Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) in Dubai has announced that they have recently completed the installation of solar panels on the rooftop of Al Qusais Car Parking Terminal. The move was made in co-ordination with Shams Dubai smart initiative of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA).

Abdul Mohsin Ibrahim Younes, CEO of RTA’s Rail Agency said that RTA has allocated the space needed for the project at the Green Line of the Dubai Metro. This steps up the efforts of various government entities in contributing to Dubai Plan 2021, with one of the objectives being ‘A Smart & Sustainable City’.

“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,” Younes added.

He continued: “This step is a part of the 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.”
