Week in ASEAN: Terrenus Energy Wins 70 MWp Solar Project From HDB, EDB; SPCG To Build Solar Farm Of 516 MW In Thailand and More


Terrenus Energy Wins 70 MWp Solar Project From HDB, EDB


Terrenus Energy Pte. Ltd. (Terrenus Energy) and Digo Corporation Pte. Ltd. (Digo Corporation) have been jointly awarded a 70 megawatt-peak (MWp) solar contract by the Housing Development Board (HDB) and Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB). This project is the sixth solar leasing tender under HDB’s SolarNova programme which will see the installation of solar panels across 1,198 HDB blocks and 57 government sites. When completed, it will become Singapore’s largest collection of distributed solar systems capable of generating at least 90 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of solar energy annually. According to Terrenus Energy’s estimations, this amount of energy is enough to power around 20,000 4-room HDB flats for one year and help to offset carbon emissions by about 38,000 tonnes per year. This is also equivalent to planting around two million trees or taking 8,000 cars off the road.
