If not, Singaporeans might take it for granted.
This after Singapore is set to increase electricity tariffs by 6.1 percent for the next three months to raise awareness of its importance, as the only way to know something is important is if it is expensive.
One Singaporean, Hor Ley Pee, said: “Sometimes Singaporeans take electricity for granted. It is good to remind them that electricity is important and the only way to draw their attention to it is to increase the overall cost.”
“If the price goes up, the importance goes up as well.”
“The greater the pinch, the higher up the priority list.”
Other locals said it is important to increase the price of electricity.
Another local, Mai Huan Loh, said: “Just because the PAP logo is a lightning bolt does not mean Singaporeans can get electricity cheaply.”
“Everything has a price. Even when lightning in Singapore is omnipresent.”
