Commissioning of Solar Panels for Tampines
Tampines currently has the largest aggregated solar project for a Town Council in Singapore!
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.
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.
