Electricity contracts and moving – Tips and tricks

Termination of your old electricity contract

Please remember to terminate your old electricity contract when moving. It will not be terminated automatically when you make a new electricity contract or move out. You can easily terminate your agreement by contacting us.

If you forget to terminate the old electricity contract, the electricity bill will be sent to you until the contract is terminated. Without separate termination, the old contract expires when a new resident enters into a new electricity contract for the apartment.

Fixed-term electricity contracts and moving

Do you have a fixed-term electricity contract valid in your current apartment and you’re planning on moving? Don’t worry, you won’t be stuck with two electricity contracts. A fixed-term electricity contract can usually be terminated in the event of a change of address before the end of the contract period, and you can enter into a new electricity contract for your new home.

Electricity contracts on the weekend

If you need to turn on the power over the weekend or on a weekday evening, call your local power network company’s fault service, from which the power can be switched on as a paid quick switch. The fault service will then give you instructions on how to make the electricity contract.
