Electricity bills are now only e-Bill / App / SMS
Ceylon Electricity Board has informed that due to the existing shortage of paper, the method of giving pre-printed bills which has been followed so far in issuing electricity bills will be changed.
Accordingly, several alternative methods of paying the electricity bill have been introduced.
1) By SMS
2) Through an app
3) By email
4) Thermal printed bills for those who do not understand the essentials or the above methods
The details are as follows.
By Short Message (SMS) — After reading the monthly bill, the monthly electricity bill will be sent to the telephone number registered with CEB through a short message (SMS). To register for this, you can get the support of the CEB representative who will visit the premises to read the meter. Or you can register yourself by sending a text message.

CEB Care Mobile App – The facility of receiving the bill after reading the monthly bill is also provided using the CEB Care friendly mobile app.
