Energy crisis: Enedis will be able to turn off hot water via Linky this winter, are you worried?

The head of the electricity network Enedis will be able to turn off the hot water in the context of energy sobriety. Let’s summarize the results.

The order, published in the Official Journal on Tuesday, September 27, 2022, has caused panic among some Internet users. In fact, from the following October 15network manager Enedis can temporarily suspend the operation of some hot water tanks, according to a regulation published in the Official Journal on September 27. The measure will be in effect only between 12:00 and 14:00 in case of peak electricity consumption.and until April 15.

Who will be affected by these cuts?

The measure concerns c private, professional and local authority customers who have an electricity contract of less than or equal to 36 kVA and who have opted for a ‘peak/off-peak’ subscription from their electricity supplier. A total of 4.3 million customers in France will suffer the cuts.

It is thanks to the Linky smart meter that Enedis will be able to disconnect the cumulus from the grid, as shown by L’UFC-Que-Choose.

In fact, cumulus programmed to heat water from 12 to 2 p.m., ie. during off-peak periods and thus when electricity is cheaper, cannot be started systematically. Watching TV, connecting a smartphone or turning on the stove will remain quite possible.
