Paying bills is an unavoidable part of life. In the spirit of making lemonade when life gives you lemons, it pays to find ways to lower your bills.
That’s where Singtel Power and Geneco comes in.
Geneco’s parent company is YTL PowerSeraya, who is one of the first and largest power generating companies in Singapore.
Unlike other electricity retailers, having its own power plant gives Geneco the ability to keep your electricity bills low for you each and every month. Their Get It Fixed 36 3-year plan is one of the most competitive 36-month electricity plans on the market in Singapore now.
But what’s even better, Singtel and Geneco have now teamed up to enable you to not only enjoy lower electricity bills but also receive exclusive Singtel discounts.
The electricity retailer scene being quite volatile means there may be a risk of going with smaller known retailers that may exit the market any time.
With established companies like Singtel Power and Geneco, you won’t be caught in a situation with having your chosen electricity provider closing down and leaving you in the lurch.
How much do Singtel Power’s electricity plans cost?
Here’s a rundown of the Geneco electricity plans available through Singtel Power.
|Name||Get It Fixed 36||Get It Fixed 24||Get It Less 24|
|Duration||36 months||24 months||24 months|
|Type||Fixed rate||Fixed rate||Percentage discount off regulated tariff|
|Price (including GST)||$17.78 per kWh||$17.78 per kWh||22% off regulated tariff|
|Other perks||–||Price match guarantee||–|
For fixed rate plans, you pay the same price regardless of fluctuations in the energy market. You can thus lock in a favourable rate for the duration of your contract.
With both the 24 month and 36 month plan, you can save 30% against the regulated tariff rate of 25.52 cents per kWh.

Switching electricity providers does not interrupt your electricity supply. The transition is designed to be quick and totally seamless. Your household will not even know you’ve made a switch if you don’t tell them.
All you have to do is sign up and then sit back while Singtel Power handles the transfer on their end. This process typically takes 2 to 4 weeks.
