Open Electricity Market Roadshow EMA

Helping Singapore Households Save Millions

Since the launch of the Open Electricity Market in 2018, iSwitch (Singapore’s largest licensed green electricity retailer) has helped customers and households save over $20 million on their electricity bill!

As we head into 2020 and beyond, at iSwitch, we are committed to conducting more roadshows around neighbourhoods and major Singapore malls to help residents understand their options of switching and how it can benefit them.

The First Open Electricity Market Roadshow 

Held on the 21st & 22nd April 2018, the Open Electricity Market EMA Roadshow marked the start of the liberalization of Singapore’s electricity market – bringing awareness to the first contestable region of residential customers in Jurong.

Over 1,500 event attendees were out on the prowl to learn more about how electricity retailers can help them save more on their electricity supply and the various benefits of switching from SP Services to a retailer.

Singapore Rolled Out In Four Zones

The open electricity market roll-out was done over 4 phases across 4 zones of Singapore, starting from the West & North-West Singapore and ending in the Central & South Singapore.

As of today, the Open Electricity Market is in full swing and if you are looking to switch to an electricity retailer, you can do so – and enjoy various sign-up perks and savings off your monthly electricity bill!

Zone 1: West & North-West Singapore (1st November 2018)
Postal Codes starting with 58 – 78

How Many Households Has Switched To A Retailer Thus Far?

According to an EMA Survey, out of 1.4 million households that are eligible to make the switch, over 560,000 have switched and are enjoying savings of up to 30% off their monthly household electricity bills marketing the Open Electricity Market as a success.

In fact, 98% of respondents to the survey found the process of switching from SP Services to their chosen retailer easy.

At iSwitch we have helped almost 100,000 households and 3,000 commercial businesses accounts save and are committed to delivering the very best for your home electricity supply.

iSwitch 2018 Roadshows In Review

iSwitch took part in EMA’s Open Electricity Market Roadshow held at Northpoint City on the 1st and 2nd December 2018. 

To celebrate the Christmas and holiday season, we brought in our very own Santa Claus to spread some seasonal cheer with bill rebates as well as a ‘spin-the-wheel’ event for attendees to enjoy even more prizes.

This event was held to commemorate the zone 1 launch of the Open Electricity Market where residents with postal code 65 to 78 are eligible to switch from SP services to their preferred retailer, iSwitch.

iSwitch 2019 Roadshows In Review

It was a fantastic year for our roadshows as we had the opportunity to meet over 60,000 residents across Singapore and assisted them in understanding their options and switching over to save on their electricity bills.

These roadshows were held across Singapore’s heartlands including Aljunied, Bukit Panjang and Clementi to major malls and centres such as Thomson Plaza, West Mall and Suntec City.

What Is The Open Electricity Market?

Since 2001, Singapore’s Energy Market Authority has been deregulating the electricity market in phases and since April of this year, residents in Jurong could choose between the different electricity retailers for the best price plan in the market that suits their household. The result is the Open Electricity Market, where all residents in Singapore will eventually be able to switch over from SP Services to a licensed electricity retailer of their choice.

Who Is EMA?

EMA is the Energy Market Authority of Singapore, a regulatory body that promotes effective competition in the energy market. EMA helps to organise events and roadshows for consumers to learn more about the Open Electricity Market and how to maximise the benefits when switching.
