CEB launches e-Billing System replacing traditional printed paper bills

The Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) announces the upcoming launch of the next phase of their e-Billing system, effective from the 01st of July, 2023.

"We also 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<space>followed by your A/C Number and send it to 1987. To register online, visit and follow the instructions.

"We request your cooperation to ensure the successful implementation of the e-Billing system."

This initiative is expected to save approximately 100 million sheets of paper annually.
