In a climate where every euro counts, the specter of the energy crisis looms large and weighs heavily on the shoulders of the French. As energy prices soar and push many households into the throes of uncertainty, one financial aid stands out like a beacon in the storm: energy control. But this crucial advantage has an expiration date and the clock is ticking. So many households could benefit from this support if they took action before the fateful deadline. Here’s why and how to use your energy audit without delay.
The critical context of energy prices
Faced with an unprecedented increase in energy costs in 2023, many French people are struggling to keep their heads above water. Upheavals in global energy markets and geopolitical tensions are increasing pressure on household budgets, making energy controls more important than ever.
