UAE's first solar-powered gas station opens in Dubai

UAE's first solar-powered gas station opens in Dubai

The $1.3 million project features more than 3000 solar panels to be installed on approximately three acres along Riverport Road. It is expected to generate enough power for about 120 homes. When completed, it will be the largest TVA-owned solar facility in TVA's seven-state service region. Combined with the five megawatts of biogas generation from the Allen plant, which is also under construction, the projects will produce enough renewable energy to power approximately 3,000 homes. TVA expects to invest about $8 billion to support its renewables portfolio over the next 20 years. It currently has more than 400 MWs of renewable solar power under contract from other entities.
