Lagos, Nigeria; August 28, 2019: Nigeria’s leading electricity distribution company, Ikeja Electric Plc (IE) has introduced its electronic billing (e-billing) platform, which enables customers to receive electricity bills promptly and conveniently, via channels such as SMS, USSD, email, IE Bill portal and IE mobile Application.

The e-billing initiative is in continuation of Ikeja Electric’s desire to leverage innovation and technology to improve customer experience. It is designed to deliver electronic bills directly to the customer thereby eradicating challenges such as misplaced bills or delayed delivery and other issues which are associated with the distribution of physical bills.
