Despite Singapore having a long and profitable relationship with the iPhone, Apple has never got around to opening a retail store there. All that’s changing with the announcement of a new store, and a network of solar panels to power it.

Apple has confirmed that a new store is opening in the city, although the date and location are still unknown. What is known is how all those pretty demonstration iPhones will be powered: Apple has struck a deal with Sunseap to put solar panels on 800 buildings across the city.

That should be enough to supply 50 megawatts of power, while Apple’s operations will only need a projected 33, leaving 17 megawatts of guilt-free electricity up for grabs.
