SINGAPORE, July 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- 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.
