Nestlé Pure Life, along with Yellow Door Energy, has commissioned a solar power plant at its facility in Dubai. The new system will produce 2,400 megawatt-hours of renewable electricity and reduce carbon emissions by one million kilograms per year.
More than 2,500 solar panels have been installed on a carport structure of Nestlé Pure Life, a leading bottled water brand in the region, to meet 80% of the energy consumption at its production facilities.
The carport structure provides shading for 72 Nestlé Waters distribution trucks and the solar panels installed over it will be cleaned using robots.
As the solar lease provider, Yellow Door Energy is responsible for financing, designing, building, commissioning, and operating the solar plant during the lease term. The Dubai-based company, established in 2015, has previously worked on two projects with Nestlé.
The solar lease brings Nestlé Waters closer to its commitment to power all its facilities with renewable electricity by 2025.
With an annual average of 9.6 hours of sunshine per day, Dubai is a prime location for solar energy investments from around the world. The city aims to generate 25% of its total power output from clean energy by 2030.
