5 Top Solar PPA Developers in Singapore

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Solar Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), sometimes described as solar leasing, is a type of zero upfront cost arrangement whereby a commercial property owner leases out their roof space to a solar panel company that will install and maintain a solar panel system on their roof over a longer duration. In exchange, the property owner is entitled to purchase solar electricity from the solar panel system at a significant discount, which can be as substantial as 50-70%, depending on the roof’s capacity.

Solar developers, also referred to as project developers or Independent Power Producers (IPP), are solar companies who finance, own and operate a solar project through a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) model. These companies often partner with solar installers or Engineering, Procurement and Construction companies (EPCs) to install a solar project. They may also have their internal EPC arm to conduct installation and construction work.

Note: If you’re a landed homeowner or are planning to purchase your solar system upfront, take a look at our list of the top solar installers in Singapore instead.

PPAs for smaller commercial properties

Solar Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) in Singapore are often only applicable for larger properties with available roof space of above 2,000 sqm (or a solar potential of >500 kWp), and remaining lease term of at least 20 years.

However, here at GetSolar we’re committed to making it as simple as possible for all property owners to get solar. Funded by ENGIE Group, one of the world’s largest renewable energy companies, GetSolar is now bringing zero upfront cost solar offers to all SMEs and business owners regardless of roof size, with contract terms as short as 5 years.
