Energy saving: something concrete to get through the winter


Until now, a household spent about 1,590 euros a year on energy for its home. In February, bills will rise by an average of €25 a month for gas and €20 for electricity: these increases would have reached €200 per item without the government’s tariff shield. The Metropolis of Lyon anticipated this growth: for months it developed concrete solutions for its residents. We guide you to find your way through less consumer support, emergency equipment and financial aid.

To try it is to accept it

Guillaume, 43 years old, teacher and tenant in Lyon 3

“Since we monitor our electricity consumption every day with Ecolyo, we have gained new habits at home. For detergents, we went to 30 ° C; several dishes are cooked in the oven at the same time. Since we never use the hood, we turned it off. And we cut the night box! The result? In 2022, electricity will decrease by 15%. »
