What does contestable mean?
Contestable businesses are those who are eligible to buy electricity from retailers of their choice outside of SP Powers.
If your business has a monthly consumption of above 2,000kWh (equivalent to a monthly electricity bill of at least $400) and will be eligible to choose their electricity provider.
Check your eligibility here.
Am I eligible to switch?
Only contestable businesses can buy from Senoko today. Please refer to the
Open Electricity Market website to check the criteria to know your eligibility to make the switch.
Contestable businesses can buy from electricity retailers the same way they do today. When EMA officially liberalises the market, there will be additional approved electricity retailers for these businesses to buy from.
Businesses who are master-metered account holders for premises under the master/sub metering scheme. Such customers can only switch to become market consumers under En Bloc Contestability Scheme (EBS) or the Demand Aggregation Scheme (DAS).
If you are a contestable customer and are buying from an electrical retailer today, please ensure you have already fulfilled your contractual obligation.
How do I switch from SP to Senoko?

It will require around 30 business days for the process to be completed if there is a change of meter to AMI.
Will there be a disruption in my electrical supply?
The way electricity is physically supplied to your premise will not change. To switch to Senoko, we do not need to do any installation at your premise.
Unless there is a change of meter type, there will not be any disruption caused by a change of electrical retailer. For a change of meter, the disruption will be less than half an hour.
What will happen to my gas and water supply if I were to switch electricity retailers?
You will get a separate bill for your electricity charges from Senoko. Your gas and water supply will continue to be billed by your existing provider.
How do I pay my bills?
You can pay online at through your Senoko account portal using MasterCard or Visa, or through a physical AXS machines.
What’s the difference between an AMI meter and a SRLP Meter?
An AMI meter allows for a more accurate reading as it reads electrical consumption every half hourly, whereas the SRLP meter are read by MSSL every 2 month.
For AMI meter users, there will be a monthly AMI meter reading charge to be borne by users as an additional charge on top of the Senoko charges.
