Landmark to generate 3.4 million KwH power through solar
UAE-conglomerate partners with SirajPower to lease solar panels for a 20-year period
SirajPower, the Dubai-based joint venture devoted to net metering and providing solar rooftops in the UAE, has partnered with Landmark Group for a new solar rooftop leasing deal.
Under this new partnership, SirajPower will carry out permitting, design, installation, commission and operation of Landmark Group’s new solar system over a period of 20 years.
SirajPower will deliver 2.1 MW of solar energy to Landmark’s Group warehouse facility located in Dubai South, and help the company generate in excess of 3.4 million KWH of clean energy annually, resulting in reduction of the group’s utility bills as well as its carbon footprint.
David Auriau, director at SirajPower said: “We are encouraged to see more UAE businesses recognising the importance and need to adopt renewable sources of energy, and especially solar power as it remains highest value in the region.
“SirajPower’s solar leasing model offer companies significant savings without the risk of investments and operations of solar plants.”
Vipen Sethi, group director, Landmark Group said: “The UAE public sector has been working hard on promoting clean energy and we are proud to partner with SirajPower to find sustainable energy solutions for Landmark.
“The National Agenda UAE Vision 2030 mandates sustainability as a key pillar for all organisations – public and private – to create a blueprint for the use of alternative energy.”
Since last year, SirajPower has continuously showcased its support of the Shams initiative, DEWA’s first smart initiative aiming to connect solar energy and support the diversification of the energy mix, through partnership with key UAE businesses such as RSA Global and Al Abbar Aluminium Energy.
