Dubai res­i­dents aren’t in­ter­ested in in­vest­ing in so­lar en­ergy

7 Days in Dubai - - LETTERS -

“Although so­lar pan­els are meant to ab­sorb en­ergy from the sun, but they are not meant for ex­tremely hot weather con­di­tions like what we are fac­ing in Dubai. Also, the dust and sandy cli­mate re­quires con­stant clean­ing of the pan­els to avoid any dam­ages. Hence, although go­ing green should be in ev­ery­one’s plans, I don’t think us­ing so­lar pan­els would be cost friendly nor ad­vis­able in Dubai as they will have a much shorter life­span.”

“The big­gest part of do­mes­tic load in Dubai is for cool­ing. Un­less you have a very big so­lar in­stal­la­tion you won’t be able to use them for air­con­di­tion­ers.”

AD­NAN BUTT

“Set up costs maybe too ex­pen­sive. The U.K. Gov­ern­ment give dis­counts!!! Won­der if Dubai will.”
