Just In Time Production Activity
Working Day 1, UTICA SG receives your order
Working Day 2-6, UTICA SG confirms your order and prepares the necessary materials and components for manufacturing.
Working Day 7-15, System in production. Delays may occur at this stage if there are part shortages.
Working Day 16-20, System leaves UTICA SG’s factory and is handed over to logistic company for delivery to your specific delivery address.

What is solar energy?
Solar energy takes advantage of the sunlight to generate heat or electricity. It is an infinitely renewable resource and unique for its ability to generate energy in a quiet, clean, and consistent manner.

In layperson terms, photovoltaic cells are comprised of a semiconductor material such as silicon. Added to the silicon are the elements phosphorous and boron which create conductivity within the cell and activate the movement of electrons. The electrons move across the cell when activated by the sunlight’s energy into the electrical circuit hooked up to the solar panel.

Solar panels are flat panels of photovoltaic arrays mounted on a roof or a pole to capture the sun’s rays. Building integrated photovoltaic materials are PV arrays that are integrated into the building material itself, primarily windows, roof tiles, or walls. Solar panels work well for retrofits or remodels while BIPV are appropriate for new construction or a major renovation.

A 100kWp solar electric system will cost approximately S$200,000. That total includes the cost for all components – solar modules, panel mountings, and PV inverter – and labor associated with installation. It does not reflect all the avoided costs, such as the tax breaks and the credits received through net metering.

Of course this is a relative question. It depends, in part, on how much electricity you use and how efficient the appliances are that you operate. That said expect to generate excess electricity in the summer (when days are long) which can potentially offset the energy you use from the grid in the winter. A combination of energy efficient appliances and LED lightings can help reduce your homes energy bill by over 50% to 100%.

Solar photovoltaic panels require little maintenance – no need to wash or dust. It is, however, important to place panels where they will remain clear of shade and debris. Thus you will have to wipe them off if too much snow or leaves fall on them.  Solar thermal hot water collection arrays don’t need much attention either. It does help to periodically use a window wash brush, biodegradable soap, and water to clean the tubes.

Yes. Consider using UTICA SG’s solar energy financing for the purchase and installation costs of a solar energy system and take full advantage of Greenmark points and tax deductions. Solar energy systems are viewed as a major building energy savings upgrade and there are financial tools out there that reward you for your efforts.

Standard building’s insurance policies usually suffice to meet electric utility requirements. Electric utilities usually require that owners who take advantage of net metering sign a grid-tied agreement.

Yes. You will need to obtain building permits to install a solar photovoltaic or solar hot water system. Similarly, building, electrical, and plumbing codes also apply. That said, residential solar power systems do not use “radical” building techniques and most jurisdictions have building codes that fully embrace solar energy technology.

Net meters look very much like other outdoor meters with one notable exception – they rotate both forwards (for imports) and backwards (for export) recording both the power produced and power used

Probably not – a backup battery bank can add as much as 35% in cost to a solar energy system. UTICA SG has PV MobileGrid generators for batteries required solar energy systems.

The location of the building or ground area and the local climate will play into where you position and how you install your solar energy system or solar thermal system. Wind speeds, hails, and salt water can all affect a photovoltaic array. Understanding how those inputs effect performance will determine the types of metal mounts, how the arrays are angled or types of IPPU or systems to apply.
