to the website of the first grid-connected photovoltaic system of Singapore
On March 24, 2006 the first grid-connected system of Singapore was inaugurated in line with a celebratory opening ceremony under attendance of numerous national and foreign VIPs. Crowned through a student featured supporting programme, this grid-connected system, on the roof of the german-european school, started operating.
With a peak capacity of 14.48 kWp
and an estimated annual yield of 19,000 kWh
, the solar system will serve as a flagship initiative for the sunshine-rich region south-east-asia.
“Singapore is an important stepping stone for innovative technologys and market developments” is what Olaf Fleck, managing director of SUNSET Solar Energietechnik.
said. “With our solar roof we will show the potential user in the region, what solar energy made in Germany can achieve”.
Singapore is on the way to the solar age. The solar roof is another big move to it.
This system has arisen as joint-venture of SUNSET Solar Energietechnik
with the Deutschen Energie-Agentur GmbH (dena)
in line with the solar roof program for the foreign market development.
