The Center Party wants to lower electricity grid fees by at least 30 percent. It is one of the proposals that the party is now presenting to overcome the high electricity prices.
The Center Party wants to push down electricity prices this winter and the coming winters with several new proposals. According to the party’s own calculations, the proposals mean a total reduction of more than SEK 5,700 a month this winter for a villa with average consumption in southern Sweden.
– Today we have a record high electricity price in Sweden, and it mainly affects southern Sweden, says party leader Annie Lööf at a press conference.
About SEK 2,500 – per year
One of the proposals is to lower the electricity network charges by at least 30 percent for all households. According to the party, for an average villa in the Stockholm area, this would mean a saving of approximately SEK 2,500 annually.
The electricity grid fee is the cost that consumers pay to have the electricity transported to their home and consists of a fixed and a variable part, the latter of which varies depending on how much electricity is used.
The center party also wants to lower the electricity price through counter-trading, which according to the proposal means that Svenska kraftnät is tasked with procuring power production that can be used at high electricity prices. According to the party, increased biopower production can help to quickly push the price down again.
Want to introduce “green deduction”
In addition to that, the Center wants to see a green deduction of 50 percent, a maximum of SEK 25,000, for installing a heat pump, district heating or geothermal heating.
The party also wants to take measures so that Sweden can double its electricity production by 2030, something that they previously highlighted in their 35-point action plan to increase emission-free electricity production during the next term.
