Solar Brothers

Moataz and Mahmoud El Wardani have seen business at their fledgling start-up company soar since Dubai became the first city in the region to pass legislation allowing grid connected rooftop systems to be installed.

Moataz and Mahmoud El Wardani were ready to make their move as soon as Dubai passed legislation earlier this year allowing building owners and occupiers to install grid connected rooftop solar packages.

The Egyptian brothers, who were born and raised in the UAE, have wasted little time in building up a sizeable project pipeline of around 20MW for Shams Energy, the fledgling solar installation company they started a year ago.
