Commissioning of Solar Panels for Tampines

Commissioning of Solar Panels for Tampines

Tampines currently has the largest aggregated solar project for a Town Council in Singapore!

I am happy that Tampines has been chosen as one of the towns to test out the pilot project for the installation of solar panels for public housing. Solar power currently accounts for about 1.5 percent of Singapore’s total electricity consumption. That is equivalent to the power needs of about 26,000 four-room flats.
— Mr Masagos Zulkifli 

He added that Singapore aims to generate 5 percent of our energy needs through solar power by 2020. Apart from using solar panels on our blocks, we are also exploring other options such as installing solar panels on our reservoirs, to try to overcome our size limitation.

We have solar panels installed on a total of 157 blocks of flats in Tampines, and that is part of our efforts at managing our utility costs, while diversifying Singapore’s energy sources at the same time. I want to thank our residents for putting up with the inconveniences during the installation
— Mr Baey Yam Keng

Mr Baey also thanked the HDB for their assistance and support, and expressed the hope to bring solar power to the rest of Tampines, if the blocks are able to support them structurally and if space permits. About two thirds or 67% of the power will go to lighting, followed by 21% for the lifts, and 12% for the water pumps.
