SirajPower, a UAE-based distributed solar energy provider, has announced two new residential partnerships in Dubai. The company inked a deal with Al-Khail Heights (by Texture Holding) and Green Coast Real Estate — Mirdif Villa Complex, which will result in a total 3MWp system capacity, and generate 5GWh of annual energy production, whilst displacing more than 3,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emission per annum, corresponding to approximately 450 million smartphones being charged.
Laurent Longuet, CEO of SirajPower, said: “Today, the way we live has been disrupted because of the novel coronavirus. It has raised further awareness of our lifestyle and the impact it has on our environment. Before the outbreak, there was already a strong push to make sustainability a way of life in the UAE and the region. As a company, we are proud to be part of a local family business that has always played an important role to help the community and that has been able to support the development of the long-term green vision of our leadership.”
The partnership is SirajPower’s second important project in the residential sector this year and follows the success of its award-winning project with DP World to provide solar energy to JAFZA staff accommodation completed earlier this year.
To implement such a project, the company benefited from its key market differentiator, a fully integrated leasing model which eases energy expenses and can help mitigate the economic impact of the current crisis. SirajPower provides the design, construction, installation, commissioning, operation, maintenance, and financing that allow businesses to work with a single point of contact throughout the whole journey of their energy ambitions.
Longuet added: “With the successful implementation of this project, we proved that a fully financed solar model is now becoming a reality in Dubai and the Middle East.”
Mansoor Nabil A. G. Hussain, CEO of Green Coast Real Estate, said: “SirajPower’s unique and innovative leasing model is a game-changer and we believe that their services will further contribute to the development of the local and regional solar market.”
Zubair Patni, director of Al-Khail Heights LLC, said: “In Dubai, the leadership has put in place an integrated energy strategy that aims to achieve a 30 percent reduction in energy and water usage across the built environment by 2030. This is important for property owners and occupiers as it will result in tangible saving benefits. We have selected SirajPower as our green partner of choice for the proven added value they’ve provided to other businesses. We proudly embark with them and the guidance of our wise leadership in their path to support the long-term Green Economy for Sustainable Development initiative.”
