Dubai Airports partners DEWA to erect solar array.

Dubai: Dubai Airports said it has partnered with the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) to erect a solar array at Al Maktoum International at Dubai World Central (DWC).

The array, which is located on the roof of the building, has a capacity of 30 kilowatts and generates about 48.8 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity per year, equal to about two-thirds of the power used by the building, it said in a statement.

By tapping the sun's energy, the 100-panel solar array aims to limit the power.
