Solar energy remains the most promising renewable energy source for Singapore when it comes to electricity generation. With an average annual solar irradiance of 1,580 kWh/m2/year and about 50 percent more solar radiation than temperate countries, solar photovoltaic (PV) generation has the greatest potential for wider deployment in Singapore.
Singapore aims to deploy at least 2-gigawatt peak (GWp) of solar energy by 2030. This is equivalent to powering about 350,000 households for a year.
Solar panels are mainly composed of many individual solar cells connected in a circuit. These solar cells collect photons (sun energy) from sunlight and generate flowing electrons or what we call electricity.
Solar PV system integration takes 3-6 months depending on the size of the roof and the system. Union Solar will take measures to ensure timely project delivery.
