In Singapore, the one who is in charge to distribute the electricity through nation is Singapore Power Services (SP Services). The company provides electricity andgastransmission, distribution services, and market support services to more than a million customers in Singapore. It is one of the largest corporations in Singapore. Singapore Power was first incorporated as a commercial entity in October 1995 as Singapore Power and Gas, but because the abbreviation of that name (SPG) had negative connotations, it was quickly changed to Singapore Power, it was created to take over the electricity and gas businesses of the state provider, thePublic Utilities Board. Since 1995,Temasek Holdingscontrols the entire company with a 100% stake.
