2.1.3.1 Processing Of Application
Generally, SPSL responds to applications within 10 business days. The
responses are made according to the following customer categories:
2.1.3.1.1 Contestable Customer
A Consumer Connection Agreement, containing the service connection
charge payable, the offer letter and the standard terms and conditions
with respect to the distribution service connection.
If a substation is required, a letter stipulating the requirements will be
forwarded to the customer, and an Agreement offered after the substations
plans are endorsed.
2.1.3.1.2 Non-Contestable Customer
A Quotation, containing service connection charge payable and the
conditions of service with respect to the distribution service connection.
If a substation is required, a letter stipulating the requirements will be
forwarded to the customer. A Supply Agreement, including the service
connection charge payable and the terms and conditions with respect to
the distribution service connection, is offered after the substations plans
are endorsed.
2.1.3.2 Commencement Of Work
PowerGrid commences work only when the Agreement has been signed
and received by SPSL, together with payment of service connection
charges.
2.1.4 Types Of Premises
2.1.4.1 Multi-Metered Premises
2.1.4.1.1 A multi-metered premises is one where the landlord/MCST (i.e. a master-
metered consumer or directly connected consumer) receives bulk intake
service connection from PowerGrid, and transforms/reticulates the supply
to all the tenants (i.e. sub-metered consumers) within the premises. Any
application for new or modified connection (including upgrading) for the
bulk intake to the multi-metered premises must be made by the landlord
through its LEW.
A master-metered consumer means a consumer that is responsible for the
common usage of a master-metered installation which is connected to the
transmission system.
A master-metered installation means an installation in which supply is
received by a master-metered consumer and sub-metered consumers.
L 13
A pplication For Load C onnection
A sub-metered consumer means a consumer, other than a master-metered
consumer, that receives supply in a master-metered installation via the
electrical system owned by a master-metered consumer.
2.1.4.1.2 The landlord/MCST or HDB, in the case of HDB premises, must ensure that
the total applied load requirement for service connections to the multi-
metered premises meet the total existing and future load requirements for
all tenants. All tenants applying for any upgrading of load must do so through
their master-metered consumer. In this regard, the master-metered consumer
must approve the load of all tenants within the premises.
2.1.4.1.3 If the landlords existing approved load is insufficient to cater for the tenants
load requirement, the landlord, as a master-metered consumer, must submit
an application to SPSL for modification (upgrading) of service connection
to the exi sti ng premi ses. In thi s case, the exi sti ng servi ce cabl es are
amalgamated with the new intake. Hence, there will not be separate direct
connections to the tenants of such premises.
2.1.4.2 Premises In Private Housing, Industrial Estates, Commercial Developments
Requiring Provision Of Low Voltage (LV) Distribution Network
2.1.4.2.1 For connection to premises where several parcels of land are to be sold or
leased individually, one or more substations must be provided by the
developer. Where the individual parcels of land are to be sold prior to
development of these substations, details of the substation requirements and
approved load must be included in the sales agreement by the future land
parcels owner or lessee.
2.1.4.2.2 The developer must provide the developments total load requirement and
include the breakdown of the individual premises load requirement (as
specified in the sales agreement) and the communal load requirement, if
applicable.
2.1.4.2.3 In the case of landed housing estate development, the LEW must liaise with
National Parks Board for the siting of overground distribution boxes on turfed
areas. PowerGrid will provide and install the LV distribution network and
service connection cables for the development.
2.1.4.3 Premises Involving Temporary Connection With Provision Of Substation
2.1.4.3.1 Special terms and conditions apply in such cases for temporary connection
to construction worksites and other temporary premises. The term granted
for temporary connection is usually 24 months.
2.1.4.3.2 Where there is a need for the provision of a temporary substation, the
customer must provide the site and construct the structure of the substation
according to the requirements of PowerGrid.
L 14
A pplication For Load C onnection
2.1.4.3.3 There will be a need to install the necessary cables and equipment to facilitate
the temporary connection to the distribution network. The customer pays
outright costs for the cables and a monthly hiring charge for the use of the
equipment (including the cost of insuring the equipment) during the term
for temporary connection.
2.1.5 Provision Of Substation
2.1.5.1 When an application for load connection necessitates the provision of a
substation (See Appendices 9 & 10), a site must be provided and a substation
constructed by the customer at its own cost.
2.1.5.2 The customer is advised to site the substation at an inconspicuous location,
away from the main entrance of the development and major public roads.
The customer is also encouraged to harmonise, blend and integrate the
substation with its development.
2.1.5.3 PowerGrids officers and vehicles will have full and unrestricted access to
the substation.
2.1.6 Types Of Service Connection Cables
The types of cables for service connection is shown in Appendix 36. In the
event that the customer is required to supply and install the cables, the
customers LEW has to seek consent from PowerGrid if the cables are different
from the list shown in Appendix 36.
2.2 TRANSMISSION CONNECTION
2.2.1 Consultation
2.2.1.1 A customer may choose to seek preliminary comments from PowerGrid via
the connection consultation process before submitting a formal application.
This practice is encouraged as incorporating PowerGrids requirements in a
developers preliminary proposal would expedite the application process at
a later stage.
2.2.1.2 To initiate the connection consultation process, the customer has to submit
the Consultation Form (Appendix 2) through an LEW to PowerGrid.
L 15
A pplication For Load C onnection
2.2.2 Application
The following are steps in the application for service connection:
2.2.2.1 The customer submits the Application Form (Appendix 1) through an LEW
to SPSL.
2.2.2.2 A connection proposal, duly endorsed by the PSO, is given to the customer.
It outlines the connection scheme, connection voltage, connection equipment
and facilities required of the customer and the estimated connection charges.
PowerGrid endeavors to respond to the customer, through SPSL, within 60
business days and 100 business days for 66kV connections and 230kV
connections respectively.
2.2.2.3 Where the application requires the provision of an EHV substation, the
customer must adhere to the general requirements attached in Appendix 17.
2.2.2.4 Once the customer acknowledges acceptance of PowerGrids connection
proposal , PowerGri d proceeds to execute the Consumer Connecti on
Agreement through SPSL. The Agreement contains an offer letter, the standard
terms and conditions associated with the connection and an estimation of
the connection charges.
2.2.3 Lead-Time For Application Of Transmission Connection
2.2.3.1 The timely provision of electricity supply to a development involves the
joint efforts of SPSL, PowerGrid, and the customer and their agents, such as
the LEW. While SPSL and PowerGrid will make every effort to engineer and
implement the connection scheme, it is at the same time essential for the
new customers and their agents to co-operate via timely submission of
applications and plans, timely acceptance of the terms and conditions of
connection and compliance with the necessary PowerGrid or Transmission
Code requirements.
L 16
A pplication For Load C onnection
2.2.3.2 As a guide for the customer and their agents, the normal lead-times for the
events leading to the energisation of 66kV service connections are listed in
the box below. The actual lead-time to energisation may vary for each
connection, depending on the actual service cable length and the progress
of intermediate events leading to completion of service connection works.
Customers will be informed accordingly either at the point of application or
at any time a review is required. For 230kV service connections, the customer
will be informed of the lead-time only at the point of application.

3.1 CONSUMER CONNECTION AGREEMENT
3.1.1 All customers are required to enter into a Consumer Connection Agreement
with PowerGrid and to pay Use of System (UOS) charges. Customers having
a direct connection to the transmission system must also pay a service
connecti on charge. For non-contestabl e customers, the Connecti on
Agreement is part of the Supply Agreement.
3.1.2 The Consumer Connection Agreement for customers taking HV supply at
6.6kV/22kV or EHV supply at 66kV/230kV will, inter alia, state the Contracted
Capacity, which is deemed to be the requirements for a period of five years.
Customers cannot reduce their Contracted Capacity until the expiration of
the 5-year period or additional 5-year period. Further, a customer who
terminates the supply agreement during the 5-year period or additional 5-
year period will be required to pay PowerGrid through SPSL/Retailer, the
Contracted Capacity Charge for the unexpired portion of the 5-year period.
3.1.3 UOS charges are payments for the use of the transmission services. The UOS
charges are paid for electricity consumption at each metered intake supply
point in accordance with the voltage at which a customer receives the

tension (EHT: 66kV).
3.2.3 Low Tension (LT) Supply
LT customers pay charges based only on energy (kWh units) supplied to an
installation. The supply is charged at a flat rate for each kWh delivered at
each metered intake supply point.
3.2.4 High Tension (HT)/Extra High Tension (EHT) Supply
HT and EHT customers pay charges calculated from tariffs based on the
Contracted Capacity Charge, Usage Charge, Uncontracted Capacity Charge
and Reactive Power Charge.
3.2.4.1 The Contracted Capacity Charge payable by customers to SPSL is based on
kW Contracted Capacity. The Contracted Capacity Charge is calculated as
follows:
Contracted Capacity Charge = Customers Contracted Capacity x
Contracted Capacity Rate
3.2.4.2 The Usage Charge payable by the customers to SPSL is based on kWh of
electricity supplied. The Usage Charge is calculated as follows:
3.2.4.2.1 For Peak Period
Usage Charge = kWh consumed during the Peak Period x Peak Period Rate
3.2.4.2.2 For Off-Peak Period
Usage Charge = kWh consumed during the Off-Peak Period x
Off-Peak Period Rate
3.2.4.3 The Uncontracted Capacity Charge, which is based on the customers excess
kW demand, is payable if in any month the customers actual kW maximum
demand exceeds its Contracted Capacity. The Uncontracted Capacity Charge
is calculated based on the following:
Uncontracted Capacity Charge =(kW maximum demand Contracted
Capacity) x Uncontracted Capacity Rate
L 19
Transm ission C harges
3.2.4.4 The Reactive Power Charge, which is based on the customers excess kVArh,
is payable if in any month the customers kVArh consumption exceeds 62%
of its kWh consumption. The Reactive Power Charge is calculated based on
the following:
Reactive Power Charge =(kVArh 62% of kWh) x Reactive Power Rate
3.3 USE OF SYSTEM (UOS) CHARGES FOR CONTESTABLE CUSTOMERS
Contestable customers pay UOS charges for transmission services at each
metered intake supply point in accordance with the voltage at which the
customers receive the electricity supply.
UOS charges are subject to change and these changes will be published by
PowerGrid from time to time.
3.3.1 Low Tension (LT) Supply
LT supply is metered on energy (kWh units). LT supply for contestable
customers attract UOS charges based onl y on energy suppl i ed to an
installation. The supply is charged at a flat rate for each kWh delivered at
each metered intake supply point.
3.3.2 High Tension (HT), Extra High Tension (EHT) And
Ultra High Tension (UHT: 230kV and above) Supply
For HT, EHT and UHT supply, each metered intake supply point attracts its
own UOS charges as follows:
a) a Contracted Capacity Charge,
b) a Peak Period Charge,
c) an Off-Peak Period Charge,
d) a Reactive Power Charge, and
e) (i) an Uncontracted Capacity Charge, and
(ii) an Uncontracted Standby Capacity Charge (only for customers with

3.3.2.1.1 The Contracted Capacity Charge is a monthly charge for the Contracted
Capacity at each metered intake supply point of a customer. The Contracted
Capacity of a metered intake supply point is the total supply capacity in kW
requested by the customer.
3.3.2.1.2 For a new supply, the Contracted Capacity is deemed to be the customers
requirement for a binding period of 5 years. This period starts from the target
date or the date PowerGrids plant and equipment, except for the service
cable, are available to provide such Contracted Capacity, whichever is the
later.
For new HT, EHT and UHT supply, the minimum Contracted Capacity for
each metered intake supply point shall be as follows:
HT with 1 or 2 feeders 1,700kW
HT with 3 or more feeders 12,750kW
EHT 25,500kW
UHT 85,000kW
For new supply, a request may be made for intermediate steps before the full
Contracted Capacity is implemented during the first year of the 5-year binding
period. The first step will be at least one quarter of the customers full
Contracted Capacity at each metered intake supply point.
3.3.2.1.3 After the 5-year period, the Contracted Capacity at each metered intake supply
point may be reduced subject to the following minimum values:
HT with 1 or 2 feeders 850kW
HT with 3 or more feeders 6,375kW
EHT 12,750kW
UHT 42,500kW
Any revision of the Contracted Capacity after the 5-year period will apply
for a minimum binding period of 1 year.
3.3.2.1.4 For a new development with landlord and tenants, the supply capacity
required by the landlord himself must meet the minimum values set out in

1 Service Connection Charges for Low Voltage (LV) Connection
A ll LT consum ers are required to pay a one-tim e upfront service connection charge. These charges w hich vary for
different load requirem ents are categorised depending on the provision of a substation.
For larger consum ers w ith substations, their supply intake point is usually adjacent to the substation, w hich requires a
service cable of approxim ately 15m in m ost instances. Therefore, the standard connection charge is com puted based
on a cost of service cable length of 15m . C onsum ers shall pay the additional cost for service cable exceeding 15m . In
addition, consum ers shall also pay for those dedicated assets, such as sw itchgear and transform ers, w hich are serving
them and do not benefit others.
For individual sm all consum ers w ithout substations, the cost of LT service cable for the sam e capacity m ay vary w idely
depending on their locations w ith respect to the nearest LT m ains. These consum ers are not the sole beneficiaries of the
extension of the LT netw ork. To achieve a greater degree of equity in term s of cost for these general consum ers, a
standard cost approach is adopted based on sim ilar requirem ents. The average global cost based on capacity is
determ ined from past statistics. A s such, this category of consum ers w hich com prises m ainly the individual landed
residential ow ners, applying for the sam e applied load w ould pay the sam e standard connection charge regardless of
the location of their prem ises from the existing LT netw ork.
Standard charges are only applicable to consum ers w ho are connected to the shared netw ork. The rates, w hich are
approved by EM A , are available in the Transm ission Services R ate Schedule. Standard charges are not applicable to
consum ers w here the netw ork created is unlikely to be shared by others. Som e of these include supply to H D B prem ises,
tem porary w ork sites, public installations and offshore island prem ises. These consum ers w ould have to pay for the full
connection netw ork cost, based on user-pay principle, as they are the m ain beneficiaries.
2 Service Connection Charges for HV and EHV Connection
C ustom ers receiving H V and EH V connection shall pay the cost of the service connections to their intake equipm ent
including cables, associated equipm ent and facilities to effect the connection of custom ers equipm ent to Pow erG rids
substation/netw ork. The service connection shall cater for single contingency.
C ustom ers requesting for additional level of contingency above single contingency are required to pay for the full cost of
such provision.
3 Dedicated Network/Substation
The custom er shall pay the full cost for all associated equipm ent and facilities under a dedicated netw ork/substation
schem e w hich the netw ork capacity is intended to serve to its developm ent exclusively.
