If you want to be supplied with district heating, it is necessary to register beforehand. This registration needs to include details on the property that is to be supplied, the intended start of supply as well as the required amount of heat.

After your registration, we will examine whether a connection to the district heating network is possible and if it is necessary to subsidize construction costs. However, a subsidy will only be charged if the connection results uneconomical for us.

If a connection to our district heating supply network is possible, we will submit you a contract offer regarding supply and purchase of district heating based on your registration details. Once concluded the contract, we will create the district heating service line. 

Before you can use district heating at home, it is necessary to transform it into lower pressure or temperature. For that purpose, a so-called service line station needs to be installed.

Our subsidiary job (Jenaer Objektmanagement- und Betriebsgesellschaft mbH) is happy to take care of the planning, solicitation and installation as well as the running of your service line station. If you would like to receive an offer for this service, please mark "heating service with/without warm water" as desired service on the registration form. In this case, please have the form sheet service line station filled in by your specialized company for heating.
