After a challenge by the Haute-Garonne prefect, a Toulouse court struck out a by-law banning Enedis by the mayor of Blagnac but retained a section on residents’ common-law right to refuse entry.

All 28 residents in Gez-ez-Angles, Hautes-Pyrénées, voted to bar Enedis fitting Linky, while in Ain, a woman literally barred the firm, padlocking her meter cupboard.
