Why Solar Energy?
Environmental sustainability is among the agendas of many countries since the start of this millennium. In fact, environmental sustainability is the seventh of the millennium development goals set by the United Nations. It is also emphasised that developed countries like Singapore have a huge role to play in the world’s effort for sustainable development. Thus, we introduce the “solar panels for your home” initiative.
As an energy supplier in the country, Union Power’s answer to this call is the use of solar energy in Singapore as an alternative to burning fossil fuels to generate electricity through our solar panels for home projects. With solar panel installations, homes and businesses can have access to cleaner energy sources, making solar leasing a very crucial project to address the threats of global warming
Reduce Carbon Footprint
One of the cleanest forms of energy available for Singapore homeowners. Solar panels for homes generate electricity without producing carbon dioxide, thus saving the environment.
Save on Electricity Bill
Depending on your electricity consumption & roof size, going solar will save your electricity bill by a substantial percentage up to 80%!
Reduce Heat & Increase Roof Longevity
Adding an additional layer of solar panels on top of your roof significantly reduces direct sunlight to your roof & heat into your house especially with Singapore positioned right at the equator.
With no moving parts throughout the operational lifespan of our solar PV system, solar panels for home are expected to consistently produce up to 80% of their original capacity after 25 years.
Little to No Maintenance
Once your solar PV system is operational, there is very little you have to do. Yearly or even bi-yearly maintenance check is sufficient to ensure the system is running on optimum condition.
The roof is the most favourable area for installation of solar panels for homes as it is the spot that directly receives the UV rays. Our dedicated team of professionals will schedule a visit to your house to inspect the type of roof, orientation & suitability to determine if it will be ideal to hold solar panels for homes.
Solar PV system integration takes 3-6 months depending on the size of the roof and the system. Union Solar will take measures to ensure timely project delivery.
Our specialist will schedule a time with you to explain the whole process in order to equip you with all the right knowledge & information to make an informed buying decision before installing our solar panels for your home.
Customized Solar Proposal
You will receive a no-obligation customised proposal based on your roof layout & energy needs.
The entire installation process of solar panels will be performed & supervised by our highly trained & experienced in-house workers & engineers.
Testing & Commissioning
Your solar PV system will be safe for use as it will be tested & endorsed by a License Electrical Working (LEW). The appointed LEW will then liaise with Singapore Power for bi-directional meter change & commissioning.
Your solar PV system should be up & running by now, producing electricity for your home!
Guide On Choosing The Right Solar Panels For Home
Solar panels for homes and offices are now prevalent in Singapore. Since they offer clean and renewable energy, it is good to know that solar panels for your home are now within your reach. If you are interested in having solar panels, here are some factors to consider before investing in solar panels for home use:
- Number or Size of the Solar Panels
The number of solar panels for your home may vary depending on your requirements and budget. If you will depend entirely on solar panels to power your household, that may take several solar panels to be installed.
- Area for Installation
The roof is the area where solar panels for homes are typically installed. Flat roofs are more ideal for solar panels as they can gather more solar energy throughout the day with this angle.
It is good to save up and invest in solar panels for your home to enjoy greater savings in the long run. Do factor in that apart from buying solar panels, you will also need to pay for the installation service and in some cases construction service (if your roof is not solar panel ready).
