Generating utility-scale solar
energy from ground-mounted arrays
A utility-scale solar farm generates large amounts of solar energy equivalent to a full-scale power utility. The solar energy generated is supplied to the local electricity grid operator and an offtaker can enjoy a steady source of renewable energy through a long term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).
How off-site PPA works:
An off-site PPA is a contract associated with the virtual supply of renewable energy generated from a utility-scale solar project, which is connected to the transmission network of Singapore’s electricity system.
With solar energy harnessed from Sembcorp’s utility-scale solar project, an off-site PPA arrangement is suitable for businesses with massive green energy requirements.
Solar Land 3
Following the successful roll out of the first two phases at Jurong Island and Changi Business Park, JTC issued a tender for the third phase of its SolarLand programme in February 2020. SolarLand Phase 3 maximises the use of over 506,000 sqm of temporary vacant land all across Singapore. Its system is made modular and flexible by using mobile PV panels and hybrid SPPG substations which can be redeployed when the land is needed for other uses.
The SolarLand program aims to overcome space constraints and high capital costs while at the same time, reduce the carbon footprint and optimise the use of industrial land to contribute clean energy to Singapore.
Sembcorp Solar is one of the operators appointed for the third installment of the SolarLand programme.
Location: Tuas, Singapore
- Total Installed size: ~18MWp
- Completion date: Q3 2021
The Solar PV system of 18MWp will help avoid 9,150 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions per year, which equates to:
Powering up to
HDB Flats per year
Taking 3,600 cars
off the road per year
rain trees annually
