Most Singaporeans are now able to engage with the Open Electricity Market (OEM) by buying electricity from a list of 13 retailers. For those who intend to change to another retailer or are preparing for the OEM’s extension to your area, learning about the different metering options is a good start to your switching journey.

Monitoring your electricity consumption pattern and load helps meter reading authority and yourself, as consumers, in gauging your bill.
