The Norwegian government will deduct part of the electricity bill from the highest bills due to the rise in prices

The Norwegian government intends to include a deduction in the highest electricity bills of households in the country due to rising prices from next month in an initiative that only requires the approval of parliament.

This was announced on Saturday by the Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Store, who stipulated that the state will pay half of the bills if the monthly electricity costs end above 6 euros per kilowatt / hour.

Country houses and holiday homes are not covered by this new regulation.

“An extraordinary situation like this requires extraordinary measures,” said Store. “It is a powerful response to what we know was a serious and difficult situation for many people,” he noted in comments collected by Norwegian public broadcaster NRK.

The measure can be recognized with this month’s bill until March 2022 and will cost the Norwegian government around 500 million euros to mitigate the impact of the record electricity prices affecting households across Europe.
