Due to the spectacular increase in energy costs, the consumer association CLCV considers that the numerous regular and extraordinary aids that households benefit from today are insufficient. For this reason, it is planned to triple the price of the energy check with a ceiling of 600 euros. The request was forwarded to Bercy.
This is the request that CLCV addressed Minister of Economy and Finance Bruno Le Maire, Monday, November 14. It indicates that the energy check for 2023 must be increased to 600 euros depending on income and that the population affected by this unit must be expanded. It is not the extraordinary check that is scheduled for the end of December, the fuel check that is scheduled for the month of November, nor the potential bonus for heating with wood that the utility association refers to here when it talks about the energy check. 2023. It is the annual and typical aid that is paid out in the spring.

The date April 2023 has been chosen for the annual and usual energy balance. that the amount of support can vary from 48 euros to 277 euros depending on the Reference Tax Income (RFR) for your home and the number of people living there.
An insufficient amount compared to the CLCV: “No, an annual energy check that costs 48 euros will not allow a person with a monthly salary of 900 euros to pay his heating bill. This is the case for a person who lives alone. No, a single parent household with two children and an income of 840 euros per month will not be able to cover its heating bill with a sum of 276 euros over a year. The annual costs of heating a home are currently between 1200 and 2000 eurosand this amount is expected to increase by 15% by 2023.”
CLCV notes the extraordinary measures taken by the government in 2022, but sees them as proof of the great economic uncertainty 40 percent of the population in France : According to CLCV, many consumers are forced to choose between eating and heating. Some people whose salary is less than 2,000 euros per month allocate 60% of their budget to basic needs (housing, transport, electricity) and therefore cannot keep up with the 15 to 20% increase in food prices.
Therefore, the utility association needs toalso increase this annual and usual control to help households pay their heating costs. Therefore, the CLCV asks Bruno Le Maire to increase the maximum amount of support available to people on the lowest incomes. Message sent…
