Indexation in February: depending on your type of variable contract, status quo or 50% reduction in gas and electricity
We are talking here about contracts of the type “Flux” or “Direct” at Engie, variable at Dats24 or Octa+, Online at Mega or pixel at Total Energies: the tariff for a given month is calculated here at the end of the month, based on the average market price observed during the month in question. This means that the price for January is not known until the end of the month ! But that’s good: we’re at the end of the month!
Based on the indices collected automatically by our tool since the beginning of the month, our calculator shows that we can expect a very significant drop in the rates applied for January compared to those for December: around 50%!
According to our calculations, the Belpex index which serves as the basis for the calculation of all these tariffs should indeed go from 269 € the MWh at 130.07, that is a drop of 51%!
For a Flow-type contract, this means, for example, that the price per kwh of electricity would go from 34 cents at 18 cents (This is the energy part, which today constitutes the largest part of the bill, to which must be added distribution costs and taxes). It is 60% less than the Easy rate, with the same supplier (see below).
The news is just as encouraging for gas: Here too, prices continued to fall throughout January, and this will show directly on your overall bill: the TTF101 index, for example, which governs the evolution of the price in Flow contracts, should drop according to our calculator of €117 per Megawatt hour at 64, i.e. a drop of 45%. Concretely, this should mean a Flow tariff which should pass 14 cents per kilowatt hour of gas in January at 8.7 cents per kWh for February.
