Shams Dubai

smart initiative connecting pv solar to the utility grid for bill reduction

The leading initiative, Shams Dubai encouraged by the vision of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to make Dubai the smartest city in the world.

It also supports building a sustainable future for the Emirate by promoting the use of renewable and clean energy sources. Launching the initiative implements council resolution number 46 of 2014 that regulates the connection of solar power to DEWA's energy grid.

Shams Dubai supports household and building owners to install PV Solar panels to generate electricity and connect them to DEWA’s grid. The energy is used on site and the excess is sold into Dubai's network.

How Shams works

In brief, DEWA buys surplus energy from your PV Solar Energy System installed on your home. Each billing cycle you are charged with the net amount and that could be 0 AED. Thus, your Solar Energy System eliminates cost from using public utility grid energy from the DEWA.

For large load industrial facilities such as Factories, Production facilities, etc., demand electricity charges during Summer peak hours can significantly increase Commercial electrical bills. In Emirates, the Peak hours are between 10 am to 10 pm from 1 June to 30 September.

However, PV Solar Energy System connected to DEWA utility grid under Shams program allows the monthly consumption to be below 10,000 kW / month threshold so your do not fall into peak tariffs.

Estimated savings can be up to 75-90% of energy consumption, or thousands Dirhams every year.
