About Proxelia

Proxelia was created in 2004 by three local distribution companies (in French: entreprises locales de distribution - ELD): SER Lassigny, la SICAE de la Somme et la SICAE Oise (SICAE : Sociétés d'Intérêt Collectif Agricole d'Electricité), which were created after World War I as part of a movement of rural electrification. The companies fused as a response to the future opening of the electricity market in 2007, in order to take advantage of economies of scale (the three companies serve 210 000 customers across their respective territories). Proxelia and the three companies that make up it are associated with the Electralabel Group and the Compagnie Nationale du Rhône.

The three ELD hold the majority of share capital (66%), but 34% is owned by the Compagnie Nationale du Rhône and Engie (which has since acquired Electrabel). The company is currently headed by Mr Jean-Michel MILCO (Chairman) and Ms. Nadège NOE (CEO).

Proxelia's expansion has focussed mainly on the north of France, especially Picardy, and its main selling point is as a local business serving its region.
