The territorial management of Enedis Tarn-et-Garonne organizes, in November, its traditional exchange and information meetings for the elected officials of the department. The first took place on Monday 7, in Lavit. The next three took place on the 9th, in Pommevic, and will take place on the 14th, in Lafrancaise, and on the 17th, in Septfonds. This year, these four meetings were all the more eagerly awaited by elected officials as they are taking place in an uncertain energy context. Invited by Jean-Baptiste Henry, territorial director of Enedis Tarn-et-Garonne, as well as Patrice Laborie and Sophie Rigal, privileged interlocutors of Enedis with the communities, around sixty elected officials from the department had made the trip to Lavit for this first local meeting of the year, during which many topics were discussed. To reassure elected officials about the passage of winter, Jean-Baptiste Henry returned at length to securing the electricity supply in France for this winter and the possibility, as a last resort, of carrying out exceptional power cuts, a theme which aroused the keen interest of elected officials. Enedis recalled that the decision was in the hands of RTE (Electricity transport network), which is in charge of ensuring the electricity supply-demand balance throughout the territory. On the other hand, it is up to Enedis to deploy the blackout plan locally and to participate in the smooth running of communication, alongside RTE and the Ministry of Ecological Transition. Thus, Enedis will deploy a complete system of information for all its customers, via its website, the Enedis application by my side, as well as its social networks (Twitter, Facebook). All will point to the site monecowatt.fr, managed by RTE, and which will allow each customer to see whether or not they are affected by the cuts. Enedis has also assured elected officials that direct communication with town halls will be initiated at the same time as soon as RTE senses the need to offload the electricity network. Support solutions for the energy transition: for more than an hour, other topics were discussed, particularly in connection with current issues. The electricity distributor thus mentioned the many services it offers to communities to support them in the energy transition. Enedis notably explained the operation of its new portal dedicated to local authorities, which allows municipalities and communities of municipalities to access the electrical data of their meter fleet. Objective: to allow local authorities to follow the evolution of their consumption and thus promote sobriety while reducing the energy bill.
Enedis and elected officials, a close relationship on a daily basis. Elected officials were also able to discuss other everyday topics with Enedis representatives: safety around electrical works, pruning issues or connection request procedure for the organization of parties, markets, fairs, etc. The quality of these exchanges confirms Enedis’ desire to maintain a close relationship with its local elected officials.
