Swedish government announced on Wednesday that it will give 6 billion SEK (583 million euros) to help households ”hit” by high electricity prices.
Over 1.8 million households across the country will benefit from this plan, according to government calculations, EFE says.
The compensation will be based on the electricity consumption of each Swedish household from December, January and February.
Those who exceed a 2,000 KWh consumption will receive a maximum of SEK 2.000 per month (194 euros).
Money will be distributed automatically to the most affected households, without the need to apply for aid.
