Always here for you

Life should be free of interruption. But when it happens, we know what it means for you to have things back to normal without delay.

Our officers stand by 24/7 to respond immediately, should electricity or gas supply be disrupted, regardless of the cause. Our priority is always to restore supply as safely and quickly as possible so that inconvenience to customers is minimised.

Singapore’s power network is ranked one of the most reliable in the world. In 2016/17, customers experienced an average of 0.25 minute of electricity interruption. That year, 98 per cent of all electricity interruptions were restored within just 2 hours, and 90 per cent in an hour.

Our officers stand by at major events, like National Day Parade 2017, to ensure reliable power supply.
