Dams: Dupont-Aignan in Corrèze Wednesday against plans to open to competition

The president of Debout France (DLF) Nicolas Dupont-Aignan will be Wednesday on a dam in Corrèze to denounce plans to open the competition of hydroelectric dams French, pushed by Brussels for many years despite the reluctance of Paris.

The sovereignist candidate, head of the European list, will go from 14:30 to the dam Chastang (Corrèze) on the Dordogne River, he said in a statement to AFP.

"After airports and highways, the looting of French public goods continues with hydroelectric dams", insists the former presidential candidate, accusing the government "to obey the orders of the Brussels Commission to privatize the management of 150 French hydroelectric dams in the name of the all-powerful competition ".

At the beginning of March, the European Commission sent France a new letter of formal notice demanding "a precise timetable" for the competition of a "significant number" of hydropower concessions currently being exploited by EDF and Engie.

Sea snake of the French energy, the file has advanced in recent years, Paris reluctant to deprive the incumbent of what is considered the jewels of French electricity because largely amortized and producing at the request of the renewable electricity.

At the beginning of April, more than one hundred opposition MPs (PCF, PS, LFI, LR …) had asked the government to oppose the opening to competition, in full debate on the privatization of Airports from Paris.

On April 6, some 250 to 300 yellow vests had gathered in front of another of the Dordogne dams on the Dordogne, that of Bort-les-Orgues, again to denounce a possible privatization.
