The controversial cable to England sends out 70 times more electricity than it takes in, the newspaper E24 reports.

Since it was put into trial operation on October 1 last year, it has sent a total of 3.5 terawatt-hours (TWh) of power out of Norway, the newspaper writes.

The water level in the reservoirs in Southern Norway is very low, as is the case in Western Norway. But at the same time, the new cable exported electricity to England 194 out of 200 days in operation. In these days, up to April 19, exports have been 70 times greater than imports.

Minister of Petroleum and Energy Terje Aasland (AP) says he is considering implementing several measures regarding the export of power.
