The Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) is thrilled to announce the upcoming launch of the next phase of our e-Billing system, effective from the 01st of July, 2023.

During this phase, customers residing in the Dehiwala, Kelaniya, and Sri Jayewardenepura 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.

CEB also encourage all customers nationwide to promptly register for this convenient service, as the issuance of printed paper bills will gradually be suspended in the coming months.
