Things required to check your QESCO bill online

First of all, you’d need to have a stable internet connection and a supporting device like a smartphone, desktop, etc. In addition to these essentials, you need to have exact information about your reference number or consumer ID. 

The reference number is basically a 14-digit code that is allotted uniquely to every consumer by the corresponding electricity supply company. With this unique code, the company locates the consumer account and relevant information. On the other hand, consumer ID is a 10-digit code that is used to recognize every consumer. Both these entities are mentioned on the electricity bill. 

The reference number can be usually found in the top left corner, below the heading of TARIFF whereas the consumer ID is mentioned right next to the reference number. However, if, still, someone is unable to find this information on his electricity bill, he may consider visiting a nearby QESCO customer service center and ask the representative staff to help him out.
