Letter to the Electricity Department Requesting for Installation of a Sub-Meter


The Assistant Engineer,

Re: Request for installation of a sub-meter


Dear Sir,

This is to inform you that I am residing at the above premises as a tenant. The landlord has only one meter in his house. In absence of another meter I am paying electricity charges to the landlord on percentage basis which has been arbitrarily decided and I have become a loser as the electricity charge which is being paid to him by me is not on actual consumption basis.

Since the landlord is not willing to get another meter installed in his premises, he has advised me to go for a sub-meter.

I would, therefore, request you to arrange for installation of a sub-meter at the above premises at the very earliest so as to facilitate me to pay the electricity charges to the landlord on actual consumption basis. Please inform me per return the required amount to be deposited with your department for the sub-meter.


Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,
(Your Name)
