What Do I Need to Apply for Service?


When connecting a service you will need:

  • Your government-issued identification card, passport or driver's Licence.
  • A security deposit to cover three months of electricity bills. This is normally required on all services except residential services for Barbadian residents.
  • The applicable service charge. Click here for fees and charges
  • An Electrical Inspection Certificate of Approval from the Government Electrical Engineering Department (GEED), Bay Street, St. Michael.

A GEED certificate is required if you are applying for:

  • The installation of a new service.
  • The reconnection of an existing service that has been disconnected for more than six (6) months.
  • The reconnection of an existing service for which the wiring has been modified.

Requirements for Businesses/Charitable Organizations: 

Applications made on behalf of a company, organisation or any other entity should be signed by a person authorized to act on that entity's behalf and be either accompanied by a certificate of Registration or Incorporation and a covering letter or stamped with the Company's official stamp.

Payment of all bills on a service shall be the responsibility of the person signing the application unless the application is made by a person authorized to sign on behalf of a company, organisation or other entity registered under the Laws of Barbados in which case the bills will be the responsibility of the Company, organisation or entity.
