and “tariff shield” electricity will not result in and “catch up” on invoices in 2023, despite the need for additional funding of around € 2 billion to implement the measure, Economic Minister Bruno Le Maire announced on Monday 30 May.
The government has pledged to limit the increase in electricity bills to 4% in 2022, a measure that will cost more than expected. “In 2023, additional funding will be needed, [car] electricity prices tended to rise »acknowledged the mayor.
This need for funding, “Around two billion euros”, “will be funded by the Finance Act, which we will review at the beginning of next school year, next October, for 2023”continued in front of journalists. “I want to be clear with our compatriots that their electricity bill will not catch up. French consumers will not see any catch-up in their account in 2023 related to this need for funding.he insisted.
Political issue before the parliamentary elections
L ‘the CLCV consumer and user association to the fact that the tariff shield for this year could be just a “phantasm”with a probable 8% reduction in the electricity tariff in 2023. “Such catching up is very likely to trigger a stratospheric rise in electricity prices in early 2023.”was concerned in a press release from the Consumer Protection Association, which based its concerns on a recent meeting of the Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE).
In the context of high inflation and the forthcoming parliamentary elections, this perspective has also taken a political turn. “The government is planning a eight percent increase in electricity. I warned the French that Emmanuel Macron was lying to them and raising their bill after the election.has Marine Le Pen responded on Twitter. “It will be the same for gas and fuel. Only RN members will protect you from this rumble “she wrote.
“In 2023 we want to continue to protect the French from rising electricity and gas prices”he assured the mayor because he thought it was too early for us to give details on the subject. “We will meet at the beginning of the school year 2022 to examine the financial statements”he said.
