During 2022, CEB was unable to settle the payment for Rooftop Solar customers in total due to severe financial difficulties faced by CEB mainly due to non availability of a cost reflective tariff.  However, with the implementation of cost reflective tariff on 15th February 2023, CEB managed to commence settlement of monthly bills from internal cash generation and accumulated arrears by raising loans from financial institutions despite the fact that settlement of previous debt is not included in the tariff. CEB is happy that now we managed to settle all due arrears up to April 2023.
