    "Chope" the Rate 24m

    Been about 11 months since signing up with them and still have not receive their "promised" free air-con servicing till today. I feel they don't have any customer service retention mentality and don't treat customer's feedback seriously. Probably considering another company after contract although saving about 20-25% per month.

    Smooth transition from SP Power to them, but I hope they would reply to some queries at a quicker pace. But any OEM retailer is more enticing than SP!

  • My bills aren't necessarily lower than usual before the switch so I think consumers should do more homework on which company they want to sign up for.

    I would give it a zero star if there was one. The customer service was horrible and the advertising was misleading, intentionally leaving out the monthly service fees from the published rate only to hide it in the fine prints. Why is there a need to hide this if the company is transparent. I also dare not leave my one-month deposit with them (remember the shared bicycles?). They will charge you $100 when you realize about the service fees and want to cancel even on the same day. It is unfair to the elderly and less privileged. I really hope the authorities will step-in because we don't need such companies preying and lurking among us in a market that is supposed to be transparent and fair competition.

    Hey! When did you sign up? I currently don't see any service fee in the T&C and factsheet. Thanks

    It was very simple and easy to sign up my account with I Switch online. I enjoyed huge savings on my electricity bills and have a very positive experience with I Switch. Have recommended a few friends to sign up with I Switch and so far, they are happy with my recommendations.

    The electricity market can be quite daunting at first especially there are so many to compare. In my opinion, the friendliness of the sales staff and their patience is the most important, and for that I Switch is fantastic! Highly recommended!

It depends on seasonal Promotion and Conditions rates. I still remember that previously months before my subscription, Sembcorp was the perfect fit for me with generous promotion rate but days before my application, it happens that Geneco gave the best rates and conditions compared to Sembcorp. . After all, these companies are still under one parent company. No worries about shortages of electrical supply but do worry about your monthly bills. . Just a heads up for newbie: 1. Check the best rates among the retailers. 2. Compare their promotion discounts offered. 3. Check the term and condition if the contract is 'Fixed' or 'Non-Fixed' contact. Go for Fixed. 4. Do your calculations. Make sure the bills saves you money. . Good luck.

Imagine they are our different telco. M1, Starhub, Singtel etc. Or our Banks (DBS, UOB, OCBC, Standchart etc) offering mortgage loan. There are offering the same thing, but just different pricing terms. In short, the plans can be summarised into 2 main type. One is fixed price (imagine fixed interest rate loan), and another is variable (imagine floating rate interest based on sibor). The variable will be usually a discount( x %) off the regulated tarrif (sibor) rate that the rest of singaporeans are paying now. For actual plan comparision, see the official site. https://compare.openelectricitymarket.sg/#/home

Well prices are similar, the only thing u can do is to weigh the pros and cons of other stuff, such as whether its same bill, hidden fees, promotions, trustworthiness of the company transparency of billing, etc. Hope that helps :)

My general rule of thumb is to choose companies that are 1)big well established companies(e.g. companies with their own power generation factories like tuas, keppel etc. 2)trustworthy 3) transparent in their billing/fees and also for some who wish more convinience , maybe choose ones that are the same SP bill. Hope that helps:)

With such limited information provided it is hard to give you a accurate respond or solution. As many factors can be contributing to the increse in electricity bill and not necessary kwh consumption. Plus at the point of signing up with the retailer if it is not done online but with the representative , he/she have to explain clearly before signup as required by the EMA .

There's a monthly service fee $5.30 (incl of GST) hidden in the fact sheets!!! Most of their plan has it: https://iswitch.com.sg/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/3.-iSwitch-Fact-SheetChope-the-Rate24-MonthsNon-StandardWebsite140119.pdf ! So this will makes iSwitch no longer the cheapest... In fact, adding it with their lowest rates makes it not worth it anymore ...

FAQS

How to switch to iSwitch?

One must first check their eligibility to switch, followed by price plan selection, then proceed with online sign-up. There are no registration fees required.

Will my electricity be disrupted when I do decide to switch?

No, you will not experience disruption as you would be switching retailers, not supply.

Is there a service charge?

Yes, a monthly charge of $4.95 (before GST) will be charged for maintenance of the IT systems and infrastructure. This charge is kept separately from the electricity rate for your monthly consumption, to ensure that your electricity rate remains competitive. This fee is applicable to Non-Standard plans.

How long does it take to process my application?

Within 10 days for residential consumers to transfer your electricity account from SP (non-market) to iSwitch (market).

Does iSwitch require a deposit?

HDB 1-3 room ($30)

HDB 4-5 room ($60)

Condo to landed property ($90)

The initial deposit will be charged to your first invoice. A subsequent adjustment may be required using customer’s actual average electricity consumption within the first 3 months to equate to one month bill.

Effectively your security deposit will equate to 1 month’s electricity bill.

Your security deposit with SP Group cannot be transferred.

How will I be billed?

You will receive a separate e-bill from iSwitch for your home electricity.

You can download your bill at your convenience as you sign into the iSwitch Customer Portal.

No hardcopy bill will be provided by iSwitch

Do I have to change my meter if I switch to iSwitch?

No. But if you do decide to switch from an analogue to an AMI meter, there will be a one-time installation fee of $40 per AMI meter (exclusive of GST).
