Solar PV Roof - Best Investment decision with ZERO cost

In July 2018, we commissioned the 750 KWp Solar Photovoltaic Roof for our factory. Since then, life has never been the same.

The immediate benefit to us, was being able to export power to the grid. In fact, we exported so much power that we received a cheque from Singapore Power at the end of the month. Instead of consuming about 30,000 KWh each month, we were now exporting approximately 50,000 KWh excess in August (see below). This excess is nett of our consumption (of about 30,000 KWh).

Monthly Drop

While we knew that this was going to be the result, the before and after comparison becomes more astounding when matching the daily consumption for the month of May 2018 (Before) with August 2018 (After). Figure 1 clearly demonstrates that the consumption profile of August 2018 vertically flips into a negative reading.  These profiles were obtained through our user dashboard that we provide to all ES Power customers.

ES Power’s Solar PV journey began when we decided to take up the generous offer of our partners, LYS Energy Group, for a turnkey build, commission, operate & maintain proposal at ZERO investment.  The entire process was a breeze, and professionally delivered with full compliance of the electrical, fire and labour laws. From installation to commissioning, the 3 months cooperation was hassle-free, and conducted within our strict, inhouse pre-requisite risk assessment.

Having our own renewable power generating asset fulfills one of our many sustainability goals, in particular for clean energy. And we are now able to contribute to a greater community through renewable energy certificates (See Green Electricity).

This is definitely one of the best decision we ever made and it has most certainly exceeded all expectations!
