Solar-power proposal for Dubai’s public toilets
13 Sep 2012

DUBAI // The municipality is aiming to make its public toilets solar-powered.

The idea is to save money and increase environmental awareness, said Juma Khalifa Al Fuqae, who as director of the general maintenance department is in charge of the project.

About 80 public toilets across Dubai run on electricity, including the fluorescent lights, exhaust fans and small water pumps. This power source will be replaced by solar power in the experimental toilets, Mr Al Fuqae said.
