      Are solar panels or any source of renewable energy currently used on the Saibai Island, and how reliant is the community on these renewable energy sources?

      If solar panels are used, what kind of solar panels are used? How does the servicing of solar panels take place? What is done during rainy and cloudy seasons?

        Hi Sunny,

        In our design brief, we mentioned that ‘To supplement energy sourced from the power station, many residential and commercial buildings on Saibai are fitted with solar hot water systems.’ However, we don’t have any specific information about the extent of installation.

        Use of renewable sources of electricity was a viable option considered in Saibai for a long time. I suggest you do some background reading of the Sustainable Land Use Plan Part 2 Saibai (2012) uploaded in our Resources Section.

        There are also independent suppliers that have assessed the potential of solar panels in Sabai. Click here to see an example.

        I hope this helps.

        Regards,
        Jean
