On the web site of Elektroprivreda Srbije,
a new portal https://portal.eps.rs/ for downloading e-bills and for e-payment
has been put into operation today. The portal may be used by households and
small-scale electricity consumers under the guaranteed supply.
The portal enables fast and easy
downloading and preview of e-bills as soon as the monthly charge is prepared,
before printing and distribution. An archive for bills and payments for the
past three years is also available there, as well as a comprehensive overview
of consumption per zones and tariffs.
- By putting the new portal into operation,
we continue with modernization and improvement of our operations within the
scope of relationships with our customers. It is now easier for customers to
access their electricity bills and to get much useful information in one place.
It is also planned, early in 2024, in the next phase of digitalization, to have
an application for mobile phones “Bill Check” - said Mr. Dušan Živković, Acting
Director of Elektroprivreda Srbije.
The users of the portal may safely and
quickly pay their bill without visiting payment offices, via the instant
payments system (IPS Scan) and bank cards such as Dina, Visa and MasterCard. The
fee per transaction is less in comparison to one paid at banks and post
offices, it is RSD 28.77 and it does not go to EPS funds. Registration and
signing-in to the portal is simple, as well as its use.
Citizens may monitor their monthly
consumption on the portal and already within their bill for October they may easily
and quickly see whether they have made any saving and how much they have saved.
- Saving is not waiving, but adopting good
and useful habits to consume electricity only as much as we need it, not to
waste it - Mr. Živković explained and reminded that both the state and EPS
stimulate rational consumption through discounts.
For households that reduce their
electricity consumption during this heating period, EPS will grant a discount
between 20 to 40 percent for their monthly bill, and this is more than it was
in last year’s winter. Households that reduce their consumption by 5 to 15
percent in comparison to the same month last year in which the consumption was
greater, will have a 20 percent discount.
For savings between 15 and 20 percent, the reduction is 25 percent, and
for saving between 20 and 25 percent, a 30 percent discount will be calculated.
For households that reduce their electricity consumption by 25 to 30 percent,
the discount will be 35 percent, while the greatest discount of 40 percent will
be granted to those who reduce their consumption by more than 30 percent.
Along with discounts for paying their bills
in time, EPS will also calculate a 5 percent discount for households if they
increase a share of the low tariff consumption in their monthly bill by at
least five percent in comparison to the same month in 2022.
