The Energy Market Authority (EMA), the Ministry of the Environment, Water Resources (MEWR) and SP Group today announced three new initiatives aimed at empowering households to use electricity more efficiently. These initiatives are:
- Advanced meters that will give all household consumers access to their half-hourly electricity usage.
- Enhanced SP Utilities mobile app to help households track their energy consumption.
- Customised reports on households’ electricity consumption and energy saving tips.
As of end of September 2019, about 290,000 advanced meters have already been deployed at households across Singapore. The plan is to install smart meters in the remaining 1.1 million households within the next 5 years.
