Going Net Zero: Harvesting the Power of the Sun

Singapore aims to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 under its Singapore Green Plan 2030. From installing solar panels on HDB rooftops and using LED lights in common areas, we will explore how CCK Town plays a part in this national movement towards more sustainable living in this new ‘Net Zero’ series. 

Win a Sembcorp Tengeh Floating Solar Farm Tour

Did you know one of the world’s largest inland floating solar farms is found in Tengeh Reservoir, located in CCK Town?

Spanning 45 hectares, the Sembcorp Tengeh Floating Solar Farm has some 122,000 solar photovoltaic (PV) panels.

The panels, spread across 10 islands, produce enough electricity to power some 16,000 four-room HDB flats for one year.

The electricity generated from the solar farm is sufficient to power Singapore’s five local water treatment plants, making us one of the few countries in the world to have a 100% green waterworks system.

Building a solar farm on water not only overcomes the issue of land scarcity in Singapore, but the evaporative cooling effect of water and higher wind speed also lead to higher energy yield than conventional rooftop systems.

The Sembcorp Tengeh Floating Solar Farm will contribute around 4% of Singapore’s target of reaching 1.5 gigawatt peak (GWp) solar energy capacity by 2025. Singapore aims to reach 2 GWp by 2030.

10 lucky residents will get a pair of tickets each for an exclusive tour of Sembcorp Tengeh Floating Solar Farm, specially brought to you by CCK Town Council & Sembcorp. 

The 1.5 – hour tour, starting at 9.30 am on 11 November, will give residents a rare chance to go behind the scenes and, weather permitting, hop on a boat ride to view the panels up close! 

To win, tell us how many blocks of flats in CCK Town have been installed with solar panels. (Psst, read on to find the answer!)

Harvesting the Power of the Sun

In the first of our ‘Net Zero’ series, we explore how the sun is put to work in CCK Town. 

To date, 250 HDB blocks in CCK Town have been outfitted with solar panels as part of the Town’s drive to transform into an eco-town. The target is to reach 282 blocks by 2025.

Did you know such a move has resulted in savings of approximately 23 million kg of CO2 emissions, which translates to some 23,000 return flights between Paris and New York?

These rooftop solar panels power common services, such as lifts, lights and water pumps. They allow the outfitted HDB blocks to achieve net-zero energy consumption in the common areas, meaning they use roughly the same amount of energy in their common areas as what they produce.

Any excess energy generated from these rooftop solar panels is channelled to the grid.

This conversion of unused rooftop space to harness the energy of the sun will go some ways in helping Singapore achieve its SG Green Plan target of reducing energy consumption in existing HDB towns by 15% by 2030.
