Solar City: The Surprising Places You Will Find Solar Panels in Singapore
Singapore is now one of the most solar-dense cities in the world. Where are all these panels? They are on schools, petrol stations and even Supertrees.
Singapore’s solar capacity has grown from around 60 megawatt-peak (MWp) to over 630 MWp today. Under the Singapore Green Plan, the aim is to increase the solar energy deployment here to at least two gigawatt-peak by 2030, equivalent to powering around 350,000 households a year.
In the Central Business District, the Ocean Financial Centre* has one of the largest solar PV system for a high-rise commercial building in the area. This covers more than 400 sq m of roof space.
