Sunseap to supply Facebook's Singapore operations with solar energy

The energy will come from Sunseap’s offshore floating solar farms.

Sunseap Group has signed a multi-year virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) with Facebook for solar energy from one of the world’s largest offshore floating solar farms in the Straits of Johor.

The energy from the five MWp offshore floating photovoltaic system will be exported to the national grid. Under the VPPA, all renewable energy credits (RECs) from the project will be transferred to Facebook and will support the tech company's operations in Singapore, including Facebook's first custom-built data centre in Asia.

The solar farms in the Johor Straits have over 13,000 panels, 40 inverters, and more than 30,000 floats. It is expected to produce an estimated 6,022,500 kilowatt hours (kWh) of energy per year, with a potential for offsetting 4,258 tons of carbon dioxide.
