A sea of change has just taken place in Singapore. An open electricity market was launched with effect from November 2018.

This means Singapore households can now choose their own electricity providers instead of having their energy supplied by SP Group by default. There will now be 13 different electricity providers, each offering several plans.

For those who are willing to do their research and pick the most cost-effective plan for their needs, this can translate to cost savings every month.

We’ve done the homework for you and researched the prices being charged by the various electricity companies in Singapore.

Price comparison of 6-month plans

If you are not ready to commit, one option is to try a short 6-month plan, and then sign on to a longer plan afterwards if you are satisfied with the electricity provider. Here are how the various 6-month Fixed and Discount Off The Regulated Tariff (DOT) plans measure up.

Price comparison of 12-month fixed price plans

Meanwhile, 12-month plans are suitable if you envisage moving to a new house in under two years or are still unsure as to whether you wish to commit for a longer time. Many electricity retailers offer both fixed price and discount-off-tariff plans.

Price comparison of 36-month price plans

Longer plans are the most economical option, as you pay less per month than you would on a shorter plan. Many electricity providers offer 36-month plans that enable you to lock in their rates for three years.
