Power Quality

Singapore has one of the most reliable supply of electricity.

According to the latest international benchmarking report by DNV GL in 2018, Singapore’s electricity grid is ranked top among major cities. We have an average interruption time of less than 1 minute per customer a year.


SAIDI 2017

Like all electricity supply systems, there is the occasional voltage dip, which is a momentary reduction in electricity supply voltage and not a power failure.

Voltage dips are generally caused by failure of high voltage equipment. Through proper maintenance of such equipment, we strive to keep the frequency of voltage dips in the electricity system to the minimum.

The table below gives information on voltage dip incidents in Singapore.

For the latest update on voltage dip incidents, consumers can call the SP PowerGrid Ltd’s 24-hour Electricity Service Centre at tel: 1800 778 8888 or regulatory action taken against Licensed Workers.
