DUBAI, March 17, 2019

Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) said it has completed the installation of solar panels on the rooftop of Al-Qusais car parking terminal, on the Green Line of Dubai Metro.

The move was made in co-ordination with the Shams Dubai smart initiative of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa).

On the new project, Abdul Mohsin Ibrahim Younes, CEO of RTA’s Rail Agency, said: “RTA has recently installed solar panels on the rooftops of Al Qusais parking terminal on the Green Line of the Dubai Metro."

"It has also allocated the space needed for this project; which steps up the efforts of various government entities in contributing to Dubai Plan 2021 with one of the objectives being ‘A Smart & Sustainable City," stated Younes.

"The 10 kW photovoltaic panels have been installed and the project has started the efficient generation of power, which will cut the building’s consumption of electricity. The step is part of endeavours of the Rail Agency to support Dubai sustainable development strategy by using alternative and clean energy to drive the Green Economy concept - a top priority of RTA,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
