Singapore electricity consumers have now more options for electricity plans with the Open Electricity Market (OEM) initiative. It’s been active for some time so if you’re still paying your bills to SP (Singapore Power), it’s time to switch to one of the 5 best electricity providers in Singapore.
What are the advantages of the OEM?
With the opening up of the electricity market in the country, consumers can enjoy the following benefits:
- More electricity plan options
While SP Group offers a fixed, quarterly tariff rate, retailers on the other hand allow you to choose from two electricity plan types. You can choose from whom to buy electricity and how you want to buy it. With OEM, you can potentially save a lot on electricity consumption.
- Better prices and innovations
Selling the same product means retailers have to provide great prices and better services than their competition. You will greatly benefit from the competition with more perks and offerings like referral cashback, free months of electricity, and more.
- More conscious energy consumption
You as a consumer will be more aware of how much energy you are using even if your home is at the new condo by Shun Tak. You can take stock of the areas where there are electricity wastages such as appliances and gadgets. By being conscious of your consumption, you are not only saving money but the environment as well.
How do you pick the right electricity provider?
Having to choose between 12 electricity retailers can be overwhelming. It can lead to some analysis paralysis. To get you started, here are 3 steps to choosing the right electricity retailer.
Step 1. Pick a plan. Would you like a discount on the regulated tariff or a fixed-rate plan?
Step 2. Decide the contract duration. Do you want a 6-month term or a 3-year one?
Step 3. Compare retailer prices. Would you prefer the cheapest price per KWH or a huge tariff discount?
All of them use the same electricity source from SP Group, so it’s really all about the price plan.
