In Singapore, the mall and office tower at Bugis Junction will be partially powered by solar energy, following the installation of about 1,000 sqm of solar panels at the roof of the complex.
Bugis Junction will be able to generate 200,000 kWh of clean energy and mitigate 110 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually, solar company REC said.
This translates into cost savings of S$30,000 every year for the next 25 years.
According to REC, the energy generated is enough to power about 50 four-room HDB households every year.
Bugis Junction shopping mall is owned by CapitaLand Mall Trust, while Bugis Junction Towers belongs to Keppel REIT.
Both properties are recipients of the Building and Construction Authorityâ€™s Green Mark Platinum award, the highest green building accolade in Singapore.
REC, which operates a solar panel plant in Singapore, provides solar energy solutions to companies and households in the region.
