The Allego charging network has announced a price hike for almost all of Europe as of September 1. The increase is notable in France.
Bad news if you fill up with electricity from an Allego terminal. The network announced an increase in its prices in Europe on September 1, with only Denmark and Sweden being spared. An increase had already been applied in the spring. Allego has to deal with rising electricity prices on the Old Continent.
And the increase is strong on the French market. From the start of the school year, on an alternating current charging station up to 22 kW, it will be 50 cents per kWh instead of 40 cents. For fast DC charging, up to 50 kW, it will be 69 cents per kWh instead of 55. For ultra-fast charging above 50 kW, the price will drop from 65 to 79 cents per kWh!

Note that Allego communicates “default” prices, including VAT. These prices may be different when it is linked to a brand, which may in turn adapt the price. Allego is particularly associated with Carrefour, which has accelerated the deployment of charging stations in the car parks of its hypermarkets in 2022. At home, Allego has also installed its terminals in the car parks of Géant Casino and has just signed an agreement with the Bertrand group , which owns several restaurant chains (such as Au Bureau). Allego also installed its first bollards on three-color highways this year.
