“Let's stop criticizing our banks!”

More than ten years after the subprime mortgage crisis, all the light has not been shed, and yet the idea of ​​the guilt of the banks has taken hold firmly in people's minds. They are even blamed for the double fault, since after playing with fire and triggering the crisis, they allegedly asked for help from the States. This unanimous condemnation, the result of incomplete analyzes, is a heavy component of the bank bashing that has raged since then and unfortunately works against our interests.

The Energy and Climate Law promulgated in November 2019 provides for the gradual extinction by 2023 of these gas TRVs, which are set by the public authorities and have been deemed contrary to European law by the Council of State.

Less than 4 million individuals still have a gas contract at the TRVs. Since November 20, Engie has ceased to market new contracts of this type.
