Customers & Residents


Now you can support & be part of Dubai vision for a smart & sustainable city. As a customer, you will be the producer of clean electricity produced from the solar system installed in your premises.

The UAE Energy Plan 2050 aims to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 70%, increase clean energy use by 50% & improve energy efficiency by 40% by the middle of the century, resulting in savings worth Dh700 billion.

The policy’s targets for the source of energy for local consumption by 2050 have been set at 44% from renewable energy, 38% from gas, 12% from clean fossil & 6% from nuclear energy. Now, more than 90% of UAE’s energy needs are met by natural gas.

Connection Process

The connection procedure consists of four different stages:

Stage A:No Objection Certificate (NOC)

Stage B:Design Approval

Stage C:Inspection and Connection

Stage D:Generation
