You live at the Sail and you worry about the cost of your electricity, what about hte cost of your rent ;) :shock: :shock:

We have a 1300sqft apartment, our bill is anywhere between $350 and $500 a month, we cook every day, have aircon on (3 units) every night.

It's not cheap, but as stated above, it's value in comparison to British Gas in the UK IMO. I was 199GBP a month over there

I'm wondering if I could get some advice on the electricity bill (or maybe similar experiences). Is there a premium price for electricity within the CBD? I live in a studio unit, although we have 3 air conditioning units, we only use one, only at night-time from around 11p to 8a, and we keep it on economical mode. Also, we turn off the water-heater, except from around 7pm to 11pm at night. I also keep my computers off when I'm out, and lights off. Yet, each month our electricity bill is around $220-$280. We've tried everything to keep the bill down. We hear friends who also live at condos, they keep the aircon on all the time, but the bill never even hits $150. I'm wondering if anyone could provide some advice, or is it possible that there is a mistake at SP services in reading the meter?

Thanks!
Hello, the rate is the same no matter which part of Singapore you are in, check the residential rates here

SP Services reads the meter for 1 month and the next month is based on estimate.

For myself, I use aircon when I go to bed, and it indeed is contributing to the bulk of my utilities bill!!

If it is not too troublesome, I have a suggestion. Read your meter when you go to bed. Check again when you wake up in the morning and see if aircon is the culprit.
(On the SP website, go to FAQ -> How to read your meters)

Hopes this helps!!
