The Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) has announced the implementation of the CEB e-Billing system for more areas.
Accordingly, customers residing in the Dehiwala, Kelaniya, Sri Jayewardenepura, Matara & Ambalangoda areas will exclusively receive their electricity bills in a digital format, either through SMS or email. This marks the discontinuation of the conventional practice of issuing printed paper bills.
"We encourage all our customers nationwide to promptly register for this convenient service, as the issuance of printed paper bills will gradually be suspended in the coming months," the CEB said.
To register via SMS, type REG followed by A/C Number and send it to 1987. To register online, visit http://ebill.ceb.lk and follow the instructions.
"We kindly request your attention and cooperation to ensure the successful implementation of the e-Billing system."
This initiative is expected to save approximately 100 million sheets of paper annually.
