The solar panels has a capacity of 113 megawatt-peak (MWp) and will be installed in 1,075 HDB blocks covered by Aljunied-Hougang, Nee Soon and Sengkang Town Councils, as well as 104 government sites which will include 55 schools, 22 Ministry of Defence sites, and 14 heartland malls.

Jointly led by HDB and the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), the SolarNova programme aggregates public sector demand for the installation of solar panels across HDB blocks and government sites, thus helping to accelerate the deployment of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems in Singapore and drive the growth of Singapore’s solar industry.

The eighth SolarNova tender involves the participation of 10 agencies, namely the Ministry of Defence, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Home Affairs, Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore, Singapore Customs, HDB, National Environment Agency, and People’s Association.
