I guess some of us missed the ohm 50% promo which is really unfortunate, since that seems to be the buy-in deal. Although it also has referral $20, but that is provided we have many friends who will use our code, or we go around giving out referral codes to earn the multiple $20.

For household consumption btwn 400 - 800kWh, seems like this sembcorp's flat rate is the next best plan for those who missed ohm 50% promo?
i believe they would come out with another promotion, other than the $20 referral scheme. There must be something to keep customers coming in. Their business model is just like circles.life.

On the other side, their facebook post, their website, they look very chill.

if that's the case, for those who missed ohm 50%, seems like the notion is to wait for retailers to come out with better buy-in deals, rather than rushing in to sign up now?

i'm curious, for those who signed up with ohm, what would be your next best choice (based on current retailers' price plans) after your 3-6mth with ohm ends?

I would wait and see. Backup second best would be Geneco, the peak and off-peak plan which would be slightly cheaper than ohm's 22% on a long run. But my calculations is based on the 50%/10%, now that they changed to 40%, then 22% ohm might be more worthwhile as i do not need to shift power hungry electronics to mid-night

Those who have issues signing up with ohm, please click open and read the T&CS and the agree button is below. It's good that they want you to read the t&C before agreeing.
More like a compliance enforced by gov? Who really read it? I bet all will just open and click agree to proceed.

I guess I am the only one who rule out ohm because they continue to use SP billing? Haha

Actually, I did read parts of it. briefly screen through. As this is, you know, we Jurong Residents are white mice, pilot test. We are signing for the unknowns. It's unlike telcos, as we already knew the hidden charges they charge in the 24mths contract

oh i forgot to include, that is, assuming ohm ends their 22% after 6mth (or change the 22% to eg 10-15%), what other 2nd/3rd choice plans will you go for .. I'm assuming their 22% will not last longer than 6mths lol..

so im reading Jurong640 will go for maybe Geneco peak/off-peak. What about your 3rd choice?

Don't think so, I think there are also people who prefer not to be tagged or same billing with SP group. Actually, i was tempting to sign Geneco also as they have separate billing.

If really want fuss-free, i'll stay put with Ohm, Don't want mafan all the switch over, separate billing, giro application, pay another security deposit.

On the other hand,i don't think the discount would be too less as they still need to tempt those other towns in Singapore to take up them. That is when your referral would be in good use. Currently, we are limited to referring Jurong kias only

Don't think they will change their rates after 6 months, except the fixed Ohm and simply Ohm plans.

1st Choice Ohm
2nd Choice Geneco night saver (12mths)
3rd Choice Sempcorp Flat rate, provided your usage is around 500kWh, max 800kWh (24mths)
