Yellow Door Energy, a UAE-based sustainable energy provider for businesses, has been awarded a solar agreement with Hira Industries LLC, a leading manufacturer of building and construction products.
Rory McCarthy, Chief Commercial Officer of Yellow Door Energy, said, “We are proud to support Hira Industries sustainability endeavor through the development of this solar plant. This is our second project with the Hira Group, and our 40th solar agreement in our expanding solar portfolio. We encourage businesses in Dubai Investments Park to consider solar as a viable option to reduce electricity costs and switch to clean energy. As a UAE-based solar developer, Yellow Door Energy is honored to contribute to DEWA’s Shams Dubai Program and the UAE Energy Strategy 2050.”
Located in Dubai Investments Park (DIP), Hira Industries’ head office and warehouse will be equipped with 460 solar panels to generate 340,000 kilowatt-hours of clean energy, enough to meet 90% of the building’s energy consumption needs. This is equivalent to reducing carbon emission by 3,500 tonnes over the system lifetime, or removing almost 800 cars from the road.
Umesh Unni, General Manager of Hira Industries, said, “Sustainability is integral to our business strategy, and today we are proud to build a greener future with Yellow Door Energy. The solar agreement enables us to reduce electricity costs and lower carbon emissions, which makes us more cost competitive while maintaining our sustainability leadership.”
Yellow Door Energy is responsible for investing in, designing, building, commissioning, operating and maintaining the solar plant for the duration of the agreement. By working with solar developers, industrial building owners can reduce their energy costs without any upfront investment or operational risk, while maintaining focus on their core business and enjoying the benefits of clean energy.
