Types of electricity generators in Singapore.

In the world, there are various electricity generators available and are set up. But in some countries, all the forms are not possible to build due to lack of resources. The major electricity generators that use renewable resources are steam turbines, hydroelectric generators and windmills.

Steam turbines operate on the steam produced by the nuclear reaction in a nuclear reactor power plant. Hydroelectricity uses the potential energy of the water to run the turbines. And in windmills wind is necessary to rotate the blades which generate the electricity.

As compared to other countries Singapore uses very less amount of electricity. Thus the prices are slightly less for the people residing there. The total electricity production is also in more amount.

The parts of electricity tariff Singapore is broken down into four major parts:

  • Fees of market administration and operation of the power system.
  • Fees for market service support.
  • Networking cost
  • Cost for the use of energy including the generation of electricity.

Out of the four parts, the maximum tariff is based on the energy cost, which is the general use of electricity by the public. Next is the networking cost which includes the cost for power supply to different routes. The third one is the market service and support fees. This is the retail services using the meters and making bills. The last one is the fees of market administration and operation of the power system. This takes up the last spot with a minimum share in the tariff.

The cost which is not included in the above list is the fuel cost, which is calculated by tallying the current natural gas price.
