The government’s plan: Wants to introduce an “electricity emergency”


In the wake of rising electricity prices, more people are expected to find it difficult to cope with the electricity bill. Now the government is presenting a proposal that involves a government loan to the electricity trading companies so that they can handle the situation.

– We want to increase security for those who worry about whether they will be able to pay their electricity bills by winter, says Finance Minister Mikael Damberg (S) at a press meeting together with Energy Minister Khashayar Farmanbar (S).

The government therefore proposes an “electricity bill emergency”, which means that the state offers loans to the electricity trading companies to ensure that they in turn can offer installment plans to customers.

According to the ministers, it is “a supplementary measure” for people to manage their electricity bills this winter.

– We see that a measure like this is needed in this situation because otherwise the ultimate consequence is usually that the electricity is turned off, says Mikael Damberg.

The goal is for the government loan to be in place by the time the November bill is due.

How much money is involved, and other details, Mikael Damberg asks to come back to after meetings with the industry.
