To register, your signature is not required: you will receive a confirmation link via e-mail which serves as authentication. From a legal point of view it replaces your signature. The confirmation link will be sent to you automatically in the few minutes following the mailing of your registration form.

  • Your name
  • Your address
  • Your birthdate

  • Your bank account data
  • Your ID of your meter
  • Your Zählpunktummer

Zählpunktnummer This Zählpunktnummer (reporting point number) is a 33 digit number assigned to your appartment by the network provider.

Alternative utility suppliers and standard suppliers in your area

Before the market for electricity and gas was liberalized, network operators and utility suppliers were one entity with a monopoly for a certain region. Today, the utility providers that emerged from the separation of these entities are the standard suppliers people register with by default. However, chosing an alternative provider can lead to significant reductions in your expenses depending on the plan you chose. You can register with alternative utility providers such as Verbund, Schlaustrom or aWATTar by calling
0720 1155 70. Stromliste finds a cheaper plan and does the registration for you, for free - all it takes is a simple phonecall.
