Abu Dhabi’s Green City

Abu Dhabi’s new green city is good news.
Up until now, quite understandably from an economic standpoint, there’s been little use of green energy in the UAE (to the best of my knowledge), but things change quickly and big investments are now being made.
I was once told by someone who knew someone, who knew someone, who knew the supposedly eccentric English owner of a shop in Dubai selling solar power equipment, that the best customers were Afghans working in the more remote areas of the UAE on farms and suchlike. Needs must and decades of hard times had meant that these particular customers knew how to live off the land better than anyone else.
My father recently installed solar panels too, beating Abu Dhabi to the green punch.
