Dubbed the first green powered residential development in the City of Elmina, units in Ilham Residence will be installed with solar panels, smart green meters and home energy management systems.

Homeowners will be able to manage their energy consumption, as well as allow them to sell excess energy back to TNB under the Net Energy Metering (NEM) scheme.

“The Smart Green Home Solutions create awareness on responsible energy consumption which addresses concerns such as climate change and the rising cost of living,” Sime Darby Property General Manager Appollo Leong Yong Kuan said in a media release today.

He added that Ilham Residence was designed to meet the needs of all types of families, from young couples to a growing and multigenerational family. Value-added extras and multigenerational features at Ilham Residence include wide, unobstructed spaces, detachable child-safety gates, foldable handrails in the bathrooms, built-in Bluetooth speakers and sockets equipped with USB ports, among others. There will also be a 24-hour security and perimeter fencing guarding the development.

The township is easily accessible via the North Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE), Guthrie Corridor Expressway (GCE), LATAR Expressway, Elite Highway and Federal Highway. Moreover, the upcoming Damansara-Shah Alam Highway (DASH) is expected to significantly shorten travel time from the township to the KL city centre.
