Soon back to school ! Are you a student and about to move into your studio or roommate? In this guide, we show you all the steps for your electricity/gas contract and our tips for paying less!
First scenario, you are alone in this accommodation:
Second scenario, you are moving in as a roommate:
The opening of the energy market has revolutionized everything. As a reminder, in 2007, the energy market was opened up to competition. For consumers, this was the start of supplier choice: the obligation to take out their electricity contract with EDF and their gas contract with GDF was revoked. Around thirty suppliers currently share the market. They compete with each other by offering different price lists and services.
The EDF bill for this student is €279. With Ohm Energie, a single student in an apartment can save thanks to contracts dedicated to small consumption, such as Ohm Énergie, thanks to which the annual bill can be reduced by €23 according to our estimates.
The EDF bill in this case amounts to €718 per student. It is with Mint Énergie that colocation can save the most, reducing the annual bill per student to €632, i.e. a saving of €86 per year all the same!
The annual energy bill amounts to €2,250, or €450 per roommate at regulated electricity and gas prices. With a cheaper offer like Mega Energie's, each roommate could save €38 per year.
