Abu Dhabi To Have Cheapest Solar Power Ever — 1.35 Cents Per Kilowatt-Hour

The UAE’s other major city, Dubai, set the low-solar-PV-price record in January 2015 at what was then a shocking 5.98¢/kWh, then did so again in 2016 at 2.99¢/kWh. Dubai also set a low-price record for concentrated solar power (CSP), at just 7.3¢/kWh. The new low-PV bid chosen by Abu Dhabi’s public electric utility will bring down the cost of solar power to just 1.35¢/kWh.
