To open an account with EDF for your new home in France,
EDF will ask you for:
- · Your full name
- · Your French address
- · The name of the previous owners or tenants
- · The readings
- · Your French bank details (RIB)
- · If you want the bills to be sent to the UK or anywhere else then your foreign address
Bills are sent every two months. It is best to set up a monthly direct debit. It gets readjusted when EDF come and read the meter twice a year.
You will pay a flat fee (abonnement) and consumption retroactively (consommation). Consumption is often estimated based on how many weeks you will be in your French home (if it is a holiday home) and how many people will be staying.
