Who is eligible to participate in the Open Electricity Market, and switch from SP to Union Power?

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 switch to become contestable. Consumers are able to add up their electricity usage across different locations in Singapore to meet the 2,000kWh threshold to apply for contestability.

Starting April 2018, business and residential consumers whose premises have postal codes starting with 60, 61, 62, 63 and 64 are able to buy electricity from Union Power.

Note that consumers who are under the prepaid metering scheme with SP Group can only switch to become contestable after clearing all outstanding arrears owed to SP Group.
