Compensation scheme for high electricity prices

New electricity support scheme from 01.09.23

The electricity subsidy scheme means that all customers are reimbursed for part of their electricity costs through their network charges for electricity consumption related to household purposes.

Customers are reimbursed a percentage of the costs above NOK 0.70 per kilowatt hour excluding VAT. From June 1, 2023, the state covers 90% above 70 øre per kilowatt hour.

Hourly spot price
The government has decided that from September 1, electricity subsidies will be based on the hourly spot price instead of a monthly average. This means that each individual customer will receive electricity subsidies that are linked to their own electricity consumption. The hours that the spot price is above 70 øre per kilowatt hour will be used as the basis for the electricity subsidy.

The electricity subsidy will appear as a monthly average price on the invoice, just as before. The difference is that previously the average price was the same for all customers. Now it will be individual for each customer.

You do not need to apply for electricity subsidies. The electricity subsidy is automatically deducted from your electricity bill.
