Electric Sub-meter Installation Request Letter to Electricity Board

Ref: Electricity connection consumer no. ........... area code .........

Dear Sir,

I have a building at (address), which is having (number) flats and those are rented to different tenants. The building has an electricity connection bearing consumer no. .................... area code .............. The bills are generally shared equally by the tenants. But, there have been disputes about it from time to time. In the absence of any sub-meters, it is very difficult for me to know the electricity consumption units of each tenant.

Hence, I am kindly requesting you for installation of (number) sub-meters at the same premises where the earlier meter is installed. I will be making necessary payments for the meters and installation charges upon receipt of the approval.

Kindly consider my application favorably.

Thanking you!

Yours faithfully,
