EAC Payment - Paying the electricity bill in Cyprus

Expats & Business | Updated: 25. Apr 2023

The topic of electricity is also becoming more and more important in Cyprus. Here, just like in any other country in Europe, there has been a price increase recently. So that there is no rude awakening and how and where you can pay your electricity bill, we explain in the following paragraphs.

Registering and paying the electricity bill with the electricity supplier, how does it work?

To register electricity, you only need the rental contract, your identity card or passport and 200 € as a deposit. To register electricity, you must appear in person. 

If you want to register electricity, you first have to draw a number, as known from many German offices. When it is your turn, you present the rental contract as well as your ID. Once you are done with the registration, you go to the cashier and leave 200 euros as a deposit.

Usually, the electricity will be activated on the same day. You will receive the invoice, provided you enter your e-mail address, either through here or by mail. You simply transfer the bill via the portal https://www.jccsmart.com/e-bill/17033028. For this you need an e-mail address and a password.

Electricity costs in Cyprus, a significant portion of ongoing costs

The good thing about electricity in Cyprus is that there is only one supplier. The price for electricity is also fixed. Unfortunately, electricity in Cyprus is still produced the old-fashioned way. Tankers deliver oil, which is then burned in the power plant. Since electricity is needed in most houses and apartments to heat water, especially in winter, the bill can go up quite a bit, depending on consumption. You will usually receive the bill every 2 months. Depending on the size of the apartment and your electricity consumption, a bill between 300 and 500 euros is normal. 

Since most properties do not have central heating, the cost of electricity for air conditioning rises sharply, especially in the months of December to March.

What are the power outlets in Cyprus?

To power electrical appliances from Germany in Cyprus, you need the "British 3-Pin" with 3 slots, where the upper opening is a kind of fuse that only allows current to flow when this contact pin is inserted.

Since there is no difference to Germany in terms of current and voltage, you can connect all electrical appliances as usual.

Tip: If a voltage transformer is necessary for the use of electrical appliances, you will find instructions on the label on the plug.
