REC Group is proudly powering the COVID-19 Recovery Facility at the Changi Exhibition Centre with clean solar energy
REC Group, the international pioneering company based out of Singapore with its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Tuas, is helping power the COVID-19 recovery facility at the Changi Exhibition Center with clean solar energy.
Power for powerful technologies
The 240.9 kW installation at Changi site consists of 660 REC Alpha
Series solar panels, producing clean energy of about 40,000
kilowatt-hours (kWh), equivalent to the average monthly energy use of
100 four-room Housing and Development Board flats.
The present system supplies 20 percent of the projected overall
energy demand of the recovery facility. The system also indirectly helps
to cool the facility, with a 3-degree differential in ambient
temperature inside tents.
This is the latest major project empowered by REC high-efficiency
products - and one of many in the island nation; the other notable ones
being Singapore Sustainable Academy, Singapore Sports Hub, Tiger Beer
Brewery among others. "COVID-19 recovery facility is a great example of
resilience and we are humbled to be powering this with made in Singapore solar panels," says REC Group's CEO Steve O'Neil.
