The Government of France announced this Wednesday the payment of a check for 100 euros for some 6 million low-income households in the country, to help them cope with rising energy prices.
The aid will be paid automatically in December for all those households that meet the conditions that Prime Minister Jean Castex will detail this Thursday.
In this way, the Executive wants to alleviate the consequences of a rise that it considers “temporary” in energy prices and that may have serious consequences during winter, when a rise in consumption is expected due to the cold.
The rise has been especially important when it comes to gas, due to the worldwide cost of this product.
The french government already helps the most modest homes on your energy bill with 150 euros.
