Electricity bill for VSEs: a discount of 100 euros per MWh granted by TotalEnergies

Good news for very small businesses (TPE) who have seen their electricity bills reach peaks. The energy giant TotalEnergies has announced a contribution which will reduce the average price of MWh to 280 euros excluding tax for its 22,000 VSE customers. The government undertook on January 6 to contain their average electricity bill at 280 euros per MWh for 2023, in order to protect those who do not benefit from the regulated sales tariff and who have renewed their electricity supply contract in the second half of 2022, hit hard by soaring prices.

The Electricity and gas branch of TotalEnergies “will contribute to this through a discount of 100 euros per megawatt hour (MWh) so that the electricity supply contracts signed during the second half of 2022 are reduced to an average annual price on 2023 of 280 euros HT per MWh”, indicated the group in a press release published this Monday, January 23, “following the consultations undertaken in recent days by the government”.
