Apple has moved to power its entire Singapore operations with solar energy, making it on course to be the first company on the island-nation to do so, according to various media reports yesterday.

The American tech giant announced a deal with Singapore clean energy provider Sunseap Group to provide power to its corporate campus in Ang Mo Kio.

Also, it confirmed the impending opening of its first retail store in Singapore, which will also run on solar energy under the same deal, reported Reuters .

While the store’s location has not been announced, Knightbridge in Orchard Road is the rumoured location, with a gym currently located there reportedly notifying members last month that it will close in December to make way for the Apple store.

Apple has started hiring for the store, with 14 positions listed in retail.
