To ensure uninterrupted supply of electricity, PESCO has divided the area of its jurisdiction into eight sub-regions:
- Hazara 1

If you haven’t received your WAPDA electricity bill, you have lost it or it got damaged, then there is nothing to worry about. You can get a duplicate copy of your PESCO bill online without having to go to the PESCO office. You can check your bill by entering your 14-digit reference number after a click on the “Get your PESCO Duplicate Bill” button below. You can pay your bill with a printed copy of this bill in any bank.
