my mum switch on tv from 730am until me come back from home watch until 2am

using induction cooker and air fryer for cooking, no gas stove

not using aircon, just using fans and air purifier during sleep.

my inverter fridge spoilt, so change to non inverter china brand and the electiricity cost went down alot

though my vacuum cleaner is switch on 24/7, schedule every morning to auto vacuum the floor.
You mean you see savings after switching to Chinese brand non-inverter fridge?? How could that possibly be?

For now as i'm studying at home. Desktop PC is turned on from 10am to 12am. But not everyday as there are night classes. Plus aircon during day and night, 500kWh a mth.
wow then i guess ur aircon contributed more to the 500kWh than ur PC...
my aircon usually i scheduled it to off arn 2am or so...

yes, That's bobian compulsory need to on 3x aircon (9,000btu) at night. Cos it's super humid and hot.

Sometimes during evening, i also turn on living room aircon (24,000 btu). Sometimes even worst, turn on living room and 2 rooms if really the weather tak boleh tahan.

But overall, it was never above 550kWh.

yah, i stupid got pay sgd1.2k buy a hitachi inverter fridge and spoilt after 3yrs and the cost of repair estimated $300-400 to change mother board.

so i went to buy midea fridge, similar size without inverter and fancy digital control, the eletricity bill cost immediately can see diff the following mth

fridge same coldness lor, no digital control or door alarm also does not make any difference in usage

Did anyone experiment with those smart plug to find out how much power does each of your appliance consume?

I did a rough check and discover some usage eg assuming operating 24hr a day...

cable modem - 13W/hr ($2/mth)
LED monitor - 19W/hr ($2.20/mth)
fan - 36W/hr @ speed 1 ($5.50/mth)
SCV settop box - 18W/hr ($2.8/mth)

oven - 1400W/hr ($8.9/mth for 1 hr usage per day)
washing machine - 340W/hr ($2.20/mth for 1 hr usage per day)

The equivalent discount is actually good up to 800kWh cos they are still giving a 10% off SP tariff for usage above 450kWh…

On mobile can't post link… you can check the spreadsheet I posted earlier…

My third choice would be different as my usage is above 500-530kWh. The 450kWh cap for Sembcrop is abit risky.

1st choice: Ohm Discount
2nd choice: Geneco Night saver (40%/10%)

Not sure for my third choice as yet to decide. One interesting plan is PacificLight's peak 16% discount, off-peak 26% discount, although averages out ohm will be cheaper

Yep, i saw your sheets. Thanks. Your sheet is very comprehensive! great work. But with those retailers changing plans everytime, hard to predict the changes. But what i think is, Ohm will continue the 22% plan as they are quite new and need market share. Moreover, they need capture the rest of the population outside Jurong Town.

I don't own the smart plug, but we aga aga the usage. Checking my TV specs, it says 0.3W. The smart plug only can handle one connection at a time ?

i see. But if you plug multi-plug, isn't the reading going to read the combined usage of the plug? Do you find the smart plug useful so far?

So far the D-Link & TP-Link have model that shows the power usage via the app...
I'll post more screenshot over here:

It depends if u wanna check the power consumption per appliance or a group of appliances...
It's useful for providing power consumption info... eg how much power/cost if you were to on
your fan at speed 1,2 or 3... power consumptiom of PC when in use as compared to standby or sleep mode etc...
