The real bogus savings of electricity contracts


Several studies estimate that consumers subscribing to the peak hours / off-peak hours option lose between 30 and 50 euros per year.

Contracts encouraging consumers to use less electricity at peak hours (with the peak / off-peak option) are far from a good deal for the vast majority of the 10.7 million customers concerned.

This system actually costs more than it earns for many of the customers concerned compared to the basic offer.

It was the magazine

The alternative supplier Plüm Énergie, which arrives at the same conclusions in a study published Thursday, specifies that 85% of the customers do not find it.
