Dubai: The Emirates National Oil Company (Enoc) recently opened five new service stations in Dubai, expanding its network to 122 stations in the UAE.

The group is on track to increase its fuel retail presence by 40 per cent by 2020, the company said in a statement.

Two of the newly built solar powered service stations are located on the Dubai-Al Ain Road, while the others are in Hatta, Oud Al Muteena and City of Arabia, thereby serving newly established residential communities and remote locations.

All five service stations are built in compliance with the new Dubai Municipality Green Build regulations.

The excess power generated from the solar PV panels is transmitted to the main grid of the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa).
