Q1. Is there a deadline to switch?
No. There is no deadline to switch and it is also not compulsory to switch. You have the choice to switch to a retailer or continue buying your electricity from SP Power.

If you are currently buying electricity from SP Power, you can simply head to our page here, select the price plan that best suits you and fill in the online form with your details. All you need is your NRIC and SP Account number!
If you haven’t set up your SP utilities account yet, you’ll need to set it up in order to switch to any retailer. Here’s a guide to walk you through the process.
If you are in a contract with another retailer, you can sign up 90 days before your contract end date. Just remember to select your preferred contract start date.
Q3. Will there be any interruptions, delays, or disruptions to my electricity supply if I switch?
No. You will still enjoy the same quality electricity supply that you are experiencing today.
Q4. Which price plans are there and which should I choose?
There are two price plans that you should be aware of and selecting the right one will depend on your household needs.
The fixed price plan allows you to lock in a fixed rate for the duration of your contract and suitable if you desire to have a predictable electric bill.
The discount-off-tariff plan allows you to enjoy guaranteed savings off the regulated tariff.
Q5. Is buying electricity wholesale from SP Power a better choice?
When you buy electricity wholesale, you are paying for electricity at prices that vary every half-hour. This is done through SP Group.
While you can choose to buy your electricity from the wholesale electricity market, it is potentially a riskier option as you will be exposed to price uncertainties due to fluctuations in the market supply and demand.
The fixed price plan or discount-off-tariff plan are better options to enjoy savings while ensuring price stability.
Q6. What happens to my U-Save rebates when I switch to a retailer?
Q7. How much can I expect to save on my electric bill if I make the switch?
The amount you save will depend on your unique household electricity usage.
