Step 2: Select the Phase Type
The second step is to select your phase type. Lahore Electric Supply Company categorizes its consumers into different phases based on their geographic location and the electricity distribution network. These phases help in managing the supply and distribution of electricity effectively. Here are the commonly used phases in LESCO billing
Single-phase connections are typically provided to residential consumers and small businesses. They have two wires—one live (phase) wire and one neutral wire. Single-phase connections are suitable for lower power requirements and are commonly found in homes, small shops, and offices.
Three-phase connections are designed to meet the higher power demands of commercial and industrial consumers. They consist of three live (phase) wires and one neutral wire. Three-phase connections are more stable and capable of handling larger electrical loads. They are commonly used by factories, large commercial establishments, and industrial units.
Step 3: Units Consumed
To get your estimated amount, you have to enter the number of units that you have consumed on previous days or the previous month. You will get your bill after entering the units.
In LESCO billing system, the unit consumed refers to the amount of electrical energy (measured in kilowatt-hours, kWh) used by a consumer during a specific billing period. It represents the total energy consumption over a given period, typically a month.
Step 4: Meter Rent
Enter your meter rent if it applies to your Tariff.
Meter rent refers to a nominal fee charged by the Lahore Electric Supply Company for the rental of the electricity meter installed at the consumer’s premises. The meter rent is a recurring charge added to the electricity bill to cover the cost of maintaining and servicing the meter.
The meter rent amount can vary based on the type of consumer (residential, commercial, industrial) and the metering arrangement. The specific meter rent charges applicable to each consumer category are determined by LESCO and are included in the tariff structure.
Step 5: Service Rent
Just like meter rent, you must enter service rent if it applies to your tariff.
The service rent refers to a fee charged by the Lahore Electric Supply Company for providing and maintaining the electricity distribution infrastructure and services. It is a recurring charge included in the LESCO bill to cover the costs associated with maintaining the distribution network and ensuring the reliable supply of electricity.
The service rent amount can vary based on the consumer category (residential, commercial, industrial) and the type of connection. It is determined by company and is included in the tariff structure.
Step 6: Arrears
Enter arrears amount in the LESCO bill calculator. This amount is mentioned on your bill; if there is no arrears amount mentioned, then put zero and proceed to the next step.
Arrears refer to outstanding or unpaid amounts that a consumer owes to the Lahore Electric Supply Company. Arrears can accumulate when a consumer fails to make timely payments for their electricity bills or when they have outstanding dues from previous billing cycles.
Arrears can occur due to various reasons, such as missed payments, late payments, or disputes regarding bill calculations. If these amounts remain unpaid, they are considered arrears and are carried forward to subsequent billing cycles until they are settled.
Step 7: No TV sets
In this step, you have to enter the number of the TV you are using on the LESCO connection. The number of TV sets determines the usage of electricity in particular month.
Step 8: Tax Exemption
There are a few more options that would be given to you, so you have to check or un-check them.
