In addition to its lower environmental footprint, the city of Malaunay has also achieved cost savings on its energy bills. Taking 2006 as the starting year and considering the increase in energy prices since that year, the city's energy bill this year should have amounted to EUR 419,000. The final figure was actually EUR 204,000 representing a saving of over 50%. Furthermore, the city has not experienced a tax increase since 2004 and continues to reduce its debt. Since 2017, the city of Malaunay has been a member of the French National Association of Territories with Positive Energy (there are nearly 200 in France), focused on implementing a new energy model in France.
