Singapore turns on another large-scale solar roof installation

Over 7,000 PV panels will generate 3.5GW hours of energy enough to power 1,000 three-bedroom HDB flats for a year.

Personal care firm Kimberly-Clark Corporation has installed rooftop panels for its Tuas manufacturing facility in one of Singapore’s largest solar energy installations to date, an announcement revealed.

A total of 7,730 photovoltaic panels mounted on its roof will generate 3.5GW hours of clean energy, which will be enough to power up 1,000 three-bedroom Housing and Development Board (HDB) flats for a year.

With this investment, renewable energy will reportedly replace 15% of conventional energy use at the plant, reducing Green House Gas emissions (GHGs) by approximately 1,600 metric tonnes per year. This is equivalent to removing nearly 350 passenger cars from roads annually. 

The solar roof panels were installed in partnership with Singapore-based solar energy provider Sunseap, which has developed many grid-connected PV systems in Singapore.
