The tech-giant, however, did not reveal the store's location in Singapore or the opening date, likely to be in 2016. It also did not confirm the store would be run by solar energy, but directed media queries to the Sunseap statement.    

A Singapore government official also confirmed the venture.
    
"Sunseap's strategic partnership with Apple represents a new frontier in Singapore's drive to utilise more cost-competitive renewable energy," said Goh Chee Kiong, a top official at the government's Economic Development Board.
    
All that Apple would say through a statement by Angela Ahrendts, a corporate official, is that it is 'thrilled to begin hiring a team that will open our first Apple Store in Singapore.'
    
With the deal, Apple will be the first company in Singapore to run exclusively on renewable energy. Apple's website lists 14 open positions for its Singapore retail store, ranging from store leaders, to business managers and technical assistants.
