The UAE’s largest ground-mounted private solar plant has commenced producing renewable energy at Nestlé Middle East’s Al Maha factory in Dubai.

The site at Al Maha will house 20,000 photovoltaic (PV) panels, generating 7.2GWh of electricity per year. That will supply 85% of the Al Maha factory’s annual electricity consumption and eliminate 4.5 million kilograms of CO2 per year.

In total, nearly 28,000 PV panels are being installed at the three manufacturing sites of Nestlé in Dubai. The systems will generate a total of 10GWh of electricity per year. This will eliminate at least six million kilograms of CO2 emissions annually, the equivalent of annual emissions from 1,500 passenger cars or the energy consumption of 800 homes.
