Fewa to fit Aircosaver AC, LED lighting units in 100 Emirati homes
Free-of-charge installations to be carried out as part of Fewa's 'Your Home Our Care' campaign to promote awareness
The UAE’s Federal Electricity and Water Authority (Fewa) will install Aircosaver air-conditioning control devices and replace existing lighting systems with LED units in nearly 100 Emirati homes for free as Phase 2 of its ‘Your Home Our Care’ project to promote conscious consumption of energy resources among UAE nationals.
According to a statement by Fewa, training courses have also been organised for more than 45 engineers who have been working on the second phase of the project.
The Aircosaver units are expected to cut energy consumption by 20-30%.
Commenting on the project, director general of Fewa, Mohammed Mohammed Saleh said: “Our goal from this project is to spread a culture of sustainability and mould a generation that believes the rationalisation of consumption goes beyond making financial profits; a generation that views these measures as necessary for the future of mankind and essential for facing global challenges such as global warming and the approaching depletion of fossil fuel reserves.”
Fewa launched the ‘Your Home Our Care’ campaign in 2017 with the objective of promoting a culture of saving energy and water by reducing consumption within Emirati homes.
