With, in the first line, the establishment of a price shield to limit the surge in prices this winter.

The government also estimates that such an increase represents, on average, an increase in bills of:
Over the year, the CLCV association (Consommation Logement Cadre de vie) figures the increase at 240 to 300 euros per year per household, and qualifies the difference, despite the tariff shield, as “difficult to bear for the vast majority of French people. ”.

This aid, which will be paid by the end of the year, should concern 12 million households (i.e. four out of ten households) and its amount should be established at 100 or 200 euros, according to income, indicated the First minister.
