It is important to terminate your contract at the correct time as mentioned by the electricity providers. You can send the termination letter earlier but not later. For example, even though my contract termination period is only 6 weeks, I have sent my contract termination for 3 months and I have received the contract termination confirmation within a week.

It is the most common way to terminate the electricity contract per post. Here is a template for terminating the electricity contract.

I’m unsing this template since few years. You can just copy and edit this sample electricity contract.

  • Red font texts – To be changed
  • Black font texts – Not necessary to change

Kindly replace the red font once you have finished editing. Submit the document only in black font.

Note

You can find your electricity contract number (Vertragsnr.) on your existing contract. If you do not have that document, you can call your current electricity provider to get this detail.

It is not really necessary to add the contact details. If you wish to add it, you can add it under your signature.

Word document

I have also uploaded the word document. Do not press enter or add text before the heading “Kündigung meines Stromvertrags” because the template is suitable to fold and send in the cover. Adding text in a new line may misalign the letter and will not be suitable for folding. You can find a suitable cover below.

This letter template was prepared using MS word 2013. If you use any other version, kindly copy and paste the above text to eliminate the alignment error.


Email template

You can use the same text from the letter for the email too. Here a sample.
