Apple partnered with Singapore's Sunseap Group who will provide power to the company's 2,500-person corporate campus and retail store. The energy will be obtained from solar panels laid on the rooftops of 800 buildings.
"We're thrilled to be working with Sunseap and the government of Singapore to pioneer new ways to bring solar energy to the country and bring Apple even closer to our goal of powering our facilities around the world with 100 percent renewable energy," said Lisa Jackson, Apple's vice president of environment, policy and social initiatives.
The deal is expected to generate 50 megawatts of energy, enough for 9,000 homes. Apple will use 33 megawatts for its campus and upcoming store.
Previously, Apple relied on local distributors, Apple Premium Resellers, for retail and servicing. The new store will likely be in the heart of Singapore's shopping district on Orchard Road and will be about 15,000 square feet in size. Apple is already hiring for geniuses and other retail positions.
