Campaign Report

 
 

I love spending some me time before bed, reading on my cozy sofa, under my LED energy efficient lamp. We are hoping to convert all our lights at home to LED lights and our electrical appliances to the energy saving ones. Eligible 4-roomers like us, will be receiving up to a total of $300 of GSTV U-Save rebate a year, paid out quarterly, automatically in our household utility account. . From this July, there is a permanent increase in the U-save quantum of between $40-$120. With the GSTV U-Save rebate, which is a permanent scheme, we are planning to use the cost savings to convert more of our home electric appliances into energy savings ones.

When we moved into our flat, we made it a point to have all LED lightings in our apartment. Comparing to incandescent or even flourescence lights, we can save much much more. Even though we turn on our air con every night, our utilities bill remains low compared to our Mom's place. Whats more, GST U-Save vouchers gave us a hand in paying our bills. Our utilities bill had a big fat 0 on it, we didn't even have to register for it. Its like Ah Gong give us Ang Bao early. Mine is a 4 room HDB flat so we're getting $75 rebates every 3 months. So for those of you living in HDB like almost everyone else, do check your mail box as you will be receiving the GST U-Save rebate this month! No sign ups are required and this is a permanent scheme!

In July, the rebate was increased by $40 to $120 depending on flat type. It is paid in January, April, July and October each year. .

Being HDB home owners, we are always looking forward to rebates and savings given by the government. Since July, the government had increased the GST U-Save rebate to help offset HDB homeowners’ utilities bills. This is definitely great news to us as being a household of 4 persons, we do have a substantial amount of utility bills to pay each month. Many HDB homeowners – from 1 room flat to exec/multi-gen flats – are entitled to the GST U-Save rebate. The total amount ranges from $220 – $380 each year, depending on the flat type. The rebate is paid over four quarters, and it is a permanent scheme. Also, there is no sign ups required. The amount is automatically credited to the utility account 👍🏼 In order to conserve energy, pls do not follow my bad example in this video. Do you know that the fridge consumes a large amount of electricity and if you are like me who loves to open and shut the fridge as and when, this would translate to a higher utility bill. Choose electrical appliances that has more green tick ratings as they have been tested to be energy efficient models.

I suppose this is the most cost efficient and practical way of making camping under the stars happen for your child. With additional perks of riding on the opportunity to educate her about energy conversation and sustainability of our resources. I think our country has done a good job on promoting this aspect by educating the public, but at the same time providing different tiers of GSTV U-Save rebates to meet differing household needs. • No sign-ups are required to receive the rebates; rebates will be automatically credited to the household utility account • GSTV U-Save is a permanent scheme. • U-Save rebate is paid out quarterly. • Permanent increase in U-Save quantum between $40-$120 from July 2017.
