ENGIE, the leading supplier of green electricity in France1, is continuing to demonstrate its commitment as a pioneer of the energy revolution by enriching its self-consumption offering for private customers. With the “My Power” offer, the French can now store the electricity produced by photovoltaic panels installed on their roof in a battery, and thus use it even if the sun is not shining; an affordable made-to-measure product with a financing solution over 10 years starting at €109 per month2, with support provided by ENGIE with all the administrative procedures. A very tangible illustration of the harmonious progress to which the ENGIE group is contributing around the world.
Self-consumption: a growing trend in France
2 French citizens out of 3 are now in favour of installing solar panels on the roofs of their houses. 88% of them would like to do so to use this electricity for their own needs, and therefore not resell it to the network3. A societal trend whereby people want to consume what they produce. For Simon Borel, a sociologist responsible for research at the Society and Consumption Observatory, “it is the sign of a societal change where individuals now aspire to consumption models that are more horizontal, distributed and contributory in which they feel they are actors”.
To meet these expectations, ENGIE is today enriching its range of “My Power” self-consumption offers, launched in 2017 and targeted at the 4.4 million house owners in France.
ENGIE is developing solutions in France to contribute to more harmonious progress
Beginning in 2016, ENGIE initiated a revolution in France in supplying energy to private and professional customers by announcing that its entire electricity supply offering would be green for new customers (except for the Happ-e offer)1. A year and a half later, ENGIE is the leading supplier of green electricity in France, with over 1.6 million customers.
A success in no small part due to the wide range of green electricity1 offers available among which: “Elec’Car”, that allows owners of electric or hybrid cars to recharge their batteries at home, benefiting from a reduction of 50% on the KWh price during off-peak hours, and in particular at night7; “Elec Weekend”, an offer whose kWh ex-VAT price is 30% less expensive at the weekend8; or “Mon Elec” which allows customers to choose a renewable electricity production site9.
In France, ENGIE has 4 million private and professional electricity customers in all, and growth of its portfolio of approximately 20% per year.
