It's slated to generate 1.3m kWh a year.
Singapore’s Phoenix Solar Pte Ltd has been awarded a contract by IKEA Southeast Asia to design and build a 1 MWp solar system on the roof of IKEA Tampines. The system is expected to generate 1.3 million kilowatt hours per year – enough renewable energy to power the equivalent of 283 four-room HDB flats. IKEA expects to trim an estimated $2.4 million from the store’s electrical bills over the next ten years.
This project follows the successful 1 MWp solar rooftop system installation on top of the company’s Megabangna mall in Bangkok and is the start of additional collaborations already in the pipeline between IKEA Southeast Asia and Phoenix Solar.
Installation of the solar panels begins at IKEA Tampines in March and the project is expected to be completed in July.
