From my high HDB I can look down on 12 storey HDB. [laugh]

There looks to be some work going on on a group of 12 storey HDB nearby where they appear to be installing solar panels on the roof.

 

Is this correct and have they been installed elsewhere?

 

I think it's a good idea.

I rather they install thermal solar water pipes and give free hot water to the whole block
But of course, this can only be done for new flats
Being in insulated piping and insulated tanks is really really tough

The return of investment is slow. My neighbour installs solar panel and sell back to grid, he gets back about $100+ per month. Based on his investment, he needs more than 15 years to get back his money, letting alone repair and maintenance over the next 15 years.

I install my own solar panel with lights for my fish tank. $50 for the whole thing. Lights power on from 3 to 8 hrs depends on how sunny the day is.

How much he plowed in for the solar panel? Sell back to powergrid $100, own consumption save on $150 (minimum), if use electric/hybrid vehicle save another $150 on petrol....$400 saving a month good wor! I also know of 1.....private property....came out newspaper. Think he put in $25k.....he rich fella, father-in-law property developer.....very nice guy....he wants to save the environment.

You need to look at a bigger picture, not just look at solar panels.

 

With something of this scale you require installation. Control unit to charge the batteries. This is vital as you do not want to over-charge your batteries. These are fast charge and discharge batteries, no cheap. Power converter to convert 12V to 240V. Wiring installation.

 

You just have to imagine doing a small scale project just to charge your phone or any mobile device. Amazon has such kits but battery you will have to get locally. It's by no means cheap even for a small scale project.

Actually if u look around, there r more sheltered walkways, esp those linkin to mrt. New malls also hv bridges to link to one another. But I guess that's means e weather's getting hotter besides e plan for barrier free access
