Community Residences

Make use of the block roofs to reduce common services electricity bill

Public housing and other private condominiums dominate large area of Singapore skyline. There are more than 9000 public housing blocks across 26 towns in Singapore providing dwelling for more than 83% of population. These residences grew at approx. 2% year on year representing the growing demand of inflating population in the island-state. Such public houses consume lot of peak time electricity for the common purposes such as operating the lifts and lighting the lawns and thus pay high electricity bills.

Both these community housing often have many unused roofs across residential blocks that make up very large roofs qualifying them for solar photovoltaic rooftop plants. Solar electricity, generated from the rooftop plants can serve all of the demand for common services (lights, lifts and water pumps) accounting for more than 30% for public housing and more than 50% for the private condominiums.

Price of public grid is increasing by day. The town councils of the public housing, and the developers or management councils of the private condominiums can benefit from their unused roofs and immediately reduce electricity cost of the common services.

Having solar photovoltaic plant on the roof also enhances property value. Historically it’s been observed to have raised property value by more than 10%. In the US such solar installations increase value by more than $ 3 per installed watt capacity.
