Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to fork out any capital for the installation?
Sembcorp Solar bears all capital, operating and licensing costs for the solar installation. You are not required to bear any capital expenditure.
What is a power purchase agreement?
A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) is a contract that you sign with Sembcorp Solar for the development of the rooftop solar system which produces solar energy that will be sold to you at an agreed price.
How many years do I have to commit?
A typical PPA is a long-term agreement that lasts up to 25 years, depending on the shelf-life of the rooftop solar system. We are able to customise the duration to suit your business needs.
What permits or licences do I need to apply for?
Sembcorp Solar takes care of all permit and licence applications. You are not required to submit any applications.
With rooftop solar, do I still need power from the grid?
Yes, you will need power from the grid if your consumption load is higher than the amount of solar energy generated. For example, you will need power from your grid when your rooftop solar system is not generating power at night.
How do I coordinate the amount of power I need from the grid after installing rooftop solar?
The switchover to grid is seamless and does not require manual intervention. When the solar energy generated is insufficient to supply your load, power will be drawn from the grid to supplement it.
Who owns the rooftop solar system?
Sembcorp Solar owns, operates and maintains the rooftop solar system and sells the solar power to you via the PPA. If you wish to own the rooftop solar system, we can customise an arrangement to suit your needs.
Who will be responsible for operating and maintaining the rooftop solar system?
Sembcorp Solar will be responsible for operating and maintaining the system to maximise its performance for you. This includes cleaning, checking and troubleshooting.
How do I know the amount of solar energy produced by my rooftop solar system?
Sembcorp Solar will meter, track and report the solar energy produced by your system periodically.
What if the rooftop solar system fails to produce sufficient solar energy?
Sembcorp Solar guarantees a minimum level of energy according to the rooftop solar system size. You will be compensated if the system fails to deliver the guaranteed minimum level.
Do I need to make modifications to my roof?
Modifications are not required in most cases unless otherwise ascertained. When you get in touch with us for a quote, our solar professionals will conduct an assessment for you.
Will the solar energy facility cause damage to my roof?
It is a highly unlikely scenario. Nonetheless, both parties will be protected by our respective insurance required by the PPA.
How do I know that my roof is suitable for rooftop solar?
Concrete and metal roofs with sizable unused space are likely to be suitable for rooftop solar. When you get in touch with us for a quote, our solar professionals will assist you with this assessment.
What happens if I move on from my current location?
The preferred option is to novate the Power Purchase Agreement PPA to the next owner/occupant.
How do I know that the installation will be conducted safely?
Sembcorp Solar takes pride in its focus on safety and quality. We have been recognised with BizSafe Partner and ISO45001:2018 certifications.
