In Azerbaijan it is usually the owner who is responsible for the electricity connections of his home. If you are a tenant you can also set up the electricity connection if necessary, however this is not the norm. If you have to set up the electricity connection in your newly rented home you have to take the following documents to the Baku Elecrtirc Shabaka:
- Passport/relevant ID
- Rental Agreement
- The owner’s permission
The power supply in Azerbaijan is provided by AzerEnergy, and in Baku's districts by Baki Elektrik Shebeke.

Paying electricity bill
Buildings in Baku either have a pre or post paid electricity connection.
Prepaid meters – the prepaid meters should be paid for in advance. They work with smartcards. The smartcard reader is free of charge. It is the responsibility of the tenant to ensure that there is enough credit on the smart card in order for the electricity.
Postpaid meters – At the end of each month the meter will be read and you will be sent a bill for the electricity. If you do not pay this bill within one month of receiving it your electricity may be cut off.
