Dubai beauty retailer KOJ goes solar with Yellow Door Energy


Yellow Door Energy, a market-leading solar developer, has commis-sioned a solar plant for Kamal Osman Jamjoom Group (KOJ) in Dubai Investment­s Park (DIP).

The solar plant will generate 7,100 megawatt hours of clean energy in the 20-year lease duration, equivalent to reducing 3,100 metric tons of carbon emissions or removing 680 vehicles from the road.

Hisham Al Amoudi, CEO of KOJ, commented: “As a retailer with nearly 700 stores in seven countries, we are always looking for creative ways to reduce both our operationa­l costs and environmen­tal footprint. Solar leasing helps us achieve both objectives. Yellow Door Energy came to the table with a solution that is economical­ly and environmen­tally attractive, and we welcome the commission­ing of the solar plant at our DIP facility.”

Jeremy Crane, CEO and cofounder of Yellow Door Energy, added: “We are proud to support KOJ in their forward-thinking solar initiative. The KOJ solar plant is our fifth commission­ed solar project in Dubai, made possible with support from the DEWA Shams Dubai program. As a Dubai-based solar developer, we are proud to do our part to contribute to the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy and the UAE Energy Strategy 2050.”

As the solar lease provider, Yellow Door Energy invested in, designed, constructe­d, commission­ed and will operate and maintain the solar plant for the duration of the lease.
