What is the social tariff?

The social tariff for natural gas and/or electricity, also referred to in the legislation as the social maximum price, ensures that individuals or families that belong to certain categories benefit from a more advantageous price than the commercial tariff.

This tariff is granted automatically and is set twice a year by the federal energy regulatory, the CREG. It is the same for all suppliers or distribution system operators, who are obliged to apply it to those who are eligible.
