Should a house in germany have electricity?

This answer was rated:

Should a house in germany have electricity?
We have bought a house without electricity.
Is it obligatory for the government to supply electricity at least to the street.
The nearest electricity is 300 meters away.

Dear Customer,


thank you for using Just Answer.

There is no requirement that a private house must be connected with the electricity.
An electricity supply obligation exists only for public places.
You must apply for electricity the electricity operator in that region. You have to pay the costs of the connection.


I hope I was able to help.

Hi Anja,
Thanks for your response. The answer is good.
We have a further question. We bought the house which is a small farm house with 2 barns with the intention of being a sufi centre. In regard to your answer this would then be a centre open to the public.
How do we apply to make this a public place?
This would then also mean we are applicable for the Government to provide electricity, correct or not?
Kind regards
Daniel Goodwin
Hi Daniel,.
Thank you for your further question.

Unfortunately, public Place do not means in this context, that many people may enter the Building. Public Place refers to the property of the State and its institutions.
Since you have bought the House, you are responsible as the owner for it.
Would you rent a House from the State, so the State as owner and Landlord would be responsible for the electricity.
