Solar Power

ComfortDelGro recognises the role it plays as a global mobility provider in accelerating climate action. Together with our subsidiaries, we place sustainable environmental performance at the forefront of our operations. We strive to minimise our impacts on the environment and enable a climate-friendly transport system.
As one of our long-term sustainability goals is to meet the preliminary target of 50MWp renewable energy capacity by 2030, the Group, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, ComfortDelGro Engineering Pte Ltd (CDGE), formed a solar power joint venture company with ENGIE South East Asia (ENGIE) on 30 November 2021. The Solar JV – ComfortDelGro ENGIE Solar Pte Ltd – will look into supporting the electrification of the Group’s fleet of vehicles and offer fast charging solutions to our drivers as well as public EV users. Upon obtaining regulatory approvals, The Solar JV will aim to kickstart installation and operation of rooftop solar panels atop three of the Group’s buildings at Loyang, Pandan and Ubi by end-2022.
Apart from upcoming installation plans, the Group has previously worked with Partners to install solar premises at SBS Transit’s Ulu Pandan Bus Depot, which houses 470 buses, and has more than 2,000 solar panels generating about 2,500kWh of electricity per day.
On 26 May 2022, ComfortDelGro Driving Centre announced that they were also reducing its carbon footprint by tapping on solar power as an energy source for its premises. It has installed 290 solar panels on the rooftop of its Centre, which will result in a savings of 30% of its monthly electricity bills.

In the first-half of 2023, 2,943 solar panels were successfully installed on the rooftops of VICOM’s five inspection centres at Kaki Bukit, Sin Ming, Changi North, Yishun and Bukit Batok, as well as at its wholly-owned subsidiary, Setsco Services’ premises at Bukit Batok.

The solar photovoltaic (PV) systems at these six sites have a combined total solar capacity of 1.62 megawatt-peak and will divert VICOM’s energy use away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energy. With an estimated average annual generation output of up to 2,058 megawatt-hour, the solar PV systems are enough to power close to 490 four-room Housing and Development Board flats a year.
