12 new Electricity Retailers to choose from when Open Electricity Market launches nationwide from November

Here's what you need to know

Consumers can switch to another electricity retailer as early as this November

Starting from 1 November, homeowners and business owners in Singapore will be able to switch to another electricity retailer at a price plan that best meets their needs as Open Electricity Market launches nationwide.

The nationwide launch will be rolled out progressively to the four zones in Singapore (see table below).

Currently, Jurong consumers with postal codes 60 to 64 can buy from the new electricity retailers as part of the pilot program launched in April earlier this year.

What you need to know

There are some things to consider before making the switch:

  • It is not compulsory – you can still continue to buy electricity from SP Group.
  • You can switch anytime – there’s no deadline for switching to another electricity retailer.
  • U-Save rebates – your rebates will not be affected regardless if you make the switch or not.
  • When you do switch – the new electricity retailer will work with SP Group to make the switch for you.
