Installed Capacity & Number of Installations

Solar deployment in Singapore grew significantly over the years, surpassing 1 GWp of solar installed capacity in the first half of 2023. Grid-connected installed capacity increased from 126.0 MWp in 2016 to 1005.7 MWp in the first half of 2023. Singapore is on track to meet 1.5 GWp of solar deployment by 2025, and at least 2 GWp by 2030.

Growth of Solar Capacity (MWp) and Installations

The Private Sector was the driving force behind this growth, accounting for 63.5% (or 638.8 MWp) of the total installed capacity. Town Councils and Public Housing Common Services* had also made significant contributions, accounting for 25.9% (or 260.4 MWp) of the total installed capacity. Public Service Agencies and Residential installations contributed 6.6% (or 66.0 MWp) and 4.0% (or 40.4 MWp) of the total installed capacity, respectively.

This growth in solar PV capacity was reflected in the number of installations in Singapore. As of the first half of 2023, there were a total of 7,698 solar PV installations in Singapore. Town Councils and Public Housing Common Services accounted for a high proportion of the installations at 43.9% (or 3,377), followed by Residential installations at 38.6% (or 2,971). The Non-Residential Private Sector accounted for 14.8% (or 1,138) of the total installations, while Public Service Agencies constituted the remaining 2.8% (or 212).

Solar Installations by Planning Region

As of the first half of 2023, the western region of Singapore had the highest solar PV capacity totalling 366.8 MWac (or 476.4 MWp) from 1,580 installations. This was 47.4% of the total installed capacity of 774.4 MWac (or 1,005.7 MWp). The western region also housed the majority of Singapore’s non-residential solar PV installations (1,421 installations or 30.1% of total non-residential panels).
