Singapore will soon be the home of Apple first retail store in Southeast Asia which will be powered solely by solar energy.

Solar energy developer Sunseap Group will be the one providing the renewable energy to Apple by harnessing its systems set up across 800 buildings in Singapore from January next year.

The opening date and location have yet to be revealed, but it is likely to be in 2016.

“Sunseap’s strategic partnership with Apple represents a new frontier in Singapore’s drive to utilize more cost-competitive renewable energy,” said Goh Chee Kiong, a top official at the government’s Economic Development Board as quoted by NBC News taken from Associated Press.

According to Tech Crunch, Apple is currently hiring for its upcoming retail store in Singapore.

“We have more than 900 incredible employees working in our Singapore contact center and are thrilled to begin hiring the team that will open our first Apple Store in Singapore — an incredible international city and shopping destination,” said Angela Ahrendts, Apple’s Senior Vice President for Retail and Online Stores

“We can’t wait to deliver the service, education and entertainment that is loved by Apple customers around the world,” she added.
