Lahore Electric Supply Company is governmental machinery that provides electricity to commercial and residential areas. The bill is charged from the customers on the basis of units. We are going to discuss the Lesco bill unit rates 2020. These rates and tariffs are changed with the passage of time.
The bills are divided into multiple subtypes. The unit rate for each type is different. The types include Residential, Commercials, General Services, Industrial tariff, and temporary tariff. The per-unit rate of each of these types are different. In addition to this, the rate of per unit also varies with the increase in units.
You might be thinking that the lesco officials are doing some corrupt things which make the bill increase. There are certain peak times in a day. During that peak time, the rates are quite high. It means that you will be paying more money on the consumption of a single unit.
