will there be a min service level fulfilment?
100% no downtime or at their mercy?

knn imagine at the most climax time - suddenly blackout no power - sianzzzzzzzzz
No such thing bah. Electricity doesn't work like your ISP. Everything from the power stations and solar panels are pooled into the grid like a reservoir. The electron you consume may not have been even fed in by the power company you paid.

Where they can screw up is the billing system, or sneaky contract terms.

I see. Checked Geneco- Seraya, 50% off-peak, $0.10/kwh does not have other third party charges leh
for residential, all charges are bundled in already. you wont see third party charge line items in your bill.

as for whether its worth it or not, i cant comment...

Just wait for this website to go LIVE then we can compare. But in meantime, do up a list of your past electricity consumptions and take note of the rates.

Do math yourself, and judge yourself, the timings you use most electricity the most.

Already inside the rates they give you then. They should have done their homework on how to recover the third party costs from you before offering you the plan. Some providers separate it out so you can see, some lump it in. Ironically my household benefits from separating it as my consumption a bit on the high side, so a separate charge plus a cheaper rate is beneficial.

imo
for those household with no1 around during weekday daylight hours (except fridge/fish tanks)
by right should be better choosing those 7am-7pm 2 tier pricing right?
ie 7am-7pm more ex than 7pm-7am.

those with larger household with family memebers 24/7 inside may have a larger issue
choosing between flat n 2 tier prices.

you wont be allowed to accept the contract until you accept the terms and conditions. just go to any retailer website, click on whatever plans and then before you accept you will see a link to see all the terms and conditions.

I think they all seem to be changing last min to match the competition. Keppel was 21% last I checked.

Haha Ohm was very thorough on that. Cannot even click next until you really go and open the terms and conditions.

I think cheapest is if use geneco seraya and buy a battery to store the 0.10 cents electricity during non-peak and use the battery during peak period.

Firstly, seraya must allow it, and then, need to calculate the cost of doing such and when breakeven.

I google, it is called time of use home battery or something

http://www.eco-business.com/news/for...ones-you-want/


And if you currently have a time-of-use tariff with your electricity provider, the switch could help your building make big cost savings simply by storing cheap off-peak power and then using it to reduce your draw on the grid when prices go up.
In New York, for example—the owners of Barclay Tower, a 58-storey luxury apartment building—were able to save USD$50,000 a year by putting a battery system in the basement. The savings equated to a four-year payback.
Seems tesla do for a building in USA and it has a 4 year payback which is not bad. 25% returns a year so called. Sinkie land, anyone do?
