General resident or domestic consumers are mostly urban/semi urban consumers living in pucca houses. As per the prevalent Electricity laws and Regulations formulated by OERC in Odisha, the following rules govern domestic categorisation of a consumer:
- Your connected load should be above 1 KW.
- If you avail power to your residential premises for domestic purposes only, which may include connected load for non-domestic purposes like offices, consulting chambers & other mixed loads up to 20% of the total connected load, then you will be categorized as domestic consumer.
- The decision of our Engineer in assessing Connected Load being used for Household Activities and Revenue earning activities will be binding and final.
