Energy Efficiency

How Households Can Be More Energy Efficient

  • Adopt energy saving habits, such as setting the temperature of the air conditioner to no lower than 25°C or switching off unused appliances at the socket.
  • Share your suggestions on lowering energy usage.


How is the Government helping you?

  • Deploying advanced electricity meters for all households by 2024. These meters enable households to monitor their electricity usage via the SP Utilities mobile app.
  • Existing HDB towns will use 15% less energy through the use of smart LED lighting and solar energy by 2030. New HDB towns will also be more sustainable such as having centralised cooling systems.
  • Introduced a $24 million Climate-Friendly Household Programmeto encourage households living in 1- to 3-room HDB flats to purchase energy efficient appliances.
  • Introduced the Mandatory Energy Labelling Scheme (MELS) to help consumers compare the energy efficiency of regulated goods to make informed purchasing decisions.
  • Set the Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) to raise the average energy efficiency of various household appliances such as refrigerators, air-conditioners and clothes dryers.
  • Piloted a Customised Household Energy Efficiency Report (CHEER) for Jurong households with advanced electricity meters. This report helps them to better understand their electricity consumption patterns, with personalised tips on how they can save energy.
