Stop Service

How Do I Stop My Electric Service?

If you are moving, please notify us at least three business days in advance by completing and submitting the form below, calling (202) 833-7500, or by visiting one of our Customer Service Centers. The three business days' notice is important, because you are responsible for - and will be billed for - all service at your present address until you notify us. If no party is moving in, the service may be disconnected.

What About the Final Reading of My Electric Meter?

  • We provide several options when you are closing your account
  • We can estimate your final meter reading
  • You may ask us to obtain a final reading
  • You may call in your own final reading to our Read-A-Meter line, (202) 872-3377, giving us your name, address and account number
  • Or you may return the meter reading to us by e-mail (see How To Read Your Meter
