ST showcase based on plan price rate and promo without digging deeper...guess most people will trip over themselves over the Best Cash rebate promo
Cash rebate will entice elderly the most. They see liao, bought over liao

don't wish to be tied down that long, after 12 months by then most other areas open liao so should have more competition and offers.

Could be wrong though so its a gamble.

Full opening of electricity market in Singapore to fire up competition: What will retailers do?

https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news...-10767418?haha

Non premium news unlike ST.

An interview with Jomar:
Ohm Energy’s managing director Jomar Eldoy said: “We have seen, what I would call, subsidised prices in Jurong and that may very well be what our competitors will put out when the next section of the market opens later this year.”
Unable to reveal more.

Given that they are only allowed to start marketing from Nov 1, retailers that Channel NewsAsia approached were tight-lipped about their upcoming plans. For those that are already retailing, they declined to reveal if further price changes are in the pipeline.

For those that did not read or those who say very troublesome to switch

The agency also surveyed 400 people that have switched retailers; about 80 per cent agreed that the initiative has its benefits such as competitive pricing and innovative offers, while a similar percentage of respondents described the switching process as an easy one.
One geneco customer views
Mr Jason Low is among those who welcome the market liberalisation. Though he was “sitting on the fence” initially, the 35-year-old said he was convinced by “attractive discounts” during an EMA-organised roadshow in April.

Since signing up for a two-year fixed rate plan with Geneco, a brand under YTL PowerSeraya, Mr Low said the monthly bill for his family of four has gone down by more than S$40. “Going for something that helps to cut down household expenses seems like a practical thing to do.”
Still there are many Jurong customers wait and see

More info about OEM from Nov

I think he means that some offered rates (perhaps like 15.99?) are technically not possible to do while having a reasonable profit to stay sustainable, hence the possibility of some retailers purposely burning capital just to gain marketshare.

I think Ohm's general strategy for non standard plans is more of securing their $10 profit first before giving you rates at their cost price, which can be seen from Simply and Market Ohm so I can see that their assumption is plausible.
