1,000 households opt in for Tengah’s cool new feature
Almost 1,000 homes have enrolled in the centralized air conditioning system (CCS) in the upcoming “woodland town” of Tengah, where some 8,000 Build-To-Order (BTO) flats have been introduced thus far.
Homeowners that select the energy-efficient system will conserve around 15 per cent to 20 percent in upfront prices compared with current market prices, as well as approximately 30 per cent in life cycle prices, energy utilities service provider SP Team, which runs the system in Tengah, claimed the other day.
The CCS is one of several clever attributes that will be implemented in Tengah, which is billed as a “clever energy” town powered by an expert system.
Under the CCS, chilled water will be piped to houses from centralized chillers mounted on the roofs of the chosen Housing Board obstructs. This is extra energy-efficient compared to traditional air-conditioning systems, said SP Group.
The system will be powered by solar energy generated by upright as well as horizontal photovoltaic panels on the rooftops of HDB blocks.
Homeowners can also keep track of and also manage their residence power usage via the MyTengah app, which will be run by SP Group.
They will have the ability to locate electric lorry charging points by means of the application too, and also accumulate points by taking part in sustainable tasks that can be exchanged for incentives.
An electronic control panel will be set up at the lift lobby of each real estate block, which tracks the block’s utilities consumption as well as influence on the setting.
These eco-boards will also offer citizens with tips on just how to lower electric and also water usage, in addition to promoting “sustainable behavior via utilities-savings competitors between blocks”, claimed SP Group.
From today, future residents and also participants of the public can visit the new MyTengah Experience Centre at HDB Center in Toa Payoh Central to find out more regarding the CCS and other eco-friendly services that will be executed in Tengah.

Mr S Harsha, the managing supervisor of sustainable energy services in Singapore for SP Group, stated that Tengah will be the first town in Singapore to have a large centralized air conditioning system, in line with national sustainability initiatives. There are strategies to give predictive air-conditioning maintenance services for property owners making use of the information accumulated, he stated.
” This is part of the end-to-end solution SP Team wants to give, in addition to the normal maintenance of the centralized chillers,” he included.
Around 98 percent of the households that were introduced to the CCS by personnel from SP Group opted in, although Mr S Harsha kept in mind that they were unable to get in touch with all 8,000 households due to regulations throughout the breaker period as well as in-person restrictions implemented as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Repayment will certainly be made only on the day resident accumulate the tricks to their brand-new houses, with air-conditioning units by Daikin pre-installed in their homes, said SP Group. The group declined to expose the specific cost of the CCS.
