan 2021, to establish Dubai as a sustainable city, whose environmental elements are clean, healthy and sustainable," said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Managing Director and CEO of DEWA.

Interested consumers can check the calculator on DEWA’s official website. DEWA also provides the information and conditions required for the installation of solar panels on the roofs of buildings, in addition to the names of contractors and consultants accredited for the installation of PV panels, through its website: www.dewa.gov.ae/shamscalc Al Tayer added that the ‘Shams Dubai Calculator’ is an innovative service designed by DEWA for customers who desire to produce electricity from solar power under the Shams Dubai initiative. By providing their account numbers only, customers can easily identify their building’s locations and rooftops through an interactive map. They can measure the usable area, number of panels, and their total capacity on a monthly or annual basis. Using innovative interactive tools, the customer can map out specific areas without the need to calculate the whole rooftop usable area.

Al Tayer also noted that the interactive map helps the customer obtain a lot of information; such as the green charger locations, and other Shams Dubai projects within the customer’s neighbourhood. Results can also be shared through social media channels.

"DEWA is keen to contribute to achieving Dubai’s leadership, in all areas, through the provision of quality and innovative services, which translates an integrated strategy, developed by DEWA, to apply the best solutions, future technologies and advanced global programmes. This adheres to our leadership’s approach in adopting creativity and innovation to provide the best smart services with high quality and efficiency, through the optimal use of modern technologies and appropriate placement, to achieve people’s happiness," Al Tayer noted.
