Open Electricity Market Roadshow

iSwitch participated in the Open Electricity Market Roadshow at Westgate Mall which was held on the 21st and 22nd April 2018. All 14 retailers were present in partnership with The Energy Market Authority to bring awareness to Jurong residents and showcase each retailers’ plans in an approachable environment. In true Singaporean fashion, the event attendees were all out to find the best bargain!

Over 1,500 attendees visited the event to understand more of the benefits of switching. It was the perfect environment for iSwitch to showcase our offerings.

The two plans that were the most popular were the iSwitch Trial and “Chope” the rate.

  • iSwitch Trial – a short term contract with maximum savings.
  • “Chope” the rate – a fixed rate for 2 years.

iSwitch also launched a new promotion plan exclusively for the roadshow – the iPromo, which allows customers to sign up with iSwitch and receive a complimentary iPad (worth $498) or $200 Capitaland Voucher. What made the iPromo stand out was the upfront cost savings in the form of a gift.

The event was a great opportunity for consumers to speak directly with iSwitch team and get individual advise on which plan best suits their home energy needs. We look forward to the next roadshow on 7th-13th May at Jurong Point.
