The partnership will import 100MW of electricity to be generated from renewable energy sources, TNB and Sunseap said in a joint statement which did not give any financial details.

The electricity to be imported by the partners could account for about 1.5 per cent of Singapore's peak electricity demand, and could begin as early as end-2021 via the existing electricity interconnector between Singapore and Malaysia, the joint statement said.

If successful, the venture between Sunseap and TNB will invest in multiple solar farms across Malaysia and tap other forms of clean energy, such as hydroelectricity, from TNB's existing plants to ensure a reliable and stable supply of power into Singapore, the statement said.
