Is the EDF blue price the cheapest ? During the energy crisis in 2022, the EDF blue rate was the cheapest on the electricity market thanks to the system of the energy price shield deployed by the state to cap the increase. Reductions of market offers (whether in alternative suppliers or at EDF itself) granted compared to the regulated blue rate have been deleted.

The price of off -peak hours of EDF at the regulated rate

Price in € incl. Tax of the supply of regulated electricity regulated EDF supplier up to date at 25/09/2023

�� Electricity prices in off -peak hours of EDF and Totalnergies

The full hour off -peak hours option (HPHC) allows benefit from a reduced kWh price during the hours where the demand in electricity is the lowest (generally at night, which explains that the full and off -peak hours price is sometimes called the day / night price). The amount of this reduction varies from one supplier to another.

L’HPHC option is offered by many electricity suppliers. To establish a price comparison, we have chosen two of the main French electricity suppliers: EDF, the historic and total supplier, formerly called Total Direct Energie (which is the leading French alternative supplier with more than 4 million customers, following The merger between Total Spring and Direct Energie). We present below the Online Totalnergies offer and the regulated price of EDF. Note that these two large suppliers offer a wide range of offers. For a comparison of all market suppliers, use our comparator.

The price of the subscription, regardless of the electricity supplier, corresponds to the Fixed share of the electricity bill. Its price therefore does not vary depending on the kWh consumed. Find the pricing grid of the annual subscription for individuals concerning the Eco Totalnergies Hours offer and the blue price of EDF in full hours off -peak hours.

THE kWh price correspond to the variable share of the invoice, it is necessary to multiply by the number of kWh consumed. The table below presents the prices of the KWH of the ONLINEnergies online offer and the regulated price of EDF blue sky in full hours off-peak hours for individuals.

�� The full hour off-peak is a good plan ?

The advantageous off -peak hour option for large consumers.

In 2018, 13 million households had the full hour off -peak option. The average consumption of French is 7,000 kWh/year for those who have the full hours and off -peak hours against just under 3,000 kWh/year for those who are optional basis. It is therefore the biggest electricity consumers who have the full hour option and off -peak hours and this is logical. This is the only case in which the preferential price of KWH in off -peak hours counterbalances the high price of electricity in full hours and the additional cost of the subscription.

Electric cumulus

. which can move their consumption at least 30% during off -peak hours.

For a big consumer, how to know if the off -peak hour option would be competitive according to profiles ? In fact, the option is only attractive for large electricity consumers who can Move at least 30% of their consumption during off -peak hours (therefore, generally, at night).

Concretely, it is therefore necessary Analyze its most energy -consuming uses and see if it is possible to move part of your consumption at night. If the water heater can, for example, be set to operate at night, if the launch of large household appliances (washing machine, dryer, dishwasher) can be programmed to run in off-peak hours, the full hour option off -peak hours can then be competitive. If hot water and heating are not electric, it is not interesting to choose the off -peak hour option since it will be more expensive than the base option.

Tip for user of a hot water tank. Most hot water balloons can be programmable to operate primarily in off -peak hours and make it the full hour and hollow hours option interesting. On the electrical panel, there are 3 positions: forced walk (works at any time), car (only works in off -peak hours) and Cutded food (does not work anymore). It is advisable to activate the auto function allowing the hot water tank to operate only during off -peak hours. During full hours, the hot water tank is stopped.

For the full hour off -peak hours option to be advantageous, it is therefore necessary that electricity consumption is to more than 30 % in off -peak hours if you are in 9 kVA.

�� How do I know if I have off -peak hours in my accommodation ?

To find out if the subscription is optional off -peak or base option, you have to look at the last electricity bill : in the “Characteristics of your price” section, the price option will be indicated in “base” or in “off -peak hours”.

Electricity invoice off -peak hours

In addition, in the event of a move, it is possible to look at your meter statement (often made on the inventory – learn more and download an inventory). If the consumption index is displayed on a single line, there are no off -peak hours, the subscriber is therefore optional, with a single kWh price. If consumption is displayed on two different lines, it is the off -peak hour option that has been subscribed.

It is also possible to find this information by looking at your counter:

Linky communicating and intelligent meter

For a Linky communicating and intelligent counter, Press the “+” scroll button until the price option appears.

Electromechanical meters

For a electromechanical counter (old metal wheel version): if it has two dials, the off -peak hour option is available, each displays a consumption index (one in full hours and one in off -peak hours). If it has only one, it is the basic option that works, so there are no off -peak hours.

Electronic counter

For a electronic counter : Look how many different indexes are displayed when you press the scrolling button: if only one index is displayed, there are no offshoots. If a second index is displayed by pressing the scroll button again, the off -peak option is activated.

Note: the off -peak hour option is only available from the 6 kVA meter power: 3 kVA subscribers are necessarily optional base.

�� When the night rate applies ?

There is eight hollow hours per day. Until the advent of Linky meters, the exact hours of off -peak hours were fixed according to the municipalities or the districts for large cities. Now off -peak hours are randomly allocated to each Linky counter.

Generally, off -peak hours are in a single block, at night, hence the name of night price which is sometimes associated with them. But, it may happen that they are divided between day (1:30 am at lunch time or in the afternoon) and at night (6:30 a.m.).

It should be noted that it is impossible to choose these hollow hours yourself. These are fixed according to the municipalities. Off -peak hours are indicated on electricity bills, with the other characteristics of the price (often on the back of the invoice). Off-peak hours are also available below in informing his city or postal code, Then by clicking on “know his off -peak hours“”.

Know off -peak hours if I have a Linky counter

The schedules of your off -peak hours are allocated by Enedis randomly. If you already have off -peak hours before installing your Linky meter, the schedules remain unchanged. On the other hand, once the new meter has been installed, you change your price option and you want to take advantage of off -peak hours, Enedis will attribute to you off -peak hours, regardless of your town.

To know your off -peak hours associated with your Linky counter, fill out the following form:

Regulated EDF Blue Price 2023: price per kWh off -peak/base

Regulated EDF Blue Price

The blue rate is the regulated electricity rate, fixed by the public authorities, which is aimed at private customers and professionals with a counter of a power less than or equal to 36 kVA. After an increase of +4 % in February 2022 and +15 % in February 2023, the price per kWh of EDF is now 0.€ 2276 in 6 kVA base at the regulated blue rate. In February 2024, a new increase is planned, but it should not exceed +10 % according to the Minister of Economy and Finance Bruno Le Maire.

For individuals, the blue price of EDF is available in four counting options (tariff options):

        As mentioned above, the regulated rate in force (TRV) corresponds to the blue rate. EDF is also the only electricity supplier to be authorized to market regulated prices. There remains the most widespread subscription for individuals in France, although it is not the most advantageous subscription. Indeed, since 2007, consumers have the choice between buying their electricity at the regulated blue rate at EDF, or at market prices at the supplier of their choice, sometimes cheaper than the blue rate.

        The EJP option is no longer marketed by EDF since 1998. This rate still exists for subscribers who have subscribed before this date and having always kept the option. EDF offers a double price with its EJP option: prices 4 times more expensive for 22 days (spread during the winter) and 2 times cheaper the 323 days remaining.

        EJP: a price again advantageous, the EJP rate is again interesting for consumers in a context of energy crisis where the price of electricity has soared. However, the EJP option is no longer marketed by EDF and some alternative suppliers offer cheaper prices throughout the year. The main drawback of the EJP option is that it requires monitoring if tomorrow is EJP to reduce its electricity consumption and avoid paying too much. Indeed, during the EJP days, the price per kWh is 4 times higher.

        �� An increase in the regulated EDF blue price by 15% capped on February 1, 2023

        The blue rate is set by the Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE), a independent public organization. The blue price is set to cover the operating costs of EDF (commercial costs, maintenance and exploitation of the network, but also production costs), or these costs have been increasing for several years. The blue rate has increased each year for 15 years, except for a slight decline in 2016.

        These increases should be extended, since the increases in recent years have not been sufficient to cover the increase in operating costs of the EDF nuclear fleet, whose power plants are aging. Added to this are the costs of upgrading nuclear park following Fukushima events, as well as investments in transport and distribution networks. Finally, we must quote a Energy taxes increase, and in particular the CSPE which notably finances the development of green energies.

        In 2020, the price of electricity (regulated rate corresponding to the blue rate) increased twice by 2.4 % in February and 1.54 % in August, followed by new increases in 2021 of 1.6 % in February and 0.48 % in August. In September 2021, the electricity price has soared on European scholarships. This new increase is explained by many factors: the resumption of activity following the COVVI-19 health crisis, the increase in gas prices of +300 % following the increase in demand for gas plants To produce electricity, the insufficiency of renewable energy production due to poor weather conditions ..

        According to expert calculations, the expected increase In February 2022 was 44.5 % excl, during the biannual revision proposed by the CRE. To help French consumers face this explosion in electricity prices, the government has announced the cap of this increase at +4%. The energy price shield allows consumers not to undergo the high increase in electricity prices, thus making the market offers less attractive.

        Indeed, for the fall-winter 2022/2023, the EDF blue price is the most competitive offer. Many EDF competitors are struggling to compete with the regulated rate blocked until the end of 2022. Some have temporarily suspended new subscriptions. Other alternative suppliers manage to offer identical prices at the EDF blue rate. Some suppliers, however, manage to compete with EDF, such as Mint Energie offering a price per kWh HT 10% cheaper than the regulated rate until September 30, 2023.

        As of February 1, 2023, the EDF blue rate again underwent a cap capped at 15 % including tax (instead of 99.22 % including tax, without the price shield). Despite this increase, this EDF flagship offer remains among the cheapest on the market with the energy crisis. According to the Service-Public website.fr, the increase in the electricity bill is on average € 25 per month instead of 200 euros per month (without the price shield) for households heating with electricity.

        �� How to find cheaper than EDF’s blue price ?

        financial economy

        The blue electricity rate remains the most common. Many consumers lack information on the energy market and do not dare to compete. However, all French people (subscribers at EDF or an alternative supplier) are powered by the same electricity, and benefit from the same technical service (public service provided by Enedis, former ERDF, regardless of the supplier).

        Is the EDF blue price the cheapest ? During the energy crisis in 2022, the EDF blue rate was the cheapest on the electricity market thanks to the system of the energy price shield deployed by the state to cap the increase. Reductions of market offers (whether in alternative suppliers or at EDF itself) granted compared to the regulated blue rate have been deleted.

        However, since the beginning of 2023, certain market offers notably alternative suppliers have offered more competitive prices. Some alternative suppliers indexed their prices on regulated prices by offering flat -rate reductions of X or Y%, thus ensuring the customer to save on his invoice in relation to the blue rate.
