The solar panels on the roofing systems of the sites of Emirates Glass and Lumiglass Industries will create some 2,800 MWh of green electrical power and save about 1,200 tonnes of carbon emissions every year which amounts to planting some 30,000 trees, Dubai Investments claimed on Tuesday.

Concerning 3,000 panels with an integrated capacity of 1.20 MWp will be released on the roof coverings of the Emirates Glass centers to cover around 19% of its power usage. The installment on the Lumiglass Industries facility was completed previously this year and has a capacity of 0.55 MWp. With greater than 1,400 panels, the smaller system will produce more than 800 MWh each year which will suffice to cover 18% of the power intake of the site.

"The roof solar panel installation at both Emirates Glass as well as Lumiglass facilities is an extension of the sustainable efforts as well as is focused on reducing the reliance on grid-energy too energy costs," stated Executive President of Emirates Glass LLC as well as Lumiglass Industries.

In October, the United Arab Emirates ended up being the first country in the Middle East and also North Africa to reveal a tactical campaign for net-zero discharges by 2050.
