Should I subscribe to E.Leclerc Energies’ energy supply?

With widespread publicity since the inception of supplier Barry, cost-effective power offerings will become more and more prevalent in the energy market. What is it and is it worth subscribing to?

The principle of energy supply at cost (also called dynamic pricing) thing is price per kWh W is indexed on the wholesale market, namely EpexSpot. The latter fluctuates every day depending on the demand and supply of energy. As a result, this type of offer is more intended for people who are flexible about their energy consumption and therefore may change over time. This is, for example, a type of offer that may be of interest to owners of electric vehicles who will be able to charge the car at night and benefit from a bargain price per kWh HT during these time slots.

For people less confident about the energy market, this is more interesting to subscribe :

  1. supply of electricity at a fixed price, which protects against an increase in the price of kWh of W for x years;
  2. supply of electricity at an indexed price granting a percentage discount on the price of kWh without tax: the price of kWh without tax follows the changes in the blue EDF tariff, both upward and downward, while remaining x% cheaper. A good way to save money!
