Phoenix Solar to build largest PV system in Singapore

[Singapore] And solar panels begin establishing their presence here!

“Phoenix Solar on Monday announced that it will design and build the biggest photovoltaic (PV) system in Singapore for supermarket giant Sheng Siong Group […] on the roof of the main office and distribution centre of CMM, which covers an area of 11,000 square metres.

[…] This is equivalent to switching 15 per cent of the marketing and distribution firm’s current fossil fuel-powered electricity consumption to solar energy.”
