More than 400,000 residential customers have enrolled in Dubai’s ‘My Sustainable Living Programme’.
The initiative, which was launched by the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) in October 2018, aims to encourage residents to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle.
It will also provide customers with an integrated conservation plan that will allow them to significantly reduce their water, electricity consumption and carbon footprint.
“We work in line with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to achieve sustainable development in all aspects, and the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, to make Dubai the city with the lowest carbon footprint in the world by 2050. We strive to enhance consumer behaviour, in line with the Demand Side Management Strategy to reduce the demand for electricity and water by 30% in 2030,” said H.E. Saeed Mohammed Ahmed Al Tayer, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of DEWA.
Customers can use the many benefits and technical features offered by logging in to their DEWA accounts on the website or smart app.
They must then update their consumption patterns in order to utilize a specially prepared conservation plan and compare their households with similar highly efficient homes in the same area.
