The consumer association is launching its group electricity purchase operation on June 21.
The UFC-Que Choisir launches this Tuesday, June 21, a grouped subscription operation for electricity. The consumer association thus hopes to stimulate competition and lower prices. The more registrants there are, the more advantageous the rate negotiated with the electricity supplier will be.
Until September 21
An initiative from which Christiane Fouret already benefited last year for her gas. Thanks to the group purchase, his bill has fallen by around 12%, or around fifty euros per year. According to UFC-Que Choisir, almost 90% of consumers are still at the regulated price. For its president, it is necessary to play more competition. The association will select the cheapest supplier and take charge of the procedures. “The consumer has nothing to do, it is the new operator who takes care of everything“, Assures Alain Bazot, president of the association. Registrations are open until September 21. Consumers will then receive a personalized offer to which they are free to subscribe.
