The construction of rooftop solar panels at Kings’ School Al Barsha has been successfully completed by SirajPower. In line with Dubai’s Clean Energy Strategy and the nation’s sustainability goals to increase Dubai’s energy mix to 75% clean and renewable by 2050, the solar project is expected to eliminate approximately 1.924 metric tons of carbon dioxide (Co2) annually, or the equivalent of charging 234,066,133 smartphones.
In the UAE, education has been highlighted as one of the government’s key priorities, with Kings’ School Al Barsha looking to empower its students and raise sustainability awareness in the UAE. A record-breaking 4,921 solar panels with a capacity of 1.9MWp were installed at the school in an astounding four months, well ahead of schedule.
This project will displace approximately 1.924 metric tons of carbon dioxide (Co2) emissions per annum
During the 20-year agreement, SirajPower will manage the ongoing performance, maintenance, and cleaning of the solar energy system, allowing Kings’ School Al Barsha to be worry-free, benefit from green credentials, and deliver a real-life educational experience to its students. By generating its own clean and renewable energy, the school will maintain greater energy independence and combat climate change.
“Being green is more than just a marketing gimmick; it’s a way of life”
“Being green is more than just a marketing gimmick; it’s a way of life that encourages our students to consider how they may enhance their communities. Being green at Kings’ School Al Barsha means that we make intentional and innovative efforts to reduce our environmental imprint and use resources as efficiently as possible to inspire future generations. This is why we are delighted to be collaborating with SirajPower to use solar energy to power our facilities,” added Akshay Khanna, Director of Kings’ Corporate.
