Gas and Electricity Providers in France - Val Thorens
In France energy was nationalised until 2007, though after pressure from the EU the market was opened up. Previously the two main players were EDF and Engie, however consumers in France now have many options to choose from including Alterna, Cdiscount Energie and Total Direct energy.
After purchasing a property in Val Thorens, the most straightforward way to ensure utilities are set up is to inherit the previous owners accounts. All you need to do is send a meter reading and joint letter to the energy provider.
For the thrifty amongst us, ensuring you get the best deal is important. Many companies offer discounts if they provide both gas and electricity. If you do manage to find a better deal you will need to provide a proof of identification, proof of address and your French bank account details to the new provider.
For most international property owners, setting up direct debits is always a good idea to remove hassle and administration. The majority of property owners we work with use a local property manager to look after their utilities.
We specialise in generating bookings for owners, however, we work with some of the best property managers in the region, please fill out the contact form on this page if you would like us to introduce you to our network.
