BTOHQ Exclusive Promo with Tuas Power: A Step-by-Step Guide to Get Your Utilities Set Up for Your New Home

by Laura Lim

If you have just picked up the keys to your new home, congratulations! Before embarking on the excitement of designing and renovating that perfect home, you might want to consider opening an SP utilities account – electricity, water, and gas – to get your home up and running!

Feeling clueless about how to proceed? Read on for our simple breakdown on what you should do.

Start by Opening Your Utilities Account with Singapore Power (SP)

SP is synonymous with all things to do with utilities in Singapore. So, whether you are getting a BTO, resale or other residential properties, this is a step everyone who owns a property will need to go through!

Here are the simple steps to getting your very own SP Group Utilities account:

  1. Choose to go about in any of the following three ways:
    ● In Person: SP Customer Service Centre – you can do it conveniently in person while you collect your keys at HDB hub
    ● Online: Via the SP Utilities Portal (website) or their mobile app

  2. Fill up your application and also prepare the following relevant documents which will be required:
    ● Copy of NRIC or FIN (front and back)
    ● Proof of occupancy of premises – e.g. Tenancy agreement or property tax slip – basically anything to prove you are staying at that address

  3. Make payment for an initial security deposit – find out how much!

  4. Wait patiently for an email or mobile update to confirm your account is ready – usually between 1 – 3 business days. Once ready, you can schedule an appointment to turn on your electricity, water, and gas supply – this is when technicians will come down to do inspections before they activate the supply. And viola, you have a home with running electricity, water, and gas – ready to live in!

Note: Some HDB BTOs could already have their electricity and water turned on for them. Nonetheless, you will still need to get your SP account otherwise the supply will be stopped.
