Choosing Your Electricity Provider

Currently, businesses with an average monthly consumption of at least 2,000 kWh (equivalent to a monthly electricity bill of at least $400) are eligible to choose their electricity provider (i.e. become contestable).

Starting 1 April 2018, households and small businesses in Jurong (with postal codes starting with 60, 61, 62, 63 or 64) will become eligible to choose who they wish to buy electricity from.

With the Open Electricity Market, you can choose to buy electricity from:
(a) SP Group at the regulated tariff [no change from current arrangement]
(b) An electricity retailer at a price plan that best meets your needs [new]
(c) The wholesale electricity market at half-hourly wholesale electricity prices through SP Group [new]

It is not compulsory for you to switch to a retailer or buy from the wholesale electricity market. You can continue to buy electricity from SP Group at the regulated tariff. (Consumers who decide not to switch are termed as non-contestable consumers.)

You will continue to enjoy the same reliable electricity supply regardless of your choice of electricity retailer, as SP Group will continue to operate the national power grid to supply electricity to consumers.
