The regulated gas tariffs applied by Engie to millions of French households will increase by 1.6% on November 1, due to the increase in market prices, the Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE) announced on Monday. .
This increase is 0.4% for customers who use gas for cooking, 0.9% for those who have dual use, cooking and hot water, and 1.7% for homes that heat themselves. gas,
”she said in a statement.
This increase for the month of November is explained by the evolution of gas prices on international markets and in particular on the liquefied natural gas market
", adds the regulator.
The increase would have even reached 5.7% if a smoothing mechanism had not been put in place until February to limit too sudden changes.
The law provides for the gradual phasing out by 2023 of regulated sales tariffs (TRV) for gas.
Engie has therefore ceased to market contracts of this type, but continues for the moment to apply these tariffs to consumers already benefiting.
In the future, only so-called market offers will remain, at prices freely set by the suppliers.
