During the winter of 2021-2022, power prices in the southern parts of Norway increased significantly. To compensate electricity customers for the high electricity prices, the government introduced an electricity subsidy scheme for households and for the agricultural sector.
This report describes the characteristics of, and calculates the electricity production from, Norwegian households that are registered as prosumers, i.e., customers who can produce electricity and who supply surplus electricity production back to the electricity grid.
The average price of electricity for households, excluding taxes and grid rent, was 76.3 øre per kWh in the third quarter of 2021. This is more than twice as high compared to the average price in third quarter the last five years.
