Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions secretary Are Tomasgard demands that the Norwegian state picks up more of the electricity bills.

Despite the government’s electricity support package, through which the state picks up 55% of the costs over 70 øre per kilowatt-hour in a month, many people still have high electricity bills.

“The state must take a much larger share of the bill, and this means that the rates in the government’s electricity package must go up. The model is broad and can be effectively adjusted,” LO secretary Are Tomasgard told FriFagbevegelse.

According to the magazine, a number of LO members are desperate over the high electricity bills. 

The government said earlier this week that it is open to making adjustments to the adopted electricity package but that it first wants to see its effects.
