March 25, 2019 | By RetailME Bureau

Middle Eastern retailer, Kamal Osman Jamjoom (KOJ) Group has installed a solar plant, commissioned by solar developer Yellow Door Energy. The solar plant, situated in in Dubai Investments Park (DIP), will generate 7,100 megawatt hours of clean energy in the 20-year lease duration, equivalent to reducing 3,100 metric tons of carbon emissions or removing 680 vehicles from the road.

“As a retailer with nearly 700 stores in seven countries, we are always looking for creative ways to reduce both our operational costs and environmental footprint. Solar leasing helps us achieve both objectives. Yellow Door Energy came to the table with a solution that is economically and environmentally attractive, and we welcome the commissioning of the solar plant at our DIP facility,” said Hisham Al Amoudi, CEO of KOJ Group.

“We are proud to support KOJ in their forward-thinking solar initiative. The KOJ solar plant is our fifth commissioned solar project in Dubai, made possible with support from the DEWA Shams Dubai programme. As a Dubai-based solar developer, we are proud to do our part to contribute to the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy and the UAE Energy Strategy 2050,” added Jeremy Crane, CEO and co-Founder of Yellow Door Energy.
