What Makes PacificLight Stand Out to Consumers?

PacificLight is one of the cheapest electricity retailers in Singapore, with a range of market leading plans. For example, PacificLight's fixed-rate contracts (which lock customers into a specific rate for 1-3 years), are also among the cheapest available in Singapore. Additionally, the electricity retailer's plans based on the regulated tariff offer a market leading discount of 25% for 12-month contracts. Similarly, for individuals who would prefer avoiding entering a contract, PacificLight offers Easy Peasy, which is the cheapest option for those seeking a plan with added flexibility.

Not only that, PacificLight's "green", Sunny Side-Up plan offers households the opportunity to earn complimentary Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) based on their consumption. Customers receive RECs because a portion of their bill is directed towards investment in renewable energy. RECs represent one megawatt hour (1,000kWh) of energy generated from a clean and renewable energy source. This plan is competitively priced, too. In fact, at 17.66¢ per kWh, it's among the cheapest plans available in Singapore.

However, while still cheaper than average, it is necessary to note that PacificLight's tariff discounted rates for 24-month contracts are not the best deals available in Singapore. Still, due to its other great plans, PacificLight is a great choice for most individuals seeking an electricity retailer. To further sweeten the deal, PacificLight is offering S$60 bill rebate with the promotion codes: 24VALUE$60 and 36VALUE$60.
