IMPACT 0149: HELPING SINGAPORE BUSINESSES AND HOUSEHOLDS TRANSITION TO SOLAR
Daryl Tang is the co-founder of solar energy company PCME, which has installed and commissioned over 150 solar panels around Singapore in the last four years. As climate change becomes increasingly pressing, Daryl feels it is important that more businesses and households transition to more sustainable sources of energy. Since COVID-19 broke out in 2020, a lot more Singaporeans have also been staying at home for longer periods of time. Personal effort becomes more crucial, and Daryl hopes to communicate the long-term environmental and financial benefits of choosing solar energy over more harmful alternatives.
“SOLAR ENERGY WAS FROWNED UPON AS IT WAS DEEMED TOO EXPENSIVE, AND THE PICKUP RATE WAS EXTREMELY LOW.”
“IT’S EASY TO FEEL POWERLESS WITH A PROBLEM SUCH AS CLIMATE CHANGE. BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE IN A POSITION OF POWER TO MAKE A CHANGE.”
