Meter reading takes place once a year and the balance of the account is adjusted accordingly. In case of unusual consumption, an interim meter reading can be made by the provider or requested by the occupier. In case of absence, a postcard will be left in the letterbox indicating the next meter reading date and approximate time.

In Luxembourg-City, bills are sent by the Ville de Luxembourg services.

Terminate Account

To cancel an account, the tenant/owner should contact the electricity and gas supplier at least a week before moving. A final meter reading will need to be done before the account can be closed. This can be done online or by downloading the moving house form.
