The average electricity price for January is the lowest in 13 years according to the Nord Pool power exchange.
The electricity price for Oslo in January was calculated at DKK 0.24 per kilowatt hour (kWh) without VAT and surcharge. By comparison, the average price in Oslo for the first month of the year last year was twice as high, 55 øre per kWh.
The rest of the country also had low average electricity prices in January. Kristiansand and Bergen ended at 0.24 per kWh, while Molde, Trondheim and Tromsø ended at 0.23 per kWh.
