3 months trial. But rates not attractive. 1 month free?t&c applies
Article is by TodayOnline https://www.todayonline.com/singapor...-energy-market

Seems the only good thing about them is the billing by SP Group, but that is not something that Ohm isn't already doing.

geneco no 3rd party charges and no transmission loss charges leh

Most of the others too actually. So far only Keppel played the Transmission Loss charges game.

Only applies for their Ohm Market wholesale plan. This one is you pay them $10 for service fee, everything else you tank. Not recommended if you dunno what you are doing.

Other 3 plans are all inclusive. Read their FAQ

Are Third Party Charges included in the electricity rate of my Price Plan?
It depends on which Price Plan you’ve chosen to go with. If it’s indicated in your Price Plan details that your electricity rate is “all-inclusive”, it usually means that the Third Party Charges are already included in your electricity rate.

Simply- if you don't know how the market works, don't choose the wholesale plan. Just take fixed rate or discount will be safe.

Generally in terms of risk

Wholesale>Fixed rate>Tariff discounted

Very much like investment.

A riskier option can potentially give bigger returns, but also bigger losses.

Pool prices can really go crazy when there's a supply shock... The highest it can go is $4.50 per kwh or $4500 per mwh. Any higher than that ah gong will cap at that price

Ohm apparently has their own optional cap as an add on

Cap Your Bill
For less than a cent per kWh, you will never pay more for your electricity than you would have paid on SPís regulated tariff.

Your Electricity Rate capped at 15.5 cents/kWh

Purposely went down to jurong point. Went to ask Keppel about the "Loss adjusted consumption". The more junior salesgirls couldnt explain it, an indian guy who seemed to be the most senior one there whom the girls asked bullcrapped some story about how meters are estimated and loss adjustment means how they correct for over or underestimation the month after the estimated month. I said are you very sure that is what it means? He said yeah that is what it means.

When you have a bad point, you smoke it off as something else lol

they do sales, 1st they need to study their T&C and factsheet.... at least that's the basic, then study competitor T&C and factsheet... compare... adventage and disadvantage... etc....

For anyone who's interested.

Loss adjusted usage is basically factoring transmission loss factor, which takes into account the electricity loss in transition

Meaning when 100 kWh is sent, not 100 kWh is received by the other party. In this case the receiving party has received maybe 98 (example figures don't quote me).

By applying the transmission loss factor, the receiving party technically pays the full price for the 100kWh.

Note that the transmission factor is different based on the load type. For residential I think it's 1.037xxx

Yup. Technically means that their 16. 5c/kwh plan is the equivalent of other companies' 17.1c/kwh plans in terms of cost.
