On Wednesday, the government will remit a regulation for how the payments of the high-cost protection should take place.
In a first step, the support will be paid out to the households and the plan is for the payments to begin in February 2023 if nothing unforeseen occurs.
– For a family in a house in electricity area 4 with a consumption of 20,000 kWh per year, this is a support of almost SEK 16,000, says Energy and Business Minister Ebba Busch at a press conference.
The exceptionally high electricity prices, which require “exceptional measures” for households to cope with the economy, according to Minister for the Elderly and Social Insurance Anna Tenje (M).
– Many households have a hard time when electricity prices go up, and therefore the government and the authorities work hard to ensure that the high-cost protection for electricity prices reaches households during February, says Anna Tenje.
Försäkringskassan will pay out the support and the payments to the households will take place without an application requirement. The plan is for payments to begin in February 2023 if nothing unforeseen occurs.
The government will “in the near future” come back with a proposal on how companies, associations and other organizations will be allowed to take part in the high-cost protection.
