No action is required

Power control assignment is automatic and no action is required. The eligibility criteria are the same as for 2023. The amount of support, which ranges between 48 and 277 euros, is calculated according to the reference tax income (RFR) and the composition of the household. Residents of nursing homes, independent residences, Ehpa (accommodation facility for the elderly), ESLD (long-term care facility) or USLD (long-term care unit) can also use state support.

If you are eligible and still haven’t received your support at the end of the month, you can apply on the website chequeenergie.gouv.fr or by phone on 0 805 204 805.

Several ways to use

An energy check can be used to pay utility bills, buy fuel or some energy work. This year, it can also be used to pay rent, including energy costs, in the social housing fund.

It can be used online by entering the coupon link on the service provider’s website or mailed to pay the invoice. In order to avoid advances on a recurring invoice, it is possible to ask the supplier to automatically take into account the check for the following year. The amount will be deducted directly from the electricity or gas bill.
