DBS launches Electricity Marketplace

DBS today announced the launch of the DBS Electricity Marketplace which will allow all households in Jurong (residents with postal code of 60, 61, 62, 63 and 64) to seamlessly switch to other retailers with the liberalisation of the retail electricity market in Singapore. Around 108,000 households in Jurong will stand to benefit in this pilot phase.

As a start, DBS is working with two electricity retailers – iSwitch and Keppel Electric. During the pilot phase, all households in Jurong can search for various price plans that best suit their electricity needs on the DBS Electricity Marketplace. For DBS/POSB customers, they can apply directly with just a few simple clicks via DBS/POSB digibank and choose their preferred payment options. Once the switch is done, customers can look forward to their selected electricity plans provided by their new electricity retailer, without any service disruption.
