But NOT all retailers so convenient.

Lazy people like me want convenient retailers because don't need to additional go apply GIRO for it.
I think the retailers will do everything for you. Geneco deposit is $70 for Grio , non-Giro will be $100. Gonna check with SP if can take back deposit or not if I switch.

But what I think is, SP still owns the infrastructure, still provide you the power. So they got rights to keep the deposit as they still master.

Actually the deposit with SP is to cover electricity, water and gas. Even if you outsource the electricity, water and gas still need deposit.

Now the interesting thing is that SP used to bill electricity directly, and then collect money on behalf of CityGas and PUB. Now when switch to Ohm, they are just a billing and infra company, collecting money for Ohm, CityGas and PUB.

Did your company consider battery to save money in the long run?

They won't. They own the second largest power station in Singapore, surely they know better than to sell a non profitable plan.
The grid charges are around 5c per kWh as claimed by sp on how they derive their 20c per kWh.

So it was strange that wholesale prices didn’t go down to 5c per kWh if geneco can make money at 50% off.

They might have their own mechanism on how they make money at the same time offering 50% knowing overall Singapore usage is lowest during 12am to 6am

More than 3 years ago, my neighbour managed to get a test set that transmits the reading wirelessly to a small display device.

anyone posted this already?

Tuas Power Supply said the first 1,000 customers in Jurong who sign up for its three-month trial will get free electricity for the first month. The company will be holding several roadshows in Jurong to explain its different electricity plans directly to consumers.

Nope, but anyway Tuas power rates are among the worst. Almost SP tariff.

Even with free first month not very attractive.
