How to Pay Your Electricity Bills Online and Via USSD

How do you pay your electricity bills if you’re unable to do so at a bank?

That’s a pertinent question for people who have been caught up in a lockdown (like the one announced in response to the coronavirus pandemic), or who are unable to cover the distance between where they are and their local DisCo’s cash office.

The obvious way to do this would be to pay online. But what if you don’t know what channels to pay through?

That’s a problem that this article solves. Here, we’ll share the alternative means through which you can pay your electricity bills to the DisCo in charge of the electricity supply in your area. These methods include online channels and mobile USSD.
