Sample Termination Notice for Gas and Electricity

Avoid Expensive Rollover Rates by Terminating Today

If you don't terminate your contract, then you'll be placed on a rollover contract. The energy companies want you to forget or not notice this so then they can raise your prices (sometimes by as much as 100%), and there's nothing you can do about it.

So check your current contract and send your termination notice to your current supplier without delay.

Termination Checklist

Here's our step by step guide to prevent your contract rolling over onto expensive new prices.

  1. Download our termination letter template.
  2. Complete and send to your current provider as soon as possible.
  3. Compare new quotes for your gas and electricity supplies.
  4. Switch to a new contract for the next 12-48 months.

Your renewal offer letter states the deadline for sending in this application notice. If it doesn't, you'll need to refer to your original contract for these termination dates.

N.B.: If you terminate your contract and don't take out a new one your rates will increase by 300%. The energy company will place you on so-called "out of contract" rates that are at two and five times your current prices.
